From audible and visual devices to a combination of both, safety is not one size fits all. For example, horns and strobes are necessary in order to alert workers to machine failure, gas accumulation and other hazards, but they are only effective if they are bright enough to be seen and loud enough to be heard. For this reason, it’s vital to know the ambient and maximum sound level to determine which decibel level is needed for each area in your facility.
Signaling devices need to be properly sized for the type of event that it is meant to communicate in order to protect your employees. While there are a variety of signaling manufacturers, Pfannenberg’s spatial dimension, part of their 3-Dimensional signaling concept, sets them apart. Pfannenberg audible and visual signaling devices can cover a larger area per device, allowing for significant cost savings in total cost of ownership to the end-user.
