Two way radio and walkie talkie systems for construction

What two way radio is best for Construction Sites?

Communication between workers on a construction site is paramount for everyone’s safety and enables projects to be delivered on time. Construction sites face many challenges when it comes to methods of two-way communication, such as uninterrupted signal coverage, ground to crane operators having good range, to linking subcontractors and security staff.

Here at Tranex we offer a range of quality walkie talkies with durability and efficiency in mind. Our two-way radios help to avoid potential drops in communication and ensure that on-site workers remain in range. It has become apparent in recent years that two-way radios are a vital method of communication on busy, loud construction sites.

How many radios can be charged at once? Will all employees be kept in range? We can advise and help you decide the best units for the size of your team. Cost-effective, quality wireless communication is key and we can help provide this.

On larger scale sites we recommended the use of a dedicated Ofcom licence to ensure uninterrupted communications. The team at Tranex are more than happy to facilitate in the arrangement of this.
