Induction loop systems are now being installed in cathedrals, churches, theatres, auditoriums, banks and many other venues. People now have a clear way of hearing a service, performance or when a person is speaking to them. This is all supplied to them from their own personal hearing aid.
The Disability Act has increased public awareness to the needs of those with impaired hearing. It is also now very common for new buildings to have cabling for induction loop systems, incorporated into the design. Then installed at the first fix stage. Anyone with a hearing impairment can now enjoy good hearing in many public places.
What are Induction Loop Systems?
Induction loop systems are essentially the creation of a magnetic field. The system transmits an audio signal directly into a hearing aid, via this magnetic field. Ultimately, greatly reducing background noise, competing sounds, reverberation and other acoustic distortions that reduce clarity of sound.
It is crucial that the type and gauge of cable is correctly calculated and allied for the correct amplifier. In addition, the nature of building construction can have a dramatic effect on system performance.
Hearing Loop Systems
If a hearing loop system is not correctly designed, the induction loop signal strength may be insufficient to cover the designated area. Resulting in an unsatisfactory or unusable product.
