The Ani-Mate® animal friendly sounder uses a specifically developed low frequency tone (sub 400 Hz) that is designed to minimise discomfort to animals. The Ani-Mate® is designed to conform to the ‘silent’ fire alarm. The ‘silent’ fire alarm(1) was developed because of the need for an effective alarm signal in laboratory animal facilities which did not stress the animals every time it was tested. Small mammals in particular can be distressed by the frequency of tones emitted by standard electronic sounders and bells. It is only by using a conventional cone loudspeaker that pure low frequencies can be reproduced and thus disturbance to animals be minimised.
This compact 105dBA Security Sounder is designed as a stand alone unit for internal use. The unit is also capable of operating in an external protected environment such as polycarbonate bell boxes. The unit is surface mounted and is able to utilise square trunking.
