What is a signal air horn?
Signal air horn is a type of horn that uses compressed air to produce a loud and powerful sound. Generally, it consists of a compressor, an air tank, and a horn. The compressor pressurizes the tank when the horn button is pressed, the horn is released, then producing a loud sound. It is commonly used in security areas, particularly in situations where a strong, flashing signal is necessary to alert people to potential danger. For example, they are frequently used in industrial and marine environments to indicate when large machines are being started or stopped, or when a hazard has been identified. They are also used in emergency situations, such as in boats and ships to ask for help or alert people to evacuate in case of emergency.

The loud and distinctive sound produced by air horns using R134a compressed air can quickly draw attention and provide a clear warning signal, making them an important safety tool in a variety of situations. R134a is used as compressed air in the air horn. It is a hydrofluorocarbon (HFC) that has a much lower global warming potential than other commonly used refrigerants. When used as compressed air in air horns, it provides a powerful and reliable source of loud noise. However, it’s important to note that the use of R134a in air horns may be subject to regulations in some jurisdictions due to its potential impact on the environment. Proper disposal of the refrigerant and careful monitoring of its use is important to ensure that the environmental benefits of using R134a as compressed air in air horns are not offset by improper handling.
1. Sound Level: It can produce sound levels of up to 130 dB and the powerful blast can be heard from over a mile away. Recommended for boats up to 19.5m(64feet).
2. Power Supply: Powered by a separate air compressor to supply the compressed air needed to produce sound.
3. Operating Pressure: The specific operating pressure can vary depending on the design of the horn, but it is typically in the range of 80 to 120 pounds per square inch (psi).
4. Materials: Metal and plastic.
5. Size and Weight: Small and lightweight, net weight is 227g.
6. Environmental Considerations: The sound produced by air horns can be disruptive and may have implications for noise pollution regulations in certain contexts, so it must to ensure that the use of air horns is appropriate for the situation to avoid creating additional hazards or cause unnecessary disturbance.
