ClamBell® helps protect modular data centres

Vimpex’s innovative new ClamBell® fire alarm bell has been chosen by Ireland’s leading, global supplier of Modular and Skid mounted solutions to be fitted to the outside of the company’s modulars to sound an audible warning in case of fire.

Cental Engineering manufactures a range of Electrical, Mechanical, Process and Communications Modules, each uniquely designed to securely house equipment and plant for the Data Centre, Oil & Gas, Utility, Mining and Marine markets. Modules are installed Indoors, Outdoors, Onshore or Offshore often in remote locations, with deployments in Ireland, UK, Europe, Russia, Middle East, Africa and South America.

Jack MacNelis of local installers JMN Fire Alarms Ltd. says “Cental’s requirement was for an extremely reliable and weatherproof external fire bell for its modulars that, in case of a fire, would be loud enough to warn anyone in the vicinity. Innovative product design means it takes two minutes to fit which avoids any delays with completing the projects. These modules are often sited in hostile, remote, mountainous areas, so ClamBell’s rugged durability has proved to be the perfect solution.”

Vimpex’s ClamBell® is an innovative, UK manufactured, fire alarm bell with a unique hinged design that swings shut after installation, which means it’s quick to install, aesthetically pleasing and reassuringly reliable - setting it apart from other fire alarm bells on the market.

Installed in under 2 minutes

The ClamBell’s permanently fitted gong and unique hinged design does away with the long, complicated installation process of other bells. With no central bolt, the ClamBell® can be fitted in a matter of minutes. All installers need to do is fit the ClamBell® to the wall, wire it to the circuit and then click it shut. It really is that easy.

 With three different base types, shallow, deep and waterproof, as well as multiple voltage variations, the ClamBell® meets the needs of the international market and has every installation method covered.

ClamBell® is designed and manufactured in Britain by Vimpex, Europe’s leading independent manufacturer and distributor of fire alarm system components. Thanks to careful design and manufacturing, a single model has simultaneously been approved to EN54 Part 3 by LPCB and is pending UL 464 for the U.S. market. The ClamBell® has also been independently IP tested to IP56 by Intertek, meaning true weatherproof performance.
