The Storm® All-Weather Safety Whistle is the loudest whistle on the market. It was carefully designed to produce the most powerful sound waves possible, and can be heard through walls, through glass and through water. This Storm whistle also allows you to be heard up to fifty feet underwater, due to its unique patended sounding chamber forcing out all water when the whistle is blown. Creates a clear, high frequency sound, with a power rating over 75% greater than other referee and safety whistles. Performs in all conditions, in any weather or safety situation: blown and heard on land, up to 1/2 mile. A high-impact, non-corroding thermoplastic protective housing is easy to grasp.
Because of the patented harmonic chamber that is unique to the Storm whistle, it allows to be blown when held right side up or upside down, forcing all water to be purged when the whistle is blown that the high and low frequency sounds are recycled and focused into extremely loud single 3150 hertz frequency of double the standard amplitude (3150 hertz is the most readily heard over the noise of motors, crowds, and explosions). Assure you can be heard clearly above noisy crowds, howling wind and virtually any
competing sound. The Storm Whistle has been standard equipment for every "beat cop" - New York City Police Department since 1988. Today, the Storm whistle is used by dive clubs to organize multidiver events and to signal a fellow diver while underwater. The ability of the Storm whistle to work while wet is even more important for boaters and rescue individuals, as standard whistles will not work if they have been submerged. This is why Navy Rescue boats, hundreds of thousands of boaters, and search and rescue teams across the world demand the power and waterproof nature of the Storm whistles.
Due to high-impact thermoplastic construction and weather-resistant design, this all-weather whistle is ideal for rescue, scuba divers, boaters, campers, hunters, hikers and runners. Storm All-Weather Safety Whistle is part of the Museum of Modern Art’s Permanent Architecture and Design exhibition.
• Easy to grip high-impact thermoplastic construction with keyring, can be easily put into a pocket or purse;
• Responsive - emits the loudest sound with minimum effort, even for someone who is short of breath;
• By utilizing a patented resonance chamber design, enables the whistle to focus its sound like a laser beam and blast a noise twice as loud as any whistle made in the world;
• Extremely loud for personal protection, can be heard clearly above noisy howling wind and virtually any competing sound; it can even be heard as far away as half a mile;
• Due to a patented water purging design, performs in any wet or dry environment, above and below the water;
• Crowd noise or the roar of a loud engine will not overpower the sound.
• Adopted by the US military, police and security forces worldwide.
• Made in USA
About the Manufacturer
In the 1850s, Dr. Hermann von Helmholtz invented the Helmholtz Resonator, a devise that could capture sound waves. Through utilizing the Resonator, Helmholtz discovered that the size of the cavity affected the sound waves. To use a modern-day example, if one throws a tennis ball into a very large room, the ball will simply roll to a stop. Likewise, if the chamber is extremely small, then the tennis ball will be immobile. However, if the room is "just right," then the tennis ball will bounce off of the walls in the chamber, rebounding successfully. These principles of sound augmentation and amplification had never been applied to whistles or alarms until Dr. Howard Wright invented the Storm Whistle in 1988. As a matter of fact, Dr. Wright invented the All-Weather whistle for just the reason - a whistle can be used underwater. The ability of the Storm whistle to work while wet is even more important for boaters and rescue individuals, as standard whistles will not work if they have been submerged. This is why NNavy Rescue boats, hundreds of thousands of boaters, and search and rescue teams across the world demand the power and waterproof nature of the Storm and Windstorm whistles. It is used by the US Armed Forces, law enforcement worldwide, a variety of US Government Agencies – when being heard is a matter of life and death.
The Storm Whistle is relied upon by the U.S. Armed Forces, U.S. Coast Guard, U.S. Naval Destroyer, U.S. Aircraft Carrier, U.S. Army Troop Support Avionic Command, Disaster response and various U.S. government agencies, numerous police departments, the Red Cross, numerous organizations and dive rescue companies and NFL Referees.
