Induction loops are recommended in limited situations.  We recommend that the following be considered before committing to installation of an induction loop.

  • Induction loops will only transmit to telecoil enabled hearing aids, which is a small and diminishing portion of the population. Personal receivers, such as a Listener, must be purchased to include the population without telecoil enabled hearing aids.
  • Inductions loops are typically installed under the floor coverings which must be removed and replaced for installation and repairs.
  • Induction loops have simple, automatic connection when in range but are not secure. (People outside the room may connect to the induction loop).
  • Interference can be caused by other loops, metal and electronic equipment.
  • Induction Loops are compliant to BCA D3.7  *Subject to coverage and signage requirements.
