At 90 decibels the alarm clock is louder than most lawnmowers and matches the volume pumped out by a speeding lorry on a motorway.

Sleepers that are hard of hearing, who find this is not loud enough to wake them up, the clock also comes with a vibrating pad. This can be slipped under the pillow and when the alarm goes off the clock sends a wireless signal to the pad, which starts to vibrate.

The amplicom TLC 200 is available on specialist websites for those with hearing difficulties, including, and It costs about £40.

Harry Moss, chairman of Amplicom, admitted that the clock might not make people popular with their neighbours. "If the person living next door doesn't have hearing problems – they may be waking up with you."

The company said it was confident it was louder than anything else on the market, either in Britain or America.

The clock needs to be powered by the adaptor, but it comes with built-in rechargeable batteries to keep the alarm and clock going for a limited time in circumstances of a power cut. Customers can also hook it up to a telephone to amplify the ring sound.

The market for mobile phones, door bells and televisions designed especially for those who are hard of hearing has been increasing in recent years.
