Two way radios are broadly used within the construction industry to help the site managers to coordinate their workforce more effectively. Two way radios deliver crucial messages instantly, are robust and are one of the crucial safety tools on construction sites.
Two way radios are perfect for construction sites as they are tough and durable. Many of the two way radios now offer ingress protection rating of 67 what means they are dust and waterproof – making them an excellent tool for working outside in harsh weather conditions or dusty places.
Furthermore, two way radios are rugged devices and are protected against drops and falls and come with powerful speakers – again very handy for construction sites.
Depending on the site’s size and infrastructure around, construction companies use both licence free and licenced radios.
From the licence free versions we would recommend the Icom F29SR as it has IP67 rating making it dust and waterproof. It is very easy to use and is very cost effective.
Another good option could be Hytera 446 Power which has IP66 rating and is very cost effective.
However, the licenced two way radios are more common within the construction industry as they offer a better coverage and functionalities. The below are the best sellers for construction sites:
Icom IC-F2000 (replacement of Icom 4002) – Reasonably priced radio. Very easy to use and is dust and waterproof – IP67 Rating. We supplied these radios to Longcross Construction, Midas Construction and Metnor Construction.
