Regulations on Mass Notification Systems are Coming to Canada*


• The degrading of the intelligibility of the message can be contributed by large spaces that support reverberant fields, delayed reflections, the difficult ability to focus the sound plus any ambient noise. These types of influences tend to mask the speech consonants which impart the meaning to many words in the English language. Noise is considered any signal that is not part of the original message.

• It is often stated that for a good system response the signal must be up to 25dB louder than the noise. This requires a good focused sound field and high levels of speaker handling power. Levels of this magnitude would probably require some sort of Ambient Noise Control to adjust the sound pressure levels (SPL) to the changing ambient noise.

• For areas that have well behaved acoustics or reverberation of less than 1.5 seconds, consideration is mostly given to ambient noise.
