Door entry loops from Contacta Systems ensure safety of hard-of-hearing visitors

Assistive listening specialist Contacta Systems has launched door entry hearing loops offering clear communication at secure entrances for those with hearing loss.

The IL-EL42 PB and IL-EL42 PF offer clarity of sound for wearers of hearing aids and other assistive listening devices. The loops can also be installed in fire evacuation systems, at Help Desks and information points, self-service kiosks, ticket machines and emergency refuge points, thereby enhancing safety and accessibility.

The units come in a surface-mounted or flush option and accept input signals from a wide range of sound sources including line out signals, low voltage loudspeaker outputs, VoIP, intercoms and PA systems.

The IL-EL42 also features automatic gain control and low power consumption. With an all-new design and powerful antenna, they offer stronger coverage and a sleeker appearance than their predecessor.

The units have been fitted with a built-in driver in the cabinet, hosted in a newly-designed weather-resistant plastic casing with flexible installation directions. Both units are currently being tested to comply with the IP55 rating.

“These loops were developed in response to demand from our customer base,” said Ran Meyrav, head of business development at Contacta Systems. “As is the case with everything we design, high performance and ease of use have been the key considerations. Safety and communication with potential customers or visitors should never be compromised.”

These are the latest products to be added to the Kent-based company’s range, which includes secure storage and transfer units, assistive listening solutions and queue management solutions.
