New ClamBell brings innovation

Vimpex’s new ClamBell is a UK manufactured, fire alarm bell with a hinged design that swings shut after installation.

ClamBell is the first newly developed and approved bell to be launched globally in decades and the only fire alarm bell that’s made in Europe. It has been carefully designed to combine core elements of popular existing designs with innovative new features to ensure consistent, reliable and predictable performance.

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. Three mounting options and a choice of European, Asian and US-style backplates make the installation process even easier.

Vimpex MD James Jones says “The company has been involved in selling fire alarm bells for more than 40 years. To be producing our own innovative take on this traditional product is a major achievement for our business. And it’s not just the product itself; a significant amount of thought has been put into the production system to allow us to manufacture at high volumes whilst allowing for future growth in capacity to meet an expanding demand”.

The ClamBell is designed and manufactured in Britain by Vimpex, Europe’s leading independent manufacturer and distributor of fire alarm system components. The company insists on a manufacturing process that produces the best quality fire alarm bell possible, one that looks great cosmetically and sounds pitch-perfect – made possible by the skill and dedication of our UK-based partner foundry.

ClamBell is a truly global product. 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.
