Much Greater Safety:
- Their Sound is locatable
The location of a broadband sound source is instantly and unambiguously recognizable and reveals immediately which vehicle or machine is backing-up. Narrowband sound is liable to give false directional clues due to reflection off surfaces such as buildings, quarry face etc. sometimes with fatal results.
- Sound is localized within hazard area
Familiarity with unneeded warning alarms outside the hazard area breeds general contempt for them - very dangerous when real need is.
- Audible through Ear Defenders
The lower frequencies of their broad frequency spectrum penetrate ear defenders more readily than the higher frequencies of narrowband alarms.
- End to intentional disconnects
Operators and site workers, driven mad by old narrowband alarms, are very happy to work with broadband and will not disconnect the alarm.
