                  Why Use a Back-Up /Reversing Alarm?                

Reversing alarms are one of the most important safety devices needed to minimize accidents and yet, according to the Health and Safety Executive, one quarter of all workplace vehicle accidents are caused by reversing vehicles.

Reversing alarms warn people that a vehicle is maneuvering, especially when they may be in the driver’s blind spot. However tonal reversing alarms cause noise nuisance to local residents and can lead workers to become desensitized.

The revolutionary white sound reversing alarm prevents noise complaints from local residents and is approved for use during night time deliveries. Brigade has an extensive range of reversing alarms and real speech warning alarms to alert pedestrians or drivers of danger.


White Sound reversing alarms (bbs-tek)


White sound is a revolutionary advancement in the field of reversing safety. Unique to Brigade, white sound reversing alarms (bbs-tek) are the safest and yet quietest on the market. The distinct “ssh ssh” sound is less irritating than tonal beeping alarms, preventing workers from becoming desensitized to the warning.

The sound emitted is directional and therefore instantly locatable, enabling pedestrians to work out exactly which vehicle is moving and in which direction, allowing them to move to safety. This makes them the safest option for the visually impaired who may not be able to see the vehicle reversing but will hear the direction it is reversing in.

The wide spectrum of frequencies created, means the hearing impaired are often able to detect some sound, unlike with narrow band tonal alarms. White sound reversing alarms work effectively at lower decibel ratings containing the sound only in the danger area.
