Product Details

The Protec 3000/AFS Animal Friendly Fire Alarm Sounder has been specifically designed to be fitted in locations where the use of a standard electronic sounder, or bell, could cause discomfort to dogs, cats and smaller mammals.

Studies have been undertaken which show that the use of special tones (typically in the sub 470Hz frequency region) minimise distress to animals whilst still providing clear notification of an alarm condition to human beings.

This product uses a bespoke tone which has been specifically designed for such a purpose, coupled with low distortion electronics and special transducers to eliminate frequency components above 470Hz.
