The sun will then set an hour earlier !

In order to facilitate these changes of hours in companies, in schools, in Establishment receiving public, but also in all interiors…. Orium® offers a pretty and wide range of Radio Controlled clocks. Controlled radio alarm clocks are also available. No more manipulations to undertake!

The exact time to be set to the exact second and on the date will also be done automatically and regularly.

Our sales teams are available for all informations and quotes.
