Emergency Evacuation (EACIE)™

The EACIE Enclosure™ forms part of an evacuation alert system, for use specifically for the Fire and Rescue Service (FRS) in buildings with flats or maisonettes. The EACIE Enclosure™, designed in accordance with BS8629, houses evacuation alert control and indicating equipment (EACIE).

Its function is to aid the Fire and Rescue Service in effectively managing fire incidents. The enclosed electrical panel, positioned within the enclosure, enables the Fire and Rescue Service to oversee and control building evacuation. This is achieved through the use of specific switches that both indicate and control evacuation procedures on various floors.
