Two way radios are an important tool for those in the construction business. Giving workers the ability to instantly communicate with each other not only saves time and creates more productivity - it also improves workplace safety. In construction, where employees are mobile and commonly carry materials and work around machinery, radio durability is critical. Lightweight radios aren't good at handling abuse, so we recommend models that meet military specifications for durability and are resistant to water and dust.
Two watt radios will provide sufficient range for most applications, but for larger sites we recommend 4 watt radios with repeater capability. UHF signals provide a lot of flexibility, operating well both outdoors and in and around structures. If workers are divided into distinct groups or teams, a radio supporting multiple channels will be important. This will allow each group to keep their communications to themselves, while providing the flexibility to communicate with other groups as needed.
• Increased calling capacity on a single license: Two virtual channels within a single 12.5 kHz licensed repeater channel allow you to double the calling capacity for the price of one license without a second repeater and without interference from nearby radio users.
• Integrated voice and data: Portable and mobile radios put the power of voice and data, such as text messaging and GPS, into a single device to make it easy for your construction crew to stay connected and safe.
• Audio accessories: Provide audio technology that enhance high quality communications for noise suppression, speech clarity, and loudness.
• Efficient battery technology: High capacity battery options ensure you have a battery that supports long shifts common at the construction site.
• IP Site Connect: Communicate instantly with your work teams on the other side of the construction site or across town. IP Site Connect links up to 15 sites to overcome distance as well as physical obstructions – extending the communication reach of your work team.
