Doorbell buzzers such as the DH924 by Thomas & Betts are an extremely loud buzzer that when connected to a doorbell transformer and push button is an excellent door chime system for business, warehouse, or industrial application. The Buzzers featured on this page use a small hammer that strikes the bell to emit the loud ringing sound. We have a four inch bell, a 2 1/2 inch bell, and an enclosed bell.
Similar to the buzzer selection, we also have a selection of traditional bells, or aka "firebells." These are the bells you see in commercial locations, or schools, for example, to notify of an alarm. These products are extremely loud and effective at notifying users.
We also carry some unique products such as a Victorian shopkeepers bell, desk bells, and victorian mechanical doorbells. These elegant products provide nice decorative touches to any bed and breakfast, antique shops, and more.
I mentioned in the introduction how this was one of my favorite categories of products on 1800doorbell.com. That's because I like to tinker with our products and invent new ways to use them for home and businesses alike. There are a couple of unique applications I would love to share with you.
A couple of years ago, a zoo from Minnesota called us. They had a Polar Bear exhibit and was looking for a buzzer of some sort they could use to help train the bear. What they wanted to do was train the bear to leave its room when they needed to clean it. The purchased a 2-1/2 inch buzzer, a transformer, and a push button. There was an adjacent room with a door that connected the temporary room they wanted to more the bear to and the bear's living quarters. After putting a plate of food in a temporary room, they would open to the door and immediately hit the buzzer. After a few sessions, the bear learned when he heard the buzzer there would be food in the other room. Now, when they need to clean the bear's living quarters, all they have to do is sound the buzzer and the bear will move itself to the other room.
Although not a typical use of the wired buzzers, it shows the versatility of the products. Most of our customers use the buzzers in a commercial environment when they need something louder than your "normal" doorbell. In a warehouse or workshop, the normal "ding-dong" sound produced by a residential chime will often go unnoticed. The buzzers on our site are loud and will not go unnoticed!
For exceptionally loud products, take a look at the three Firebells we carry at 1800doorbell.com. The "FIREBELL" is available in 12V or 24V models, and produce loud 80-85 dB bell sound. The units are outdoor rated when you install them with an approved weatherproof backbox. These are the Firebells approved for use with most Fire Alarm products.
We also carry signal bells manufactured by Milton Electronics. These are the signal bells used by dry cleaning facilities and gas stations to receive a notice when a car enters the area.
Finally, we are proud to carry the SS40 Victorian Desk Bell, the DH945 Victorian Shop Bell, and the DH950 Mechanical Doorbell. These solid brass products harken to the days of old with a touch of elegance and nostalgia they add to any room.
