Klaxon EN54-23 Beacons Ensure Notification in a Fire Emergency

Klaxon Signals has developed a new range of fire signalling devices that ensure no one is left behind in a fire emergency.

Sonos Pulse fire beacons and sounder beacons emit a high-brightness pulsating light, complying with the new European standard EN54-23 for visual alarm devices. By using light, Sonos Pulse beacons reach those who may be audibly impaired, or those working in noisy environments, achieving effective evacuation.
sonos_pulse_blog
Pulse Alert Technology disperses light evenly, providing maximum coverage using minimal consumption. Sonos Pulse devices are designed to fulfil evacuation requirements with just a single device for most rooms, reducing costs and increasing energy efficiency. Sonos Pulse devices use the same base connections as previous models; upgrading existing systems to use EN54-23 compliant products is typically a simple process

EN54-23 specifies the minimum performance requirements for visual alarm devices. Klaxon Signals has exceeded these requirements, ensuring all personnel are alerted in a fire emergency. For more information about Sonos Pulse fire beacons and compliance with EN54-23, please visit the company’s new dedicated fire evacuation website at www.klaxonsignals.com/fire or call +44 (0)1706 233879 to speak to an expert.

Halma announces record earnings and strategy for continued expansion

– £100m earmarked for acquisitions –

Halma p.l.c. (www.halma.com), the leading global safety, health and sensor technology group and parent company of Klaxon Signals, has announced record results with profits up 9% to £86m and revenue rising by 1% to £459m. The UK-based group has posted strong financials to raise shareholder dividends by 7%, the thirty-first consecutive year of increases greater than 5%. The company plans to augment its organic growth efforts through acquisition of complementary technology companies, as it has done for many years.

Halma’s subsidiaries operate in three main market sectors: Health and Analysis, Infrastructure Sensors, and Industrial Safety, creating shareholder value with consistent organic growth and sound acquisitions. Halma companies operate as independent entities under the day-to-day direction of their local management, while reaping the capital and network benefits of a larger multi-national parent.

The company is seeking successful and profitable companies that are closely allied to any of its current market sectors, although photonics, water, fluid technology and health optics are a particular focus. It has £100m earmarked for acquisitions.

“In recent months we have increased our acquisition search activity,” said Nigel Trodd, Chief Executive of the Fire & Security Division. “Our experience has been that vendors of good quality businesses are now keener to talk but that many remain cautious about whether to sell now or to wait, in the hope that markets will recover in the medium term. Our task is to convince them that they will achieve even greater success by being part of Halma and to structure deals accordingly. We continue to search for businesses in all of our existing market sectors and in all geographic regions.”

Headquartered in the United Kingdom, Halma is a holding company of approximately 35 worldwide subsidiaries that develop and manufacture products that protect lives and improve quality of life for people worldwide. The company’s business groups focus on industrial safety, health and analysis and infrastructure sensors.

To present potential acquisitions opportunities, please contact:

Industry-Leading Security and Signalling Firms to Merge

Klaxon Signals, a leading provider of a wide range of audio-visual warning devices serving the fire, security and industrial safety markets has announced its decision to merge with Texecom Limited, the UK’s largest native manufacturer of intruder alarm systems.

Both companies are subsidiaries of Halma p.l.c., a FTSE 250 leader in specialist electronic, safety and environmental technologies (LSE:HLMA).

tex0110klaxonmerger_blog

According to Jim Ludwig, Managing Director of Texecom, the merger will enhance the long-term prospects for both businesses. “We’re excited to bring such a ubiquitous brand, and robust product offering into the Texecom family. Texecom’s global reach and strong, large-scale UK-based manufacturing operation offer Klaxon enhanced opportunities to grow and improve operating efficiencies. Likewise, Klaxon’s extensive range of signalling equipment immediately enhances Texecom’s ability to offer our customers a fantastic range of signalling devices for everything from residential installations to wide-area notification for applications like oil and gas, military and municipal warning systems.”

The merger is effective immediately, with the Klaxon Signals name becoming a brand under the Texecom umbrella. The Klaxon operations will be relocated into the two Texecom facilities in Lancashire, in the northwest of England. Employees and key contacts for both businesses will be retained.

New Xenon Beacon Offers Versatility

The latest addition to Klaxon Signals’ Sonos range of fire alarm devices is the 2J Sonos Xenon Beacon, engineered to ensure a flat current and eliminate current surges when the device is switched on. It has a wide operating voltage range of 10-60V DC and its low current consumption makes it ideal for fire alarm applications.

Xenon Beacons

Xenon beacons deliver a greater light output than alternative LED beacons and the 2J Sonos Xenon utilises a full faced, translucent lens rather than a separate add-on beacon, providing a much larger surface area that results in a more effective warning. The beacon’s flash rate can also be selected using a dip switch positioned on the underside of the unit.

The 2J Sonos Xenon Beacon is available with either deep or shallow base options. The base units can be specified in either red or white with a choice of red, amber, clear, blue and green lens colours. For more information about the 2J Sonos Xenon Beacon or other Klaxon products, please visit the company website at www.klaxonsignals.com

Klaxon High Output Sounder Receives French Seal of Approval

Signalling Specialist Klaxon Signals has received NF (Norme Française) Approval for its high output multipurpose Nexus fire alarm.

Multipurpose Nexus Fire Alarm Receives NF Approval

The NF mark is the leading product certification mark in France and guarantees that the standard compliance of the Nexus alarm has been assessed and certified by a third party, the AFNOR*, a world class standardisation, certification and training organisation. This is the first NF approved high output sounder/sounder-beacon in the French fire market. The Nexus is suitable for both commercial and industrial applications. Products in the Nexus range are available as sounders, or sounder-beacons featuring an LED light source and high sound outputs of 105dB and 110dB are available to overcome most levels of background noise. The Nexus alarm is also water and dust proofed to IP66 for heavy industrial or outdoor applications. 

All Nexus connections are made to the base and the head “clicks” into place, ensuring a fast and reliable installation.  Additionally, the head is fixed by quarter turn fasteners rather than four individual screws, resulting in further time saving and also accurate seal compression for weatherproofing.

Klaxon Expands Market with Low Voltage AC Sounder

Klaxon Signals has introduced a low-voltage AC version of the multi-purpose Nexus sounder for use with applications that have a low voltage AC supply.

Low Voltage AC Sounder

In general, low voltage AC signalling products between 24-48V AC are not readily available in the industrial market, so Klaxon’s Low Voltage Nexus can meet the demand and provide signalling for applications including cranes, conveyors, moving machinery and process control alarms.

Products in the Nexus range are available as either a sounder or sounder-beacon with red or amber LED options. The Nexus combines a powerful 110 dB sound output and high efficiency LED beacon to create a powerful audio-visual warning signal. The Low Voltage Nexus is also water and dust proofed to IP66 for heavy industrial or outdoor applications.

All Nexus connections are made to the base and the head “clicks” into place ensuring a fast and reliable installation. Additionally, the head is fixed by quarter turn fasteners rather than four individual screws, saving more time and providing accurate seal compression for weatherproofing.
