“Meeting both audio and life safety needs with a single integrated system saves a lot of money and is architecturally more pleasing. Q-Sys can fulfill both requirements simultaneously.” Roland Hemming, RH Consulting, Tunbridge Wells — United Kingdom Independent Audio and Life Safety Consultant Q-SYS™ FOR LIFE SAFETY DUAL PURPOSE Today’s buildings and facilities are often complex In facilities such as theaters, auditoriums, gymnasiums with full awareness of this fact.
