Tapeswitch a turn on for CBBC studio at Media City

Tapeswitch has recently had another application of its products commissioned, this time an installation at the CBBC Studios at Media City in Manchester. TTS Interiors was commissioned to produce the reception area seating, which was to be fitted with special sound effects.

The pressure from a visitor sitting down activated the sensor which in turn would result in the playing of pre recorded noises, music and voices. TTS interiors chose to work with Tapeswitch based on the company's track record of developing innovate and bespoke solutions to pressure sensitive switching problems.

The sensor manufactured by Tapeswitch used five small switches and a layer of 2mm polycarbonate, which was sandwiched between two layers of 2mm flexible PVC. When the seat is sat on the polycarbonate layer evenly distributes the weight so not to damage any internal parts.
