Nutone Streamliner


NuTone Skyliner Compact Door Chime 1940

NuTone Skyliner 1940

This is a NuTone Streamliner Catalog number AA-395. The Streamline Moderne movement was inspired by trains and airplanes and automobiles of the day which incorporated reduced air resistance in their design. Wind velocity is of only minor importance to doorbells which are almost always shielded from the elements.

The Streamliner cover was used on a NuTone mechanical chime, the MDK-295.

Industrial designers reflect fashion, as demonstrated in this thoroughly modern and never used NuTone Streamliner in white.
