The team at Brentwood was recently asked to supply two way radios for the Haven team at Presthaven. Due to the unique nature of these holiday parks, we needed to design a specific solution that would cover the entire site with ease.
Indoors and out
Haven parks offer a mixture of facilities, both indoors in cosy surroundings, and outside in the fresh air.
Presthaven has an indoor pool, an outdoor lazy river, plus sports events and wildlife activities. This modern five-star resort opens onto wild, rolling sand dunes, and looks out over the Irish Sea.
Accommodation is provided in a fleet of static caravans owned by the park and private owners. The whole family can relax in the entertainment complex, or enjoy a drink and a meal in the restaurant.
Haven staff patrol the length and breadth of this site, rain or shine. Different teams work in the caravans, around the beach roads, in the pool and on reception. Presthaven staff needed two way radios that could cope with this varied terrain, plus a repeater that would provide the reliable signal indoors and out.
Two way radio hire
Brentwood recommended the DP2400 Motorola two way radio for Presthaven, as it is able to cope with variable environmental conditions.
The DP2400 also intelligently senses the background noise and can adjust its speaker to compensate. This ensures that a Haven team member moving from the noisy pool to a calm green space does not need to constantly adjust the volume on their radio.
The radio is also IP55 rated, so it can withstand everything the British summer has to offer, from rain to mud, and even airborne sand. The simple controls mean that everyone in the team can learn to operate the radio in minutes.
Haven’s holiday parks often span coastal areas where mobile reception can be poor. It’s critical that two way radios operate reliably across the whole site.
We recommended that Haven’s Presthaven staff use a Motorola DR3000 repeater, along with an antenna system, to boost coverage over the park. This simple, robust repeater also offers increased calling capacity on a single operator’s licence.
The Presthaven team are also hiring Motorola two wire acoustic tube earpieces, which allow subtle, hands-free use of the Motorola DP2400 two way radios.
