Louder, Clearer Communications Product Answering the market request for communication and intelligibility improvements, 3M Scott Fire & Safety introduces the EPIC 3—the smartest, most durable and safest voice amplification communication system in the market.
The EPIC 3 audible and visual operational indications make this system the safest in the market, earning STI scores above .65 and providing louder, clearer and more effective communication than other voice amplifiers in the market. The EPIC 3 best-in-class battery life, at over 50 hours, more than doubles that of the most popular models in the market.
