We have been installing induction loop systems to meet the needs of the hearing impaired for many years. From simple a loop pad system to allow someone to hear the TV correctly, to cross counter applications at reception desks and larger systems in lecture halls and churches, we can advise on the best approach and provide a solution to meet your requirements should you be considering having such a system installed.
Since the passing of the Disability Discrimination Act (DDA) in 2004, making it an offence to discriminate against someone because of a physical disability, it is important that businesses ensure that they have made all reasonable adjustments to their premises.
The installation of an induction loop to accommodate the needs of the hearing impaired can help.
A hearing loop is a cable connected to an amplifier that surrounds an area. Inside the loop, those wearing a hearing aid switched to the “T” setting can hear he output from a connected sound source such as a microphone or television
The advantage is that this allows the sound source to be heard directly by the hearing aid user without all the general background noise that may exist within a room. Receivers can also be used with an induction loop for anyone who does not have a suitable hearing aid.
