RECENTLY released in Australia and available through Roylance's P/L , the Brigade backalarm is a new reversing alarm that has already been accepted by the mining and quarry industry.
The backalarm gives an urgent but friendly shh...shh...shh...sound as its warning system, compared to the conventional 'bleep' sound.
The alarm uses broadband sound technology (BBS TEK) which is fully directional and equally effective at 5dB lower than conventional bleepers.
The broadband sound enables people to localise the sound immediately, and has a huge benefit in locations such as quarries, factories, construction sites and built up residential areas that have a low tolerance to machines reversing morning and night.
The sound has been specifically designed to be audible to the human ear, but not as high pitched. The pitch is less irritable to the ear and has proven to be very popular in work areas.
The backalarm also minimises the risk of confusion as to which machine is reversing and also reduces irritation by dissipating more quickly than the conventional bleeper.
The new range on offer covers heavy, medium and light applications.
