Press release

11 May 2015

The new VIMPEX VAD23™ Range of EN 54-23 Visual Alarm Devices (VADs) will be the key focus on the company’s stand at this year’s Firex International. VIMPEX VAD23™ is an extremely versatile family of products; with devices for wall and ceiling mounting and models that combine either a traditional electronic sounder or a voice sounder with a low current EN 54-23 rated VAD. The WMBS wall mounted VAD is fully compatible with the popular Excel range of sounders and beacons. The VIMPEX VAD23™ devices are fully specified, delivering market-leading light coverage, significant installation cost savings and flexible solutions for the designer and end-user.

Vimpex’s commitment to EN 54 approved products extends to the Fire-Cryer® Plus Voice sounder, which is now approved to EN 54-3 and remains the most versatile and intelligible voice sounder available. 

Alongside these products visitors to stand D142 will see the new Smart+Guard series of call point protective covers from Sigma Fire & Security. Exclusively available to the trade in the UK from Vimpex, this exciting new product has come to market through a strategic partnership with Sigma. Smart+Guard is a tough polycarbonate hinged protective cover that can easily be installed over a range of call points, emergency switches and other devices to provide protection from vandalism, accidental damage or misuse.

Also on show will be Vimpex’s wide range of alarm and evacuation products, which include fire alarm sounders and voice sounders, bells, call points, PSU’s, door holders, water leak detection systems, photoluminescent life safety signage and fire alarm accessories.
