The installation of a Grade 3 Alarm System is mandatory in certain types of businesses and stands out for the high level of protection they offer. From By Demes, the leading distributor of intrusion products in Europe, we will explain what a Grade 3 alarm is, in what type of businesses they should be installed and some of the most relevant technical characteristics. We will also introduce one of the most anticipated releases: the VESTA Grade 3 Hybrid Alarm
What is a Grade 3 alarm?
A certified alarm system in Europe must meet the requirements set by the different UNE Standards that establish the grade and characteristics of its devices. Thus, there are different levels of security:
- Grade 1: low risk
- Grade 2: low-medium risk
- Grade 3: medium-high risk
- Grade 4: high risk
Therefore, a Grade 3 alarm is one that is used in cases of medium / high risk and that complies with the UNE 50132 Standard and the UNE-EN 50131 Standard.
