Auditory alarms, whether activated by heat, smoke, or toxic fumes, warn of imminent danger by sound. For customers or employes who are Deaf or have hearing loss, these life saving emergency notification measures fail completely. Systems that incorporate high-intensity flash/strobe lights that are strong enough to attract attention are essential to the safety of your customers or employees who may be deaf, oral deaf, deafened, or hard of hearing.

In-house Emergency Paging System

A wireless paging system, connected to your fire panel, immediately notifies users of emergency situations via a vibrating pager, or by sending a text message to LCD displays placed throughout your facility, keeping everyone in your place of business aware of emergency alerts.

Please speak to one of our Consultants for other solutions that may work for you.

Assistive listening systems include FM, Infrared or loop systems. They are designed to connect the sound from the main speaker, sound system or other audio source and send the signal directly to wireless receivers worn by people with a hearing loss. The receivers allow individuals to adjust the volume to a comfortable level and can be used with a variety of headsets, including neckloop listening accessories for those with telecoil equipped hearing aids. Assistive Listening systems help to reduce background noise and compensate for poor room acoustics or distance from the sound source. Assistive Listening Systems can be portable and/or permanently installed and are recommended for all meeting assemblies where people with a hearing loss are present including; tours, lectures, small to large meeting venues, classrooms, places of worship, courtrooms, and theatres.

Soundfield systems are portable sound systems which clearly amplify a presenters/teachers voice. Consisting of one or more microphones and one or more loudspeakers, Soundfield Systems provide even sound coverage within a room.

In the classroom, hearing is essential for learning. In meeting rooms, presentations are lost if they are not audible. Soundfield Systems provide the amplification you need, when you need it. It is the most flexible amplification solution for classrooms, boardrooms, nursing homes and small to mid-sized meeting rooms.

TORONTO, ON – To celebrate National Disability Employment Awareness Month, the Canadian Hearing Society (CHS) is recognizing the contributions of Canadians who are Deaf or hard of hearing and issuing a call to action for employers.

“Employers across Canada can do more to support Canadians who are Deaf and hard of hearing,” says Gary Malkowski, VP of Stakeholder and Employer Relations at CHS. “Individuals who have the skills, the education and the ability also have the right to the same employment opportunities as those who are hearing with similar qualifications.”
