Modern two way radio systems can offer much more than just voice communication. Brentwood has a wide range of system solutions available that can make all the difference on a major construction project. Below are just a few of the solutions achievable within your two way radio system:
The Gate Intercom gives you the flexibility to allow access to your premises no matter where you are across your site. No need to employ dedicated gate staff to monitor the entrance to your site.
Consisting of a very loud tone and a flashing light, Emergency Freeze allows you to alert your staff to stop what they are doing instantly, in the event of an emergency. It is impossible to ignore, even in the noisiest of environments.
With the installation of a goose neck mic and a foot pedal in the place of a Push-To-Talk button, heavy goods vehicle drivers or crane drivers can communicate with workers on the ground, whilst still keeping their hands free for controls. Operates wirelessly and is fitted within just a few hours to minimize any downtime.
Strategically placed repeaters and antennas help to boost coverage. Even users below ground in deep tunnel spaces can communicate easily with the team on the ground. Perfect reception across all working areas means any radio user can send an alarm in an emergency, protecting the safety of your staff.
Designed to replace expensive hard-wired communication systems, the crane intercom allows radios and non-radio users to contact the crane driver at a touch of a button. Mounted in place, the intercom cannot be moved making for a reliable communication point.
• Mains powered: no recharging is necessary
• Zero downtime: comes complete with battery back up in the event of the mains power failing
Allows your users to be automatically distributed onto the next available channel when they want to make a transmission, rather than having to wait for their channel to become free. The system can handle private one-to-one calls as well as group calls and even text messages. It can guarantee your communication gets through 100% of the time – critical in emergency situations.
If you have several buildings, on or off site, or multiple sites across the UK, your two way radio system can be connected via a network to enable full coverage across all locations. This means you wouldn’t have to rely on a mobile phone signal for example that could, at times, be unpredictable, to connect with colleagues in other locations. They are always reachable via your existing two way radio system.
