Jean Coutu Group, Varennes, QC
The Jean Coutu Group (PJC) Inc. is the leading Drugstore Chain in Québec, New Brunswick and Ontario. They provide high quality products for health, beauty and hygiene in efficient and friendly environments. The franchise has over 400 stores and employs more than 20,000 people. In 2014, they broke ground on a new 883,000 square feet (50% larger than their original facility in Longueil) distribution center and head office, which is now home to an intelligible communications system.
Distribution centers are incredibly noisy and reverberant environments. Jean Coutu's warehouse is no exception. The corporation needed to meet SPL (sound pressure levels) and control reverberation so that paging communications could be heard intelligibly.
Siscom worked with TOA Canada Corporation to meet the requirements of Jean Coutu Group which included a combination of Paging Horn Speakers and Ceiling Speakers. TOA's SC-630T is a compact, highly intelligible speaker known for providing clear and intelligible public address announcements. The Paging Horn speakers are certified to IP65 standards for dust and water protection. The F-2352SC 2-way wide dispersion ceiling speakers are ideal for office areas or smaller areas where well-balanced sound can be heard uniformly at any location. The head end of the project includes TOA's 9000 Series Modular Digital Matrix Mixer/Amplifier. This Amplifier provides zone paging and DSP. The speakers are driven by TOA's DA Series Power Amplifiers.

Iron Ore Company of Canada, Labrador City, Newfoundland
Iron Ore Company of Canada upgraded their paging system in Labrador City, Newfoundland and Labrador to improve staff safety. The system had to have intelligible sound to convey important information throughout the facility, including safety messages, instructions and tones.
Some of the challenges with this project included; many rooms in different buildings, various sized rooms, many different purposes for the many rooms within the facility, different noise levels in different areas and buildings, including areas where hearing protection is required. Humidity was also a factor.
TOA’s SC-630T – Paging Horns, are ideal for voice and tone signalling distribution, are weather-resistant for tough environments, such as the mining industry, and have intelligible sound.
