21 Sep Enhancing Accessibility: Installing a Contacta Large Area Hearing Loop
In an (exclusive!) behind the scenes installation video, specialist engineer James Graves works his magic setting up Contacta’s large area hearing loop system with a V Series driver.
This installation showcases Contacta’s dedication to making public spaces accessible to individuals with hearing loss.
Watch James in action as he transforms a communal space within a Cambridge City Council sheltered housing complex. This installation provides a sneak peek into the meticulous process of enhancing accessibility, from carefully laying the loop cable to precisely placing the signage so residents and visitors with hearing loss always know they can use the system.
Contacta’s technology seamlessly integrates with buildings to ensure accessibility for all.
BS 8300: Setting the Standard for Accessibility
James’ installation is completed in line with the BS 8300 industry standard. This code of practice, a cornerstone in the pursuit of inclusivity, provides comprehensive guidelines for creating accessibility for disabled people.
By incorporating revisions to BS 8300 that specifically detail meeting the needs of those with hearing loss, Contacta ensures clarity and excellence in hearing loop provision and installation.
The V7 V Series driver was selected by James due to its versatile features and robust design. Its ability to provide a perimeter hearing loop in spaces like common rooms or meeting areas ensures that residents with hearing loss can fully participate in activities and discussions. Its automatic gain control ensures that audio quality remains optimal, with a Class-D amplifier output stage and an audio subsystem built around an advanced DSP core.
