TV, Satellite & Radio System for the Dementia Care Homes

Over the last couple of years, Local authorities in Cumbria have been building 3 Identical Care Homes across the County catering for the needs of people with Dementia. We have been involved in all three projects from the design stage right through to final commissioning. The brief was to supply TV, Satellite and Radio signals to each bedroom and to various lounges across the site. In total there was 78 points each with a twin cable running back to a central location. A series of Filters, Taps, Splitters and Switches were fitted allowing us to connect all 156 outputs. In an outdoor location we fit the main rig, consisting of UHF, FM & DAB aerials and also an 80cm Satellite Dish. This was then connected to all the distribution kit to supply the combined signal to all locations. In each room a quadplex wall plate was fitted allowing for the connection of various equipment. Each system was fully test and the clients were issued with CAI Commission Certificates.
