Public Address (PA) / Tannoy
'Lockdown' and Mass Notification
Break and Shift change Tones/Bells
Background Music / Radio (BGM)
Bespoke Applications, Alarms

Factory Public Address (PA), 'Tannoy'

Factory Public Address (PA) and factory 'tannoy' system solutions for industrial, production and warehousing settings. Factories, production and industrial facilities commonly present environments that prove challenging and sometimes a constraint to pa / tannoy coverage and capabilities.
Often large volume areas, with high background / ambient noise levels, call for a considered and experienced approach to system design and installation.

Abletek has designed and installed traditional and IP based factory and industrial pa / tannoy systems for over twelve years.
We are specialist contractors with extensive experience of working within factory, production and industrial environments.
We understand, appreciate and strictly adhere to government and industry quality and safe working practices. Our staff and engineers are trained and experienced individuals, providing a qualified and respectful understanding to local customer policy, eg. protective equipment and clothing, working at height, hot working, ATEX/EX, sanitised / clean / hygiene.

Factory Background Music / Radio (BGM)

Productivity improvement, workforce satisfaction, we are commonly asked to provide background music and/or radio (BGM) within factory production and industrial settings. Centralised selection of source audio and volume levels provides control of noise levels and adherence of specific health and safety policy. Specialist survey & design and speaker selection (acoustic profiling). Advice and support with copyright: Public Licensing - PRS (writers and publishers), PPL (artists and performers).

Factory Break and Shift Change - Tones/Bells

Time and attendance integration or simple timer control of pre-recorded tones, bells or announcement (in fact any recorded wav/mp3 audio). Connected to and through the main system mixer/amplifier to enable timer controlled audio notification to the workforce.

British Sugar - Newark

Premier Foods - Worksop
Food Production
British Sugar Premier Foods
Our customer required a robust, site wide, mass notification voice broadcast solution to provide for centralised voice announcements.

Installation of a large, traditionally amplified solution - high specification included cabling and speakers to meet the challenging and hazardous environment demands.
As one of the UK's largest food manufacturer's, this Premier Foods production site required a background music solution (BGM) within their very noisy factory production areas. Following extensive survey works, we installed a multi-unit amplifier rack with large capacity overhead to ensure low running temperatures and system longevity.
High density installation of full frequency range, music quality loudspeakers. 
This project provided centralised control, which enabled the 'retirement' of a large number of separate local sound systems.
