The Importance of Installation Accessories
The installation of warning signals is essential in most industries today. Doing it right makes the device more effective in keeping the workplace safe. Thus, the importance of correct installation can be assisted by utilising proper accessories on each warning device.
Installation Accessories Overview
Installation accessories exist to bring extra care to the warning devices when installed in mounting options. The material must pair with the warning beacon model to deliver the best setup.
These are a vital component of any warning signal that ensures safety in the area. They secure the main device in place even in areas affected by vibrations. As a result, warning signals could offer better operations in the workplace.
Wall Mounting Brackets
This accessory is suitable for both beacons and sounder devices to be mounted on the wall. These right-angled brackets are made up of either UV-stabilised polycarbonate or stainless steel material, and secures warning devices parallel to the wall.
There are several options available, as the mounting brackets vary in size to correspond with the co-ordinated products. One of the available options is the MB15 Pivoting Bracket which allows warning signals to change in directions after installation. The added bolt holds and rotates the device if necessary.
Mounting a beacon is necessary to provide better visibility, and pole mounts can be helpful for this application.
Its height ranges from 250mm to 1000mm which might be seen above any obstacles in the area. Viewing the beacon will be easier from a distance.
Pole mounts are coated in white or black to match your unit. They are out of metal to ensure durability.
The post mount is similar to pole mount but used in a different way. Installation of traffic light units could be better with a post mount, specifically for MIH and IPN units.
A traffic light is never limited to wall mounting with this accessory. It provides flexibility during the installation while placing the signal on a higher surface.
The F060 model is equipped with two straps at the back of the unit to secure the beacon, and is suitable for fixing to a 60mm diameter post, with safety in mind.
These are installed for extra protection over a beacon, to minimise impact or possible damage. Cage guards can be used together with a wall mounting bracket to secure a single beacon.
They are manufactured from stainless steel, and vary in size, to correspond with the different sized products available.
Guards are ideal for industrial environments and in other applications.
Warning beacons promote safety in a numerous amount of different applications, which is why it is imperative that they are installed correctly. With the correct installation, the lifespan of the warning devices is prolonged, thus improving their performance. Installation accessories will also benefit the devices’ maintenance greatly. The cost of repairs and other expenses should be reduced in the future as a result.
Installation accessories are of course, an optional extra. They are extremely useful to ensure ease of fitting, and deliver extra caution in an area.
