Part of the eastward expansion of the traditional City commercial district, Aldgate Tower is an outstanding new landmark in the up-and-coming E1 postcode, a short distance from Shoreditch, Brick Lane and TechCity. With Aldgate East Tube Station on its doorstep, Aldgate Tower provides 320,000 sq ft of Grade A office space over 16 storeys with stunning views over the London skyline.
Keen to replace an existing analogue two way radio system with a modern upgrade that would provide pristine coverage throughout the building, Aldgate Tower’s FM contractor approached Brentwood. Given the size of the premises and the need for completely reliable communications to support fire evacuation protocols and other health and safety measures, we recommended two of Motorola’s most powerful digital handsets, supported by a building-wide repeater and antenna system.
The Motorola DP4400e is a high performance all purpose two way radio featuring best-in-class enhanced audio and advanced features such as private calling, integrated WiFi and work order tickets. The DP4800e enjoys all the same benefits, but with a display screen and full keypad, it is ideal for coordinating operations and managing call groups and work allocation. Both models are programmed with safety functions such as a one-touch Emergency Button and Lone Worker remote monitoring.
