  • Company History

    KAC was founded in 1972 and has manufactured over 35 million call points over the last 40 plus years.

    As pioneers of emergency evacuation safety, we innovated the modern “break glass” device concept, revolutionising the industry and creating the platform now used by all manufacturers. Since then, we have consistently set the bar for call point and AV safety product innovation.

    Our ethos is to not only meet market needs, but set the industry standard for call point and AV product innovation, and this is a commitment we have honored for over 40 years.


    We started as a one man operation and have grown into an international business, employing 170 people at our state of the art manufacturing facility in Redditch.

NEW VAD Selection Guide

To help identify your Visual Alarm Device (VAD) requirements in line with the new EN54-23 standard, we have developed an easy to use online device selection guide. Simply enter the room dimensions and ambient light conditions and the tool will help you estimate the number of VADs required for your space.


The new consolidated guide includes both conventional (ENscape) and intelligent AV devices. The guide has been consolidated to provide a one stop shop for VAD selection and to improve usability in line with new web standards. It replaces the previous ENscape online guide and uses the same intuitive functionality.
