WES3Evacuation and emergency system
WES3Range...now featuring the new CONNECT control unit
WES3 is an enhanced wireless evacuation and medical alert system for construction site safety.
There are many causes of emergencies such as fire on construction sites. According to the NFPA, the leading sources include:
• Heating equipment
• Intentional (arson)
• Hot works including welding, cutting, grinding, soldering, roof work
Buildings under construction are at risk as they are largely unprotected - traditional protection systems such as sprinklers and fire walls are
commonly non-existent. They are also vulnerable to trespassing and arson, risking entire projects and risking lives.
Protecting your personnel, buildings and wider community with a reliable, innovative wireless evacuation system is key to ensuring minimal damage,
both in terms of human life and financial loss. That's where WES3 comes in.
The range now includes our latest system control unit - WES3 CONNECT - which offers enhanced features over the standard bases station including:
- Full 4G connectivity enabling off site communications and designed for REACT
- Large, colour screen with new menus
- Improved ergonomics via a new numerical keypad
This market-leading advanced system has been developed and engineered in-house by Ramtech to provide a simple, fast and secure method of communicating fire and medical emergencies in the complex environmental conditions of construction sites. WES3 comes with a market-leading two-year warranty.
WES3 - Key Benefits
Raise the alert from any point in the network to the base station. It also links to our cloud-based REACT system.
Optional inspection delay
Enables site managers to establish whether a false alarm has been raised. It can also be used to undertake a staged evacuation process.
Turn off the alarm sounder on other stations and enable a lower level alert to indicate there is an issue without triggering a full evacuation.
Full isolation system test mode
Test individual alarm points without the need to trigger the entire system.
WES3 is proudly designed and manufactured by us in Britain to various specifications and is used on multiple sites around the world.
The WES system has become established as the system of choice for many industrial applications across the globe, from schools to museums, power stations to rail depots. If you need a wireless alarm for fire or evacuation, then WES3 is the pinnacle.
WES3 combines ease of use, system reliability and the highest level of third-party certification.
The units that make up the WES3 system can be deployed as soon as the build is out of the ground. Setup is quick and easy – it takes just a few minutes for your units to be a network, on active duty protecting your site and workers.
Units are placed in accordance with your fire plan – usually at each stairwell or lift shaft – and can be added as the build progresses. Units can be numbered according to your fire plan for easy identification in the event of any issues. Heat, smoke or unique dust resistant smoke sensors provide active evacuation protection in enclosed areas.
