Feedback from the companies we've partnered with in the Waste Management sector.

  • Two-way radios allows us to maintain the level of safeguarding that is required. Our fast-moving facility has many children with complex medical and behaviour needs and by implementing an Apex 500 radio system they are able to continue to meet the needs of their pupils. The ability to communicate and assess situations is a vital requirement, and two-way radios have provided the tools to relocate resources or gain support immediately.

Your Questions, Our Answers: FAQ Quick Guide

What does ATEX and Intrinsically Safe mean?

ATEX Intrinsically Safe radio equipment is designed to ensure your employee’s safety when working in potentially hazardous environments. Due to the nature of explosive atmospheres, it is recommended that ATEX rated equipment is used instead of the standard equipment. This is due to the rigorous testing and additional standards they are required to be met by ATEX Directives.

At Apex Radio Systems, we have vast experience in supplying many ATEX solutions across different industries. Contact today for more information or a demonstration.

Licensed or Licensed Free Radios

A Radio Licence provides you with a unique frequency on which you can operate your radios legally and securely. This licence is provided by Ofcom and starts at £75 for 5 years, although different types of licences are available.

Once you have an active Ofcom licence, your radios will be coded to that specific frequency allowing you to communicate with minimal or no interference from others in the area depending on the licence type.  Find out more HERE.

Licensed Free
Licence Free radios, also known as PMR radios are perfect for communication over smaller areas. Depending on the territory, Personal Mobile Radios (PMR446) can provide up to 0.5 – 1 mile of coverage. Unlike Licenced Radios, these devices do not need any advanced programming – they are ready to be used straight from the box.

Digital or Analogue Radios

Traditionally, analogue radios have provided reliable communication between team members, but digital radio has far expanded the capabilities of two-way voice communications. Digital radios provide superior voice quality at the reaches of coverage areas, double the capacity of an existing 12.5 kHz channel and up to 40% longer battery life on a single charge.

Deciding which radios would be best for you is something we can recommend. Call us on 0191 228 0466 for guidance or read more HERE.
