The primary function of a fire bell is to alarm people who are at risk to take the necessary precautionary safety and evacuation measures.
Fire bells are relatively loud with a decibel range of about 90. With the recommendation by the NFPA they were also designed to produce a specific and unique sound pattern with the intention of eliminating confusion to successfully warn for hazards. The fire alarm bell is but one aspect of a complete fire protection system.
A fire warning beacon is a flashing light that visually warns for a fire hazard that gets connected to a fire detection system. It is usually installed in conjunction with an alarm or fire bell that audibly warns for that hazard.
Installation is made faster and simpler thanks to the TimeSaver base which simply ‘twists’ and ‘clicks’ into the beacon head. Our beacons can come equipped with a shallow base or deep base where the shallow base is standard and the deep base is designed to be weatherproof allowing for use indoors or outdoors.
The LED beacon is a general purpose beacon that can be used for fire alarms, security systems or industrial applications. LED lights generally have a low power requirement.
The Xenon beacon is a general purpose beacon that can be used for fire alarms, security systems or industrial applications. Xenon lights generally have a long lifespan and shines very bright.
The sounder beacon is a general purpose beacon that can be used for fire alarms, security systems or industrial applications and comes equipped with a built-in alarm capable of 32 different tones. The sounder and the beacon are linked and work together eliminating the need for a wired link during installation.
