Case studies

Real examples and case studies of SFL two way radio hires:

Construction

SFL has provided, supported and partnered many of the major construction companies in the industry for digital two way radio hire, including Carillion, Costain, HTC Wolffkran, Kier, Mace, Renaker Build and Vinci Group.

Hands-free crane radio hire

In order to enhance crane to ground communications on construction sites, SFL has developed a digital hands-free radio application which is installed within the cab of the crane.

The crane radio set-up which uses a Motorola platform and employs DMR technology offers crystal clear radio transmissions and increased two way radio coverage, whilst reducing interference and background noise.

The crane hands-free radio is available to hire in two forms; a single and double. The double option is for multiple cranes on site where a ‘crash’ emergency radio system is used independently and two separate radios are required.

SFL has supplied hundreds of construction sites with this bespoke communications tool for crane use which can either be installed by the customer or by a fully trained SFL radio engineer.

Customer Service

SFL Mobile Radio offer a tailored radio package, including a current day solution as well as an ongoing partnership that will help your organisation’s communications evolve alongside your business needs.

At the planning stage of every system, our team will assess your needs and possible future feature requirements in order to design the most suitable radio system within budget.

And if required we offer onsite support to guide you through your project.

Site Surveys and radio trials

If needed we will carry out a site survey to make sure you get the required coverage across your site. In order to increase a coverage area, it may be necessary to implement a repeater into your radio system, or even a series of linked repeaters. On planning your system we will advise you if a repeater is required. Repeaters are also available to hire.

We offer a free one week trial period on your radio equipment hire, in order for you to assess the equipment in its proposed environment.

Ofcom Licensing

If you require a dedicated radio frequency, a radio licence approved by Ofcom is necessary by law. Licensed radios have a greater power output and so offer increased range and coverage. A dedicated frequency also ensures that only those on that frequency can hear transmissions. Our Ofcom licence here at SFL covers all the equipment we hire out, so most of our customers will not need to get their own Ofcom licence for their two way radio hire.

The benefits of an SFL radio equipment hire:

  • Advanced two way radio equipment
  • Much lower capital outlay
  • Ofcom management
  • FREE site survey/trial – either by phone or site attendance
  • Fully maintained – 24-hour replacement policy for all equipment including batteries
  • Upgradeable – we will develop your system as your organisation grows
  • Next day delivery nationwide – receive your system before 9am next day*
  • Fleet management

*subject to credit account status and additional carriage charge

 

Your package will include:

  • Fully commissioned two way radio equipment with high capacity battery, antenna, spring loaded belt clip, charger
  • Full range of audio earpieces, carrying applications, base stations
  • Ofcom licence management
  • Dedicated hire fleet engineering team
  • Hire Fleet Management via our fully integrated Hire Software Package
  • Dedicated hire desk managers who will support you throughout the project

Working with our customers

Sectors

In all industry divisions, supporting communications between you and your employees is important in maximising efficiency, thus resulting in greater customer satisfaction.

We welcome enquiries from all industry sectors in London, whether it’s for a short term or long term two way radio hire.

Here are some of the sectors we have worked with:

Hospitality & Leisure, Security, Utilities & Power, Construction, Local Government, Education, Warehousing and Short Term Events (these will be clickable).

Construction

The construction industry is SFL’s biggest market sector within the UK, with many of these projects taking place in London. Since 1997 we have supplied, maintained and partnered some of the largest construction firms in the industry for digital radio hire, including Vinci Group, Costain, Carillion, HTC Wolffkran, Renaker Build and Mace.

Examples of SFL Mobile Radio working together on construction sites

  • SFL’s hands-free crane radios play ‘vital role’ on HTC Wolffkran sites
  • Next day mobile radio delivery to Canary Wharf development
  • Hands-free crane radios used on Tottenham Hotspurs development
  • SFL develops bespoke crane hands-free radio system
  • Costain chooses SFL mobile radio for Immingham bypass project
  • Hands-free crane radio on construction sites

In addition to standard two-way radios, our design engineers have developed a sophisticated crane hands-free radio system, which has successfully been adopted as a safety tool by many of the UK’s tower crane and crawler crane providers.

The crane radio set-up which employs a Motorola platform and utilises digital DMR radio technology offers crystal clear radio transmissions and increased radio coverage, whilst reducing interference and background noise.

The hands-free radio system allows the crane operator to fully concentrate on crane operations on a construction site, whilst maintaining contact with their lifting team, critical for safe lifting operations.

The crane hands-free radio is available in two forms; a single and double. The double option is for multiple cranes on site where a ‘crash’ emergency radio system is used independently and two separate radios are required. Both options are approved by Ofcom for use within the UK.

Short term events

Radio equipment hire for short term events is another popular sector in London. Whether it’s a sporting, music, conference or carnival, SFL can provide a short term personalised radio solution to make sure that your event’s communications run smoothly and efficiently, in order for you to concentrate on making the event a huge success.

Whatever your budget, we can offer Ofcom approved analogue simple two way walkie talkie communications to a full digital radio networkwith trailer mast for increased radio coverage requirements all within minimal notice period.

The equipment

We only stock radios and accessories from the most recognised manufacturers including Motorola, Sepura, Hytera, Kenwood and Icom.

Continued commitment investing into our hire department has created a fleet of over 11,000 units and this is rapidly growing. And for your peace of mind our equipment is one of the youngest fleets of hire radios within the UK.

As well as 2-way radios, we also have a full range of earpieces, headsets, lapel microphones available for hire, please see our accessories page for more information.

 

Site Surveys and radio trials

We are more than happy to carry out a site survey in order to check you receive the necessary coverage across your site. If a greater coverage area is required, we may need to employ a repeater or a sequence of linked repeaters into your radio system. Repeaters are also available to hire.

We offer a free one week trial period on equipment, so you are able to evaluate your radio equipment in its planned location.

Licensing

In order to access a dedicated frequency, a radio licence granted by Ofcom is required by law. Licensed radios have a larger power output and so offer increased range and coverage. Licensed radios are generally more robust, with clearer audio quality and the conversation more secure. SFL’s Ofcom licence covers all our equipment hired out, so the majority of our customers will not need to obtain an Ofcom licence of their own.
