The Ani-Mate® animal friendly sounder uses a specifically developed low frequency tone (sub 400 Hz) that is designed to minimise discomfort to animals.
The Ani-Mate® is designed to conform to the ‘silent’ fire alarm. The ‘silent’ fire alarm(1) was developed because of the need for an effective alarm signal in laboratory animal facilities which did not stress the animals every time it was tested.
Small mammals in particular can be distressed by the frequency of tones emitted by standard electronic sounders and bells. It is only by using a conventional cone loudspeaker that pure low frequencies can be reproduced and thus disturbance to animals be minimised.
Ani-Mate® Weatherproof animal-friendly sounderAvailable as either an internal model housed in an attractive white painted metal enclosure or as an outdoor weatherproof unit in a grey IP66 enclosure, the Ani-Mate® gives excellent sound output with a wide range volume control.
As a 24 V dc unit, the Ani-Mate® is easily interfaced with the existing fire alarm system
Whilst the Ani-Mate® can be used as a simple replacement for traditional sounders and bells, it can also be used as a voice sounder (although not compatible with the Fire-Cryer® range of voice sounders).
