Hearing loops

Induction loop systems (Audio Frequency Induction Loop Systems AFILS) are used to assist the hearing impaired by transmitting amplified sound, music, speech, etc, to hearing aids fitted with a telecoil. (NHS and most other third party hearing aids are fitted with telecoils.) Demand for AFILS is increasing due to new legislation aimed at preventing discrimination against disabled people. (Disbability Discrimination Act)

We can install a hearing loop system in public places such as churches, cinemas and theatres, banks, ticket and information counters and desks. It is even found in the home. In all these cases the T facility on the hearing aid, is used in to listen inductively, which in turn gives the user access to the clear sound provided.

How does it work?

Many hearing aids have a 'T' position which allows them to pick up the electromagnetic field generated by a telephone's earpiece and convert it into a sound suited to an individual's specific hearing requirements. Induction loop systems use this principle but generate a much larger field than that created by a telephone earpiece and radiate it around a room via a 'loop' (usually a single turn of wire) for the benefit of any hearing impaired person(s) located within it

An induction loop system consists of a loop of wire around the edge of an area connected to a special amplifer. The input of the amplifier is connected to a sound source that the hard of hearing users of the area want to hear more clearly. the amplifier drives the audio current (not voltage) through the loop. this current generates a magnetic field in the area enclosed by the wire that a suitably fitted hearing aid can receive. Recent legislation, aimed at improving the quality of life of disabled people, has led to an increased demand for induction loop systems.

In the UK, almost all NHS aids are equipped with a 'T' position, as are many privately sold aids. In the UK private sector, it is often the audiologist who decides whether to offer the loop reception facility, but generally they do offer aids with a 'T' setting. At present, about 95% of hearing aids in the UK are said to have the loop receiving function.

Legislation THE DISABILITY DISCRIMINATION ACT (1995) Is aimed at ending the discrimination many disabled people face and gives them new rights in, among other things, the area of getting goods and services. This initiative which came into effect in October 2004, is aimed at improving the quality of life of disabled people, and has led to an increased demand for induction loop systems. 

New Build Projects

We are constantly involved on new build schemes which have a requirement for an Induction Loop to meet the requirements of the DDA and building regulations. We are happy to advise on the practicality, the suitability and method of installation to suit the construction of the rooms and building.

We tailor systems exactly to meet each requirement selecting from a number of products for different requirements and installation requirements.
