In previous posts we have looked at the benefits of owning a Personal Alarm, particularly with our focus on Darker Nights Security over the winter.
Advertisements for Personal Alarms will often cite the decibels (dBs) of the siren as a big selling point, with most units measuring around the 130dBs mark. But just how loud is this? Check out our handy comparison guide below!
A pin dropping.
Toilet flushing, vacuum cleaner, alarm clock.
Lawn mower, food blender, farm tractor.
Handheld drill, chainsaw, thunderclap.
Air raid siren, Defender Personal Alarms.
Jet taking off, shotgun fired.
As you can see from the above, the typical 130-140 dBs siren range on Personal Alarms ranks them above chainsaws and alongside air raid sirens in terms of volume! Certainly loud enough to shock, disorientate and discourage a potential attacker!
