The 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, 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. In the UK it is a legal requirement under the Equality Act 2010 to provide Auxiliary Aids, in the United States it is a requirement under the ADA (Americans With Disabilities Act) and in the United Arab Emirates it is compulsory under the Dubai Universal Design Code.
We don’t just send a box, our Deaf engineers (where available) will attend your premises, install and demonstrate how to use the equipment. We will also provide site training explaining the benefits of a such system. If a Deaf engineer is unable to attend due to geographical reasons, we will arrange this virtually. After all disability access, for us its personal.
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
