Infrared conference equipmentPoole Lifting Bridge

Poole lifting bridge was built in 1926. At the time, it was regarded as a state-of-the-art engineering solution to the challenge of providing a road link across a busy shipping channel in Poole harbour and is still in use today. It has 7 time-tabled lifts a day and another 10 unscheduled lifts for commercial boats.

Sound Advice refurbished the external Public Address system that provides advice and warning to road users and Mariners alike. One of the microphones is located in the Port Office half a kilometre away and can remotely operate the PA via a data link.

Infrared conference equipmentPirelli Cables, Southampton

Pirelli Cables in Southampton manufacture fibre optic cable in the lower building and then draw the fibres out in the tall ''draw tower''. Due to the highly toxic chemicals used, gas sniffers constantly check for high level of fumes. If the toxic level becomes too high, a pre recorded message is broadcast over the PA to advise all members of staff. The PA provides emergency evacuation facilities as well as site wide PA and technicians intercom.

The Hebridean Spirit is a luxury (£4,500 per week) cruise ship and, during a recent re-fit, it was decided to replace the Public Address System.

The refurbishment involved our engineers visiting the ship in Tallin in Estonia and the main rack install was done in dry dock in Greece.
