Loop Systems

Loop Systems

Loop Systems and Sound Systems have been installed by Location Sound since 1976 and we have extensive experience of both large and small installations. The Induction Loops range from small under-counter systems for Reception desks up to the one fitted in Clifton Cathedral. We have also fitted many Infra Red systems, including all of the conference rooms at National Lottery offices throughout the UK.

The Equality Act (2010) was introduced to ensure that those people with a disability, which includes hearing loss, were catered for in buildings and places with public access.These places include Churches, Village Halls, Banks, Doctors' Surgeries, Offices, Shops, Hotels, Libraries, Museums, Theatres and many more.

Location Sound has extensive experience in the supply and installation of both Audio Frequency Induction Loops and Infrared Systems

Audio Frequency Induction Loop Systems, use a special Induction Loop Amplifier which creates an electro- magnetic field within a specified room, by way of cable which can be fixed within the floor, ceiling void or alongside a dado rail or skirting board. The hearing aid user benefits from the Loop System, by switching their hearing aid to the 'T' position. Speech or music signals are fed into the amplifier and the hearing aid user is able to participate fully, by hearing the intended sounds, rather than a jumble of ambient noise. Operation of the system is very simple - once installed it just needs to be switched on. The only downside with AFILS is the lack of security, as the magnetic radiation can spill outside of the room, depending on the loop current and the thickness of the outside walls of the room. This factor should also be considered when more than one loop is installed in the same building, as the loops can react with each other, particularly in adjoining rooms if not installed correctly. We have installed Loop Systems in all types and sizes of buildings from ticket offices to football stadiums and many churches. Nursing Homes and Residential Care Homes find Induction Loop Systems particularly useful in TV Rooms and Sitting Rooms where the TV sound is often turned up higher and higher by those people with hearing problems. By fitting a Loop System the TV Sound can be clearly heard on the individual hearing aid - even if the audible sound is turned down very low. 

Cricklade Town Council - 2021

This Induction Loop System was installed in late 2021, in the Council Chamber to allow hearing aid users to fully participate in Council Meetings. Three suspended Audio-technica ES945 hemispherical microphones, capture conversation from around the meeting room and users switch to 'T' to hear this on their personal hearing aid. A wall mounted Signet-AC Pro7 Digital Loop Amplifier was fitted and the system works superbly.
