Installing hearing loops under a commercial carpet

Some venues require the loop wire to be installed under carpet. This featured project is Immanuel Lutheran Church, Marshfield WI.

The vast majority of commercial carpet can be cut, peeled back, loop wire installed, and put right back together. This particular venue had unitary backed carpet, which offers no mesh back. At the recommendation of the carpet installer, the church decided to use this as an opportunity to upgrade the look at the same time the loop system was installed. The center aisle and front platform were carpeted in a complementary carpet, and a 12 inch border was installed. Also, wire and border carpet was installed under seating rows 1, 4, 7, 10 and 13. The result was an amazing looking project, with an excellent phased array hearing loop in the entire sanctuary floor. If cutting carpet is stopping you from installing a hearing loop, please reconsider. With the assistance of a carpet pro, loops can be installed under the vast majority of commercial carpet with no issues. This project started Sunday afternoon and was complete on by noon on Wednesday. The church provided volunteer labor for moving benches and other furniture.  Contact us with your questions.
