Airport Success Stories

London Luton Airport

In 1998, Luton Airport had only two small departure halls with a total of eight gates.
The research for a suitable paging system brought Lorn Money (at ADC & Company) to TOA UK.
The TOA paging solution SX-1000 system was installed and is still in use today.
That’s 21 years of continuous use with only one upgrade in 2015.

In 2018 as a new international arrival hall was built, TOA’s brand new VX-3000 system was installed in the old ­terminal. It directly networks with the AviaVox System.

Southend Airport, Essex

Southend airport was the third busiest Airport in the UK between the 60’s & 70’s, initially a base for fighter squad­rons during World War II, Southend Airport has now de­veloped into a modern airport operating approximately 70 flights per week.

The new look Southend Airport required an expandable PA/ VA system which allows flexible simultaneous mes­saging to different zones within the airport.

TOA initially installed the VX-2000 system but since the new renovations, the system has been upgraded to the SX-2000 connected to TOA’s own network protocol.

TOA’s SR-H2L and SR-H3L Line array speakers are used throughout the airport ensuring that the sound quality is focused and direct - making sure that all messages are heard loud and clear.

TOA products installed:

TOA SX-2000 audio management system, TOA SR-H2L & SR-H3L Line Array Speaker, TOA PC-1867FC Ceiling Speaker.
