May I suggest contacting a refinery or pulp mill for the specifications that they used when they installed loudspeakers as components of their plant-wide warning systems for compliance with the Process Safety Management rule? The hardware must be capable of withstanding a range of weather and environmental conditions.

A challenge with loudspeaker systems and similar audible warning devices is that they must be periodically tested. At the refineries, that requires a weekly test.

Respectfully yours,

>I realize this is not particularly a lab safety topic but it is an important part of safety on campus and I have all of you to possibly provide some valuable input. Our campus has alerting via text msg., email, cell phone, etc. and we are interested in a loud speaker systems for the same purpose.
>Do you on your campus have alerting by a loud speaker system. Do you like it and can you point me to vendors who have supplied your system and with whom you are pleased?
