Radio Communication In Tunnels
You can really enhance the safety of your employees
To conform to the latest safety legislation, construction employees working on tunnel construction projects must be able to communicate in an emergency from anywhere on-site. Full radio coverage is obligatory, whether employees are working at ground level, or within deep tunnel space. The need for reliable radio communication in tunnels is critical to both productivity and employee safety.
At Brentwood Communications, we supply advanced two way digital radios, and repeater units. This means your tunnel communication system has the ability to overcome the most awkward terrain, both above and below ground. For example, we often use Motorola SLR5500 repeaters, which have the ability to improve and expand tunnel radio coverage at all times in the harshest conditions. Once they receive the incoming radio signals, they’re able to broadcast them at a higher wattage without delaying the transmission. This ability to provide uninterrupted coverage for radio communication in tunnels ensures efficiency throughout your team whenever you need to relay information.
We help to strategically position the repeater units throughout the site and interlink them using cables. This arrangement boosts the radio transmissions uniformly across all levels, including underground. It’s here we enhance coverage by skilfully placing repeater antennas along the length of the tunnels, creating a flawless tunnel communication system. Having perfect reception across all working areas means any radio user can send an alarm in an emergency using their two way radio. This is the perfect solution for lone workers or when your team are out of view on-site, providing the ability to check in and ensure their safety.
By hiring or buying your tunnel radio equipment from Brentwood Communications, your managers and workers can liaise and collaborate reliably at the touch of a button (and at reduced cost).
