Glaz Arena Rennes, France

The Glaz Arena in Rennes is home to the local handball team, but also serves as a venue for various events – from dance performances to trade fairs to concerts.

The sports arena offers space for up to 4500 spectators. In addition to the main and side halls, there is an attached fitness studio, three VIP lounges and a 930 m2 lobby.

The VX-3000 system from TOA was chosen for integration of their sound and voice alarm requirements into a single system. The voice alarm system uses EN54-certified loudspeakers, more precisely a mix of SC-630M-EBQ, HX-5, PC-2369EN and PE-154EN. 29x HX-7B and 10x FB-150B were installed and integrated with the existing equipment to provide full coverage. In particular, they needed to set up an evacuation system in accordance with industry standards. A minimum of 102dB sound pressure was required for the acoustic irradiation, which should evenly irradiate the surface – with an explicit focus on the transmission of low frequencies.
