Public Warning and COMAH Alarms

The most effective way of alerting vast amounts of people to potential accident hazards is with the use of mass notification systems, which have been purposefully designed to provide operators the capability to inform thousands of people, all at the push of a single button.

These systems have been effectively utilised on sites such as Petrochemical plants and water treatment centres. With 2CL’s knowledge of two-way radio and our partnership with Whelen, we are capable of providing a COMAH mass notification and public warning system, which can be linked to your existing radio system, to ensure your compliance with COMAH guidelines.

Whelen Mass Notification Systems

Working with Whelen’s UK distributor, we are one of the UK’s leading installers of Whelen Mass Notification systems. These are the large loudspeaker systems used in COMAH (Control of Major Accident Hazards) alarms where there is a requirement to notify a large area of a hazardous situation.

2CL has installed and maintains a number of major incident alarms across the UK, predominantly for the Petrochemical and manufacturing industries. The Whelen products that we offer are reliable, tried and tested solutions that are used worldwide. Customers also benefit from our experience as one of Motorola’s leading two-way radio distributors. Two-way radios are a very popular and beneficial aspect of these systems; they are often used to activate the alarms when the use of a line connection is difficult or expensive.
