Be Heard When Moving Backwards

Working in the material handling and equipment industry is full of risks related to limited visibility, distracted pedestrians, and a loud work environment. Being heard when operating equipment is a very important safety measure, and TVH offers multiple backup alarms for a variety of makes and models. To be most effective, backup alarms need to be around 10 decibels above the ambient noise level of the surrounding area. TVH carries a large range of backup alarms ranging from 77dB to 117dB.

The STA20502 is one of our most popular and cost effective backup alarms. With a decibel level of 97, this backup alarm is loud enough to handle most common warehouse environments. We also have self-adjusting alarms with a dB range from 82-107, like the STA20154A. This backup alarm listens to the ambient noise level using a built in microphone and automatically adjusts its sound output to be louder than the surrounding noise level. Sometimes a backup alarm needs to do double duty. TVH carries multi-function alarms, like the STA35702D, that when added on a forklift, has the ability to have two tones: (1) the normal backup alarm tone and (2), a separate tone that is emitted when the forks are being raised up on the machine. These alarms provide extra safety measures for the operators and pedestrians nearby.

Safety is always a top priority for us at TVH. While having a backup alarm by itself is a good safety measure, we recommend pairing them with backup lights, sensors, and strobes to maximize safety. TVH is your one-stop-shop for backup alarms, contact your sales representative for all your safety accessory needs today.
