Broadband (white sound) alarms are a revolutionary new generation of warning alarm. They are the safest reversing alarms in the world and do not cause a noise nuisance. Already ﬁtted across a range of industries from mobile plant machinery to airport luggage buggies, broadband is fast becoming the reversing alarm of choice. In fact, in New York City, it is the only alarm permitted on construction vehicles.
White sound dissipates quickly meaning the alarm can only be heard in the hazard zone. It also creates a “ssh ssh” sound which is gentler on the ear. The combined effect ensures the warning is treated with respect and prevents workers from becoming desensitised to the sound, tuning it out. It also reduces the likelihood of sabotage from workers disabling alarms.
Beeping tonal alarms can be heard up to thirty times the distance of the hazard zone causing workers to ‘switch off’ due to over-familiarity – putting them gravely at risk. White sound reversing alarms use broadband frequencies. These give greater directional information to the ear allowing the listener to instantly locate where the sound is coming from, and time to take evasive action. White sound also dissipates quickly outside the hazard zone, eliminating noise complaints. Furthermore, with its wide frequency range, white sound alarms can even operate 5-decibels quieter than a tonal alarm, yet still provide the same alerting effect.
