The superior functionality and audio clarity of our radio equipment improve the communications for staff, management, crane operators and banksmen in the harshest environments.
We have a large stock of digital and analogue radios, as well as accessories. Barratt usually decides to hire or buy our radio equipment depending on their budget restraints. The radios we supply are made by a wide range of reputable manufacturers. And because we always perform a free initial site survey, we’re able to choose the best two way radios for each project.
We have supplied radios to the construction sector for many years. And we’re acutely aware that communication breakdown in a high-risk industry is not an option. That’s why you get from us advanced, easy-to-use radios such as Motorola’s digital radios DP2400 and DP2600. With these powerful, weatherproof radios you get perfect coverage throughout your site in all conditions. However, where back-to-back radio coverage is difficult to achieve in obstructed areas, we install DR3000 Repeaters to boost your radio signals. These self-contained units can be rack or wall-mounted, or even placed on a desk. To save you time and money, we carry out fast equipment changeovers so you can eliminate frustrating down time.
Features like ‘noise-cancellation’ and ‘intelligent audio’ offer radio users loud and clear sound to counter the raucous arena of building sites. ‘Private calling’ also allows managers and supervisors to get across vital messages quickly to selected individuals or different work groups. There are also popular safety facilities called ‘Lone Worker’ and ‘Man Down’. These safeguard the staff by alerting colleagues immediately when a radio user is incapacitated. What’s more, because the batteries in digital radios last 40 percent longer compared to analogue, employees avoid the hassle of disrupting their work shift to recharge their battery.
Radio transmissions generated by other local cranes have the ability to interfere with your critical radio communications, or even lead to your crane drivers receiving the wrong directions. Fortunately, by employing a different radio frequency you can instantly neutralise these stray signals propagated by alien cranes. Brentwood are able to obtain the obligatory licence for this single channel on your behalf from OFCOM. We will also program your radios to the assigned frequency free of charge. As well as drastically reducing the interference from foreign cranes, the other benefits of a licensed frequency are greater range, and the availability of even more radio features.
But more than that, to counteract a potential loss of signal due to an ever-changing landscape, our specialist engineers can fit a directional antenna on the crane cab. This allows the crane operator to receive a dependable signal, enabling him to hear the lifting instructions from the signaller at all times. It also prevents his outgoing transmissions impinging on the radios of other cranes operating in the area.
For maximum safety during lifting procedures, it’s also advisable for crane drivers to use a hands-free two-way radio system. We install this for you; the kit comprises a strategically-fitted ‘goose microphone’, a dash-mounted radio, and a foot pedal (to conveniently activate the Press-To-Transmit mode).
Brentwood’s tailored radio systems help you to meet the stringent health and safety regulations for construction projects, plus greatly improve the operational efficiency of both crane operators and ground workers alike.
If your construction company need two-way radios to enhance work performance and elevate health and safety across any large site – please give us a call on 01245 403520 to discuss your requirements.
