Two-way radios within the construction industry are a must in ensuring health & safety for everyone on site. With cranes and heavy machinery operating and workers needing to contact each other over large areas, two-way radios are the only and best option in ensuring the message gets to the relevant worker without fail.

With the two-way radio industry evolving at a rapid rate, we can offer extra apps/ features to ensure accidents on site are reduced and acted upon quickly and efficiently. Apps such as lone worker and man down not only help to decrease accident rates but also give workers peace of mind when working individually or as part of a team.

Introducing two-way radios to your construction site will not only save communication time but will also increase productivity! We have many construction companies contacting us with a cry for help! They have communication issues such as:

  • Poor coverage
  • Intermittent equipment (including poor battery life)
  • Non-robust radio equipment

From our extensive experience we can offer future clients the best solution for their construction site.

The range of two-way radios we offer to this industry is vast! We cater for all budgets and requirements and offer an extensive range of accessories. The radios we offer give a rugged and durable solution to cope with the harshest conditions, offering full site coverage. We also offer radios that are dust resistant and waterproof which are extremely popular within this sector to extend equipment life. 

Summary – Why is it vital for construction sites to have two-way radios?

  • Health & Safety
  • Successful communication between workers operating machinery (cranes and diggers)
  • Site access control
  • Efficient control of workers' locations
  • Individual and group calling
  • Rugged and reliable equipment

Motorola DP2400e

Commonplace across construction sites, Motorola’s DP2400e is reliable, rugged, user-friendly and cost-effective. It’s the perfect compromise between the low-cost but less robust DP1400 and the robust but higher-priced DP4000e series. Available in both UHF and VHF variants with up-to 28 hours battery life (depending on which battery option you select), the DP2000e series has become the go-to radio for construction managers, workers and contractors alike. 

Hytera PD705LT

Hytera’s PD705LT is a cost-effective alternative to the Motorola DP2400e. But, make no mistake, it is every bit as robust, rugged and reliable whilst remaining powerful and user-friendly. DTS provide both options for our customers in construction and let them decide based on their brand preference. 

Motorola DM4400e

Motorola’s DM4400e can be fitting within diggers, lifters and other vehicles across a construction site. Alternatively, the DM4400e can be desk-mounted to give office staff easy connection to the teams on the ground. DTS also offer a unique hands-free crane kit for several of our construction clients with specialised antenna system designed to fire signal downwards. This allows the crane operator to stay in contact with the banksman without having to take their hands off of the crane controls in their cab.


Man Down


The Man Down option will let you know if the radio has been tilted at a certain angle. This may happen for instance if the radio user has fallen over or is unconscious or injured. At this angle, or if the phone is horizontal, the alarm will be triggered after a warning is issued to the user.

Lone Worker


Through your digital two-way radios, you can have a support package to ensure all of your staff are within easy reach, in real time. By utilising the PTT on a two-way radio the user when notified presses and releases to confirm that they are OK if the user does not communicate within the pre-defined time the radio will then go into an ‘emergency mode’. Utilising a loud audible tone the radio will warn the user to respond, if they do not it will set the emergency procedure into play, the radio controller and other users will then be notified.
