Blake’s in Gravesend is a popular Lounge Bar and Club making its name as a trendy weekend venue with a growing reputation for hosting exclusive DJ’s, live music acts and themed parties.
Attracting busy crowds of weekend revellers, one of the biggest challenges for club management is coordinating its team of staff to make sure the nights run smoothly, while also ensuring everyone stays safe.
The club’s owners approached Brentwood asking for advice on a radio system reliable enough to keep all bar, door and backroom staff in continuous contact, even when on the move in a busy club night, whilst also contending with the volume of the high power PA system.
Having looked carefully at the club’s layout and staffing levels, we suggested a suite of Motorola DP1400 digital handsets.
The DP1400 combines simplicity of use and reliability with all of the advantages of the latest digital radio technology. With a larger range than analogue radios, digital two way radios can be trusted to keep users in contact over a wider area.
Lightweight and unobtrusive, the DP1400 is perfect for use on the move – ideal in a busy venue. The digital signal also offers high quality crisp, clear audio, with the added benefit of smart noise cancelling filters. These features will adjust the audio settings to minimise background noise and automatically boost speaker volume, optimising call quality and clarity in noisy environments.
Technically Assigned License
We supplied Blake’s with the DP1400 handsets on a Technically Assigned license. This means that the frequencies on which the handsets operate are fixed to the club’s location. The handsets cannot be used anywhere other than the club, but it also means that no one else is using the same frequencies in that area.
We suggested this license type to minimise the risk of interference caused by other radio users. Located in the centre of Gravesend, there are numerous other businesses using two way radios on Friday and Saturday nights, from taxi ranks to other bars and clubs. By having its own dedicated frequency, Blake’s can avoid the buzz of these other conversations interrupting their own operations.
