Two way radios are an important tool for those in the construction business. Giving workers the ability to instantly communicate with each other not only saves time and creates more productivity - it also improves workplace safety.
In construction, where employees are mobile and commonly carry materials and work around machinery, radio durability is critical. Lightweight radios aren't good at handling abuse, so we recommend models that meet military specifications for durability and are resistant to water and dust.
Two watt radios will provide sufficient range for most applications, but for larger sites we recommend 4 watt radios with repeater capability. UHF signals provide a lot of flexibility, operating well both outdoors and in and around structures. If workers are divided into distinct groups or teams, a radio supporting multiple channels will be important. This will allow each group to keep their communications to themselves, while providing the flexibility to communicate with other groups as needed.
