Mass notification wide area sound signals

Kahlenberg designs and manufactures powerful acoustically optimised air horns in omni-directional arrays for 360 degree sound coverage. This makes them perfect for evacuation signalling, wide area warning and mass notification systems and a good replacement for large siren systems. Rance capability runs right up to 16km / 10 miles, with smaller models available to suit all applications.

Kahlenberg mass notification signals can be supplied as base horns, or heated to enable operation down to –40°C. They are extremely rugged and offer long service and low maintenance when used in a variety of applications including quarries, chemical plants, refineries, open pit mines, coal yards  and industrial facilities as well as in public spaces such as campuses and golf courses for general warning, lightning warning, fire alarm and evacuation.

Standalone custom built wireless remote controlled evacuation and warning systems are also available. Please contact us for further information.

Up to 1.5km / 0.9 mile radius

Kahlenberg offers an extremely compact wide area notification signal for this radius of operation. The CA-4 is extremely rugged and suitable for indoor and outdoor applications.
