Brigade Electronics Supports the Quiet Revolution
Brigade Electronics has been awarded the Quiet Mark for its unique white sound reversing alarms (bbs-tek®) which only sound in the immediate danger area, preventing noise nuisance associated with old-style beeping alarms.
Quiet Mark is the international mark of approval from the Noise Abatement Society encouraging companies in the development of noise reduction within the design of everyday appliances. To gain Quiet Mark accreditation, products are compared like for like and are deemed to be quieter than their peers by the Association of Noise Consultants.
White sound reversing alarms are the only reversing alarm to receive the award and work effectively at much lower decibel ratings than old style beeping alarms, which cause a huge noise nuisance to local residents. With white sound alarms the sound is contained in the immediate danger area so you only hear it where it matters, unlike tonal alarms which can be heard at an area thirty times greater than the hazard zone. This prevents workers from becoming desensitised to the warning sound and tuning out or switching them off, making them the safest reversing alarms on the market.
Gloria Elliott, Managing Director, Noise Abatement Society said: “The charity led initiative works with industry to transform living and working environments to become healthier and less stressed. Being able to control the excessive noise in our surroundings should increase our productivity, our creativity and general enjoyment of life. Reversing alarms are a huge cause of noise complaint but bbs-tek® eliminates the noise nuisance without compromising on safety.”
White sound alarms are also approved by the Noise Abatement Society for use during quiet night time deliveries because they do not disturb sleeping residents and are ideal for commercial vehicles operating outside of normal hours during the summer games.
