What is EN54-23, and how does it affect you?

There’s new legislation on Visual Alarm Devices (VADs) and they’re causing a bit of confusion amongst installers. We’d like to help you to understand it, and make sure you’re up to date with the new European Standard. The standard specifies the minimum requirements for VADs, providing performance criteria and test methods in a uniform and consistent way. This provides manufacturers a mechanism to specify VAD device performance, allowing system designers to choose the most appropriate device for a particular application.
