Vimpex helps protect global manufacturing firm

Great Wakering, Essex

The unique hinged design enables the Clambell to swing shut after installation, resulting in a quick install operation.

Vimpex’s innovative new Clambell fire alarm bell has been chosen by a leading, global supplier of modular and skid mounted solutions to be fitted to the outside of the company’s modulars to sound a loud, audible warning in case of fire.

Central 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 “As these modules are often sited in hostile, remote, mountainous areas, Central’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. Clambell’s ‘two minutes to fit’ and 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 types of bells. With no central bolt, the Clambell can be fitted in a matter of minutes. All installers need to do is fit the Clamvell to the wall, wire it to the circuit and then click it shut.

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.

According to Vimpex, the careful design and manufacturing means that 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.
