This unit is designed to accept any Beacon that mounts to a 1/2" nipple. The diameter of the beacon can not exceed 6".
Two suggested sources for Fire rated beacons are Tomar (model 500P) and CooperWheelock (model MAX). Both have 1/2 inch threaded bases and come in a variety of colors and voltages.

The unit is weather proof and corrosion resistant.
