Two-Way Radios for Construction

Radios for Construction

Construction, plumbing, electrical work, and other building maintenance jobs are some of the toughest, both for you and for your two-way radio. You need a no-nonsense radio to handle the job.  Your two-way radio needs to:

  • be rugged to withstand everything a construction job-site can throw your way
  • have knobs & buttons that can be easy to manipulate while wearing gloves
  • have loud audio so you can hear even when working at noisy job-sites

We recommend two-way radios that meet military specifications for durability and are resistant to water and dust. You usually need to communicate both indoors and outdoors, so UHF two-way radios are your best choice. However, VHF radios will generally work for you as well. So if you already have VHF and just want to add some more radios, then look at the VHF versions of the radios listed below.
