Induction Loops

Induction loop systems are becoming more and more common throughout businesses, especially those that have dealings with the public, and in many cases these are a statutory requirement.

An induction loop system comprises an input source, such as a microphone, connected to an amplifier, which is in turn connected to a loop of cable. The loop of cable radiates an electro-magnetic field which can be picked up on the hearing aids used by the hard of hearing when they switch their hearing aid to the 'T' position. Induction loop systems can be complex and numerous external factors can influence their performance.

With the implementation of the DDA (Disability Discrimination Act) they became an essential part of the buildings communication systems and now the Equality Act further enforces these requirements.

BS7594:2011 is the Code of Practice for audio-frequency induction-loop systems (AFILS Systems), commonly known as Induction Loops, Hearing Loops or Deaf Loops.

BS7594:2011 replaces BS7594:1993 and provides clarification to the existing BS EN 60118-4:2006 Electroacoustics - Hearing aids (Induction loop systems for hearing aid purposes standard). This relates specifically to the correct deployment, usage and maintenance of induction loop systems in the UK.

Induction Loop systems should also conform to the UK Equality Act 2010 (incorporating DDA Act 1995), Building Regulations Part M1 : Access to and use of buildings (2004), The Care Standards Act (2000) and BS 8300 (2009).
