Evacuation Alarm System
Evacuate as quickly as possible
In the event of a fire everyone must leave the building as quickly as possible via the correct route, that goes without saying. A thorough evacuation system is essential to ensure that such a process runs efficiently and effectively.
The difference between a fire alarm system and an evacuation alarm system is not that clear; both are closely linked. It is therefore not easy to indicate whether you need a fire alarm system or an evacuation alarm system. In many cases the evacuation system is part of the complete fire alarm system.
HooVos, proud of our customer relationships
We have a fitting solution for every situation
Van der Burg has been around since 1982. Started as a supplier in trailer parts, the company successfully grew into a reliable importer and exporter of new and used trucks, and as a wholesaler in truck and trailer parts.
Thanks to good and fast communication, Van der Burg and HooVos can mean a lot to each other. We have a nice collaboration!
We (Inkoper MKB; translates to: Buyer Small and Medium-sized Enterprises, SMEs) have been working with HooVos for several years now. As a purchasing organization, we are always looking for reliable partners and HooVos is one of them.
As a buyers collective with a strong focus on the automotive industry, we have high safety requirements. This includes the inspection and maintenance of our extinguishing agents.
The maintenance we carry out doesn’t stop at the municipal office but goes much further: we maintain all municipal buildings.
This means that the municipality is a client who offers us a lot of variety in terms of work and we are proud of that!
The parts of an evacuation alarm system
Evacuation alarm systems have the purpose of properly evacuating a building as quickly as possible. Such installations can be divided into word installations (a spoken message to ensure that the building is being evacuated) and slow-whooping installations in which sirens are used. Both help to ensure that evacuation takes place in every room of the building.
The parts of an evacuation alarm system
An evacuation alarm system consists of various parts. The core of the installation is formed by the fire panel. This control panel is assisted by manual fire alarms (located near hose reels and emergency exits) and slow-whoops (also called: sirens). These slow-whoops are activated as soon as the glass of a manual alarm is pressed. The combination of these components contribute to the safe evacuation of your premises.
Flawless process support
Our business partner installs safe and reliable evacuation alarm systems in accordance with all legal standards. The installation is always accompanied by a PVE (Programma van Eisen; same as the Program of Requirements or PoR) before you receive valid certification. Our partner guides you every step of the way to ensure that your building becomes a pleasant and safe living environment/workspace.
Frequently asked questions
The location of an extinguishing agent must be marked in accordance with NEN 4001-3011. If necessary, the location of the extinguishing agent should be indicated with additional signs. For example, consider an icon in combination with an arrow for the direction. You must keep an overview of the types, number and locations of the extinguishing agents.
In general, we recommend foam extinguishers, because they cause the least collateral damage. Our foam extinguishers can extinguish up to 1,000 V and can also be used on, for example, normal-sized meter boxes.
In addition, powder extinguishers are mainly recommended for hazardous substances. Carbon dioxide snow extinguishers no longer fall under the basic extinguishing agents and can be used extra for, for example, a server room.
A building has such a lighting installation that it can be used and left safely. Obligation to provide emergency lighting is determined by the functional use of a building. This is indicated by a table in the Building Decree.

We advise our customers to replace the AED after the manufacturer’s warranty has expired. The manufacturer’s warranty can differ per brand, but on average this is 8 years. We are not saying that the AED will no longer work after the manufacturer’s warranty has expired, but ‘assuming’ that the AED works in the event of an incident is too great a risk!
Our planning will contact you annually to agree a date for maintenance. So you never have to think about the safety of your home or business again. If a technician sees a change in your situation, he will give you advice about this during the time for maintenance. If you have any questions before, you can contact us. Our representative will then visit you without obligation.
Yes, and it is also a recognized training company.
Yes, this is especially important for insurance companies.
HooVos is a recognized fire protection company and must maintain the extinguishing equipment of their customers every year, so that they retain their recognition. Insurance companies sometimes want to deviate from this, but this depends on the relevant risk. If you also want to have the maintenance carried out once every two years, make sure that you receive this ‘in black and white’ from the insurance company, so that you will be paid by them in the event of an incident.
