Protect your people and property with WES3

WES3 is an enhanced wireless evacuation and medical alert system. It provides 24/7 fire detection capabilities to increase safety on worksites – even on unoccupied sites. WES3 provides fast, simple and secure communication. It improves response time for evacuations and medical emergencies in complex environments.

How WES3 works

Early detection is the key to protecting your staff, business and greater community. Air horns and fire extinguishers may not be enough to mitigate a fire before it gets out of control.

You can set WES3 up in 15 minutes and have it distributed throughout the building. Now you have a smoke and fire alarm, security monitor and emergency alert and evacuation system all in one.

You can pair WES3 with the REACT monitoring phone app. This lets you receive real-time information about site emergencies. Mapping capabilities show you the source of the emergency on location. REACT is capable of system check-ins, GPS location tracking and lone worker features. REACT lets your phone becomes a powerful safety tool.

Meet the WES3 family

WES3 is made up of several different types of units for optimum protection. Each unit comes with a three-year battery-powered sensor. All units link into a mesh radio network to communicate with each other.

WES3 Connect and Base Station

Connect and Base Station

Identifies the location of an activated unit for quicker response times.

WES3 dust resistant smoke sensor

Dust-Resistant Smoke Sensor

Detects early signs of fire. Isolates smoke in dusty environments to reduce false alarms.

WES3 heat sensor

Heat Sensor

Identifies dramatic increases in temperature and automatically activates an alarm.

Call Point

Enables manual trigger of site-wide alarm for evacuations or medical alerts.

wes3 interface unit

Interface Unit

Connects WES3 to other systems onsite. For instance, in the event of a fire, the interface unit can be programmed to deactivate turnstiles, putting them in free spin to speed up evacuations.

Cause of fire

There are many causes of fire on construction sites. The leading sources include:

  • heating equipment
  • arson, and
  • hot works including welding, cutting, grinding, soldering and roof work.

This list of average annual statistics depicts the cost for fires in structures that are under construction or major renovation.

the components of the WES3 system.

WES3 highlights our customers rave about:

Improve fire and emergency response:

Real-time alert notifications for fire and medical emergencies.

Medical and evacuation alarm:

Raise an alert from any point in the network to the CONNECT control unit.

Optional inspection delay:

Site manager can determine false alarms and organize fire drills.

Easily connects to existing systems:

Turnstile gate entry systems, door release systems and monitoring equipment/systems.

Remote monitoring:

Monitor the system from anywhere in the world using REACT notification system.

Full isolation system test mode:

Test individual alarm points without triggering the entire system.

Pre-alarm functions:

Create lower-level alerts to issue warnings without triggering a full evacuation.

Simple self-install system:

No wires or cords to install. Place units according to the site’s unique needs.

Built strong:

Full two-year manufacturer warranty and a three-year battery life under normal conditions and usage.

Easy set up that requires no special tools or expertise.

Protection that’s ready when you are.

The units that make up the WES3 system can be deployed as soon as the building 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 stairway and elevator – and can be added as the build progresses. Units can be numbered according to your fire plan for easy identification in the event of an emergency. Heat, smoke and unique dust-resistant sensors provide active evacuation protection in enclosed areas.

Ditch the air horn

Sites across North America still use handheld air horns as a safety device warning of fires and similar incidents. Deploying the WES3 evacuation and emergency system on a job site vs. the air horn has so many advantages. Here are a few:
