There are a wide variety of installation accessories available with most sounders and beacons that help to aide greater visibility, makes general maintenance of the unit easier as it is more accessible and provides protection from nearby elements.

Wall Mounted Brackets

Right angled brackets are ideal for fixing to a wall to mount a beacon or sounder parallel to the wall.

Guards

Metal guards can be fitted over a beacon to protect it from many elements; from forklift trucks, falling objects to acts of vandalism. These are particularly useful in industrial environments.
Guards can also be used together with wall mounted brackets.

Pole Mount

Pole mounts are useful for raising a beacon up from the mounting surface for greater visibility. These are particularly useful in areas where you require a beacon to stand above machinery or other obstacles which may affect the viewing of the beacon.
Pole mounts can be used together with wall mounted brackets.

Post Mount

Post mounts are commonly used for traffic light units. These hold the units in place on a post and give greater flexibility on where the traffic light can be mounted rather than just being limited to wall mounting.
