Kumasi City has the largest market in West Africa, with more than 10,000 stores and outdoor stalls. To improve traffic flow and people access, in 2015 the construction of a new modern building began in Kejetia area, intended for housing shops that traditionally offered their products on the street.
LDA Audio Tech has manufactured the EN-54 public address and voice alarm systems installed on this market. One of this project’s great challenges was to offer maximum intelligibility in different environments (closed, semi-open and large areas) to guarantee the safety of buyers and merchants in case of emergency, and taking into account the huge crowds in the market.
To achieve that, the installation was equipped with NEO and NEO Extension solutions supervised by the NEO Control application and complemented with accessories such as VAP-1 voice alarm panels with expansion keyboards, MPS-8Z multizone microphones, ZES-22 digital matrices, RCD-21R multifunction dual players, batteries and EN 54-4 chargers. More than 500 EN 54-24 certified loudspeakers have been installed in the entire market, providing the cleanest sound in noisy environments.
