Our induction loops and hearing enhancement systems have been designed in collaboration with the industry pioneers Ampetronic and the deaf team at Direct Access (The founder Steven Mifsud MBE and company’s Chief Operating Officer were both born Deaf). Our systems have been brought together by real-lived experiences and the cutting edge industry leader to develop reliable and high quality pieces of assistive technology, delivering equality of access for its users.
Nearly all accessibility audits and access appraisals undertaken by Direct Access identify a requirement for induction loops. It is a requirement under Section 219 of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) which states: Assistive Listening Systems, in summary states:
“in places of public assembly where audible communication is used to provide direction or critical information an assistive listening system is required to be provided for people with hearing loss and in conformance with Appendix L performance requirements“.
All Direct Access Induction Loops comply with the international standard IEC 60118-4. If a hearing loop system complies with this, it guarantees that the following conditions are met:
- The background magnetic noise is sufficiently quiet.
- The magnetic field is strong (loud) enough, but not too strong.
- The frequency response (tone) of the signal is correct for hearing instruments to handle.
We also provide induction loops and hearing enhancement systems for:
i.e. walk and talk systems for guided tours, museums, exhibitions, and education
i.e. sport grounds and leisure venues
i.e. taxis or police cars
Meeting and Training Rooms
Churches and Cathedrals
Classrooms and Lecture Theatres
Rolling Stock and Trains
Stations and Airports
Coaches and Tour Buses
