Alarm Bells

Nylube's alarm bells are the industry standard for a reason. Actually several reasons: Universal Mounting, Superior Quality, Great Value, and a very low current draw. That means less draw on the power supply and more time to signal an emergency. When used with Nylube's Emergency Lights, it is possible to use two Nylube Alarm Bells and still be capable of meeting the code required ringing duration.
