The ACME Tornado series differs from pea whistles; it contains no pea, and is known as an ‘airfast’ whistle. They lend themselves particularly well to short, sharp blasts where they are most effective. Good lung pressure will get the best performance out of these whistles, and when used correctly they are very good at getting attention. Whistles without a pea have a less variable sound than those whistles that do.
Due to the pealess, plastic design it is a great choice for those operating in freezing conditions or when full of water. In such conditions, the pea can become stuck inside the whistle, and metal whistles can be uncomfortable (in cold conditions). Due to its resilient plastic structure, the Slim Line Tornado is also a fantastic option in aquatic environments and is suitable for kayakers, lifeguards, swimming judges and fishermen alike.
The Airfast whistles by ACME
Plastic airfast whistles such as the Tornado whistle are a favourite among sporting people. They can have a range of volumes and pitches ideal to help coaches and referees avoid confusion on the field especially when multiple whistles are being blown next to each other. This whistle is characterised by its ability to produce an extremely loud and piercing sound that carries well in demanding conditions. Differences in the size and shape of the Tornado models make this possible. You can listen to the different sounds made by the different whistles in the ACME Tornado range online.
