Fire alarm tones and sounds

From commercial premises to off-shore oil platforms, an acoustic alert is typically the primary method of alarm. Eaton has a library of over 102 industry-standard alerting tones to ensure that your notification is heard every time. On-board Voice alert messages are available in a multitude of languages for Fire evacuation, security or safety.

Loud and Clear. Alerting when life depends on it.

The Fulleon legacy 32 tone table satisfies most commercial environments for Fire notification, staged evacuation or general signalling. Available on the Roshni, Askari, Flashni, CS200, RoLP and Squashni product ranges.

Industrial tone table, used on the Asserta product family, incorporates additional alerts which may be required for heavy manufacturing industries, as well as country-specific tones such as Singapore and the USA.

X10 tone table has 102 tones which cover all commercial, industrial, heavy plant and hazardous area zones. The tones are matched to all leading competitors of industrial sounders allowing the X10 to be retrofitted into an installation.
