The construction industry is one of the most dynamic and fast-paced industries out there, with numerous moving parts that need to be coordinated in order to ensure timely and efficient completion of projects, not to mention keeping workers safe. Two-way radios are an invaluable tool for those working in construction, as they provide a reliable and efficient means of communication between team members, regardless of their location on the job site.
However, setting up and managing two-way radio systems for construction sites is yet another challenging set of items on a project’s to-do list, between setting up a repeater and providing effective coverage, to managing all the equipment. And accounting for equipment cost on a project basis may be difficult when dealing with capitalized expenditures. You may also have multiple projects running simultaneously and may not have enough equipment to run radio systems with handsets for workers at all the sites.
That’s where Day Wireless Systems can help! Our Rentals department has all the equipment and knowledge you need to scale (for) all of your construction projects.

Unusual Projects Accepted
Although we service a wide variety of typical construction projects, DWS is also open to providing rental solutions for more uncommon scenarios.
In one situation, we provided a two-way radio system for a rail construction and maintenance crew. The repeater was located in the back of a truck, which would move with the crew along the railway and park in a position to provide an umbrella of coverage for workers.
For a wind farm construction with varied terrain and disparate locations of workers, they had repeaters everywhere, but not everyone could connect because there were no cell signals in many of the locations. We started with a standard IP Site Connect and ended with a Link Capacity Plus system, adjusting on the fly to put in the different system with completely different programming to help ensure all workers were connected.
In another case, when a large convention center completed their expansion, they unexpectedly did not have complete coverage in their new wing and needed it for a very large convention. DWS was able to immediately bring a repeater that was linked to the main convention system, along with the number of radios needed for the convention workers, to ensure seamless coverage at the convention and with the main convention center and their security teams.
One of our favorite Rentals stories is of a community who rented radios for their 4th of July fireworks display. The fireworks supervisor would put a rubber band around a push-to-talk radio button and place that handset next to the speaker. He would then listen to the music via headset from his radio unit so he could match the fireworks release with the exact timing of the music.
