AQORD Systems are specialists in the field of Public Address Systems with the knowledge and expertise to provide a range of services to suit your needs including:
PA Systems (also known traditionally as Tannoys) are sound systems fitted in large buildings that allow speech and/ or music to be heard clearly throughout a specified area. Over the years we have found that no two buildings are the same on an acoustic level so all the systems we install are bespoke PA Systems, designed to suit the needs of each customer and the specifications of each building.
For PA(tannoy) systems we offer a full design and installation package. However, we do recognise the need for cost efficiency; therefore we offer the flexibility to work to your costing or individual terms, whilst sustaining high standards and customer satisfaction at very competitive rates.
Our work complies with BS6259 planning and installation of sound systems regulations, with all work guaranteed for 12 months. Maintenance contracts are also available on request.
The system works in the same way as a remote control on a video or television, i.e. an emitter (the remote handset) sends out an invisible beam of infrared light which individual receivers (the TV), convert into sound via built-in headphones.
These types of system are used in courts due to the security aspect. The signal cannot be heard outside the room unlike an AFILS (Audio Frequency Induction Loop System) that can sometimes be heard several meters outside a room due to overspill. Larger emitters are used in court rooms and theatres. As the size of the room and the amount of people wishing to hear increases, additional emitters and receivers will be required.
There is no loop with an infrared system - this is of particular benefit from an installation aspect where the fabric of the building, a church for example, cannot have cable attached or visible.
Infrared transmissions will not permeate walls, ceilings, or floors. This means that each room has total privacy from any other room.
Since infrared systems are not hampered by multiple frequency problems, a person wearing an infrared receiver in one room can move to another room and use the same receiver unit without switching frequencies or units entirely. You may be familiar with some museum or tour facilities that use infrared systems. As you move from room to room, you automatically hear the presentation specific to the room you are in.
Infrared systems can also be set-up to provide stereo sound. This is especially beneficial in theatre, auditorium facilities, lecture halls or presentation rooms where high quality audio is being produced as a part of a video tape or laser disc.
Infrared headsets have the receiver unit built into the headset, therefore no wire or connector failures can occur.
With the current expansion in public retail and entertainment venues throughout the UK, Voice Evacuation Systems are becoming more popular now than ever before.
Utilising phased voice alert and evacuate to replace fire alarm bells and sounders means no more confusing audio signals broadcast throughout public areas - just clear audible voice announcements to instruct the public as to what to do during emergency situations, therefore saving lives.
These systems are flexible and can be used to not only save lives but also to allow the reproduction of voice paging announcements, background music and advertisements on a zoned or all call basis.
AQORD Systems designs and delivers voice alarm systems. By working with major voice evacuation suppliers such as Baldwin Boxall and Signet AC to supply our equipment, we can guarantee all our systems comply above and beyond the current BS5839 Part 8 British Standards.
