PA Case Study - Twinings Tea

Public Address System

Twinings Tea – Public Address System

Twinings Tea, the UK’s leading brand for premium teas, wanted a complete new background music & paging system to communicate to and entertain the staff.

Location:   Andover, Hampshire

The Client:

Trading since 1706, Twinings Tea is the UK’s leading brand for premium teas and now offers more than 100 varieties all over the world.

For the past 50 years, Twinings Tea has been blended and packaged at their main Andover factory which employs the majority of the Company’s 1000 employees.

System Requirements:

As part of the Company’s manufacturing redevelopment programme and to support the introduction of the factory’s new automated packaging line, UK integrators Midland Communications were asked to specify and install a complete new background music and paging system to communicate to and entertain the staff throughout the entire complex.

The Solution:

Midland Communications specified, supplied and installed a complete public address and background music system, powered by an InterM audio rack.

The Twinings Tea PA Rack features InterM’s QD range of multi-channel amplifiers, allowing for multiple source and level control to each of the individual zones throughout the factory. The rack also includes a Digital Audio Storage and Replay Unit which is loaded with a series of pre-recorded staff messages and tones which can be activated via NO/NC switches or desktop paging microphones.

The loudspeakers specified were chosen dependent on the space and ambient noise levels of the different areas of the building. A mix of Projector, Horn and Suspended speakers were specified for the production and packaging areas where clear voice and music reproduction has to compete with high ambient noise levels; whereas in quieter areas of the building (such as offices and canteen, etc) IC Audio Wall Speakers and Ceiling Speakers were chosen to provide a wider-frequency, better tone of audio reproduction.
