City of St Louis Park Hearing Loop Dedication

Loop Minnesota helps the City of St. Louis Park install a Hearing Loop

Loop Minnesota along with the Hearing Loss Association of America – Twin Cities Chapter each contributed funds to help pay for the Hearing Loop at the City of St. Louis Park City Hall Council Room.  The large room seats 120 people and is used every day during the week for meetings.

Loop Minnesota organized the actual installation of the loop and equipment.

At the St. Louis Park City Council hearing loop dedication, a council member spoke:  “I had a serious hearing loss in one ear when I was a child.  I have a hearing aid – I recently got a TeleCoil installed in it – this is the first time that I have experienced the loop – it is wonderful – I can hear the presenter very clearly – it is 200% better.  I do not hear the background noise at all…”


Please come to a meeting!

The Loop Minnesota has a member meeting to discuss possible Looping projects at the St. Louis Park City Hall at 5005 Minnetonka Blvd.,  St. Louis Park, MN 55416  – in the  Council Chambers 3rd floor.  Pizza and other snacks are served.

List of Contractors That Install Hearing Loops

Listed below are companies trained in hearing loop installation. However, when contracting for the installation of a hearing loop, it is important to assure that the loop will comply with IEC standard 60118-4. A certificate to that effect should be issued by the installer at the completion of the work.
