Sonant electric actuators

Sonant™ electro-mechanical clappers and hammers are available in a variety of mounting configurations for internal, external, swinging bell applications. Sonant products are manufactured to Chime Master's quality specifications for long term reliability, durability, and easy installation.

Stationary bells can have either outside tolling hammers or inside clappers. The electro-mechanical and physics aspects of this choice generally is made on the basis of how loud the bell is intended to ring. Gravity favors outside hammers helping the power of the striking of the bell. Gravity works against inside clappers resulting in a softer tone.

A large selection of head weights and electromagnetic power are available. We will size your clapper or hammer based on the weight of your bell and the intended ringing purpose, music or tolling.
