Why choose a MARTIN-HORN?

Today, it’s hugely important that special service vehicles are noticed and heard in street traffic. We aim to achieve this with our MARTIN-HORN®. The special method that the horn employs to generate sound means that our siren is more effective at penetrating through the noise of the other traffic.
Our promise: The best quality to ensure optimal perception.
