Event 360 was responsible for managing the event, and keeping the entire crowd safe and secure through the afternoon. The company specialises in managing large sporting events, and it approached Brentwood for communications equipment to support this mammoth task.
Radio Hire for the Cup Final
Our team recommended the Motorola DP2400 for the Cup Final. This digital two way radio is compact and easy to use, and benefits from IP55 protection to ensure it can be used outdoors. This means the radio is designed to withstand most of the dust and dirt it’s likely to encounter in a typical day at a stadium, and the case is designed to prevent the ingress of low-pressure water jets.
The Motorola DP2400 is ideal for situations where users will encounter varying levels of crowd noise. It automatically adjusts its speaker volume to compensate, so users can clearly hear their radio without having to constantly adjust the volume manually. That makes it ideal for use around the seating areas, but also when moving around the stadium, indoors and out.
The long battery life is a real benefit to security teams that can’t stop to recharge their radios mid-shift; the DP2400 operates for 10-16 hours on a single charge.
Noise levels in a stadium can reach 130 decibels or higher, which is around the same volume as a jet engine on take-off. It’s important that Event 360 staff can still hear each other in these conditions, so we supplied heavy duty noise cancelling headphones for workers that were in the thick of the action.
For team members who needed a more subtle solution, we provided D shape and 2 wire earpieces, so they could use their Motorola DP2400 radios hands-free.
