Storm Safety Whistle
The Storm Whistle is the loudest whistle on the market but is substantially larger than the Fox 40, or other survival and signal whistles. Its unique design allows it to be heard under water and over long distances. The Storm Whistle is perfect for any situation where you must be heard. The Storm Whistle creates a clear, high frequency sound, with a power rating over 75% greater than other referee and safety whistles. It is currently in use by numerous federal and law enforcement agencies, rescue organizations and sports officials. A survival whistle, like the Storm Whistle, is an all to often forgotten piece of necessary survival equipment. The Storm Whistle by the All Weather Safety Whistle Company is a low cost piece of insurance that should not be overlooked. Our version is international orange in color. At 130 db, The Storm Whistle is twice as loud as any other mouth blown whistle in the world. However, it is not as compact as many. Initial testing was conducted by the Hearing Conservation Programs Inc., who tested the decibel rating of various military, sports and survival whistles against the Storm whistle. These first tests were performed in a sound proof booth at a distance of 15 feet with the whistle being blown by mouth, and had a number of variables, such as the person blowing the whistle and the accuracy of the sound level devices. The second set of tests, conducted by the Central Institute for the Deaf, were performed in open air at a distance of 15 feet, 25 feet and 50 feet. Here the whistles were attached to a constant air source which was adjusted to the normal blowing strength typically generated by the mouth. The sound the whistles made was then analyzed by computer, using a double blind technique, detailing the amplitude and signature of the sound created. With a standard whistle, nonproductive high frequency (over 5000 hertz) and nonproductive low frequency (below 2000 hertz) sounds are created. Because of the patented harmonic chamber that is unique to the Storm whistle, these high and low frequency sounds are recycled and focused into our extremely loud single 3150 hertz frequency of double the standard amplitude. The focused 3150 hertz frequency was generated intentionally in accordance with government recommendations that showed that the 3150 hertz tone is the most readily heard over the noise of motors, crowds, and explosions. In all these cases, test results showed the Storm whistle as being twice as loud as the other whistles.
