If YES, please fill out the following survey to assist in compiling a list of manufacturers that can assist during this time.

High-Demand Products Survey

  • Acoustic Loop Innovations, Long Island company, offers 2-Way Talker Shields

Acoustic Loop Innobations has joined forces with Audio Directions (the designer of the shield) to offer this specially designed shield that offers:
1. Protection against exposure and transmission of the COVID19 virus as well as other infectious diseases
2. A shield that allows individuals on either side of the shield (customers and workers) to be able to hear information that is clear and loud enough providing effective communication
3. The shield is equipped with a special induction loop system (hearing loop) that is the only system available for individuals with hearing loss that use hearing devices that contain a telecoil. This telecoil allows the person to simply turn their hearing device (hearing aid) to the telecoil program and they are in the loop which provides speech that is clear with all background noise and other distractions eliminated.  In light of the fact that everyone is required to wear a face mask and to social distance,  it is even more difficult if not impossible for a hearing impaired individual to hear another person speaking to them when being blocked by a barrier.  This shield solves the problem ensuring that a message is heard correctly.
See spec sheet HERE with more information. 
Audiologists, engineers and installers are available to answer all questions about the 2 Way Talker Shield
