The marine environment is known for its harshness. Surface finishes are attacked by salt air and sea spray. Despite careful cleaning and polishing, finishes can eventually deteriorate to the point of needing refurbishment.
The restoration process is not just a matter of re-chroming. To ensure your Kahlenberg boat or superyacht horn is restored to its original as new state the horn is dismantled and re-manufactured in its entirety, before final testing in an anechoic chamber and the issuing a new certificate proving IMO compliance.
Kahlenberg UK is pleased to announce the publication of a case study featuring the retrofit installation of Kahlenberg D-0A marine air horns and a M-485A sound signal timer to the Princess 50 MkII Tallulah.
Brian and Dawne Dunton are the boat's very discerning owners and they chose a set of Kahlenberg D-0A marine air horns controlled by an M-485A automatic sound signal timer in order to retrofit a sound signal that could significantly boost their presence in fog when passagemaking across the English Channel to Jersey, Guernsey and North Brittany waters. The installation was powered by a compact Kahlenberg P449-18 compressor.
Marine air horns for boats up to 20m
Marine air horns for vessels 75m-200m
Marine air horns for vessels over 200m
The Kahlenberg D-330 provides a fully IMO compliant ABS type approved twin trumpet sound signal in an economic and compact package suitable for use on vessels between 20m (65ft) and 75m (246ft). It is particularly suitable where low installation weight is desirable.
The D-330 has been carefully designed in Kahlenberg’s anechoic chamber to provide a consistently powerful and distinctive sound for a minimum of air supply.
