As an audio visual supplier and of course, radio communications. A lot of our work is based around the hospitality and event industry. We have seen all of our hires wiped out due to the COVID-19 pandemic taking place. We, just like many other fantastic companies around the UK are trying to redeploy not only our equipment but also manpower where it is needed. Unlike other event hire companies, we have CUT our prices to help governement agencies get equipment deployed quickly as possible. - We are helping the NHS where we can and also took part in the #ClapForOurCarers and #LightItBlue on the Thursdays.

How can we help during COVID-19?

We have taken phonecalls this week from project and civil contingency coordinators for both local councils around Wales but also NHS Medical staff and also UK Government. From construction of temporary drive-thru mobile testing facility for coronavirus to helping hospital staff keep in touch with temporary ICU wards. UK Government Drive Through Lab Testing

This article hopefully outlines how our service, products and equipment are here to be hire and utilised at a time of need.

We can provide;-

2 Way Radio Communications

Walkie Talkies  are pivitol in mission critical situations like we currently face. Push to talk via a walkie talkie is the quickest, fastest and most sterile way to get hold of logistics staff, construction workers and hospital staff. Doctors, Matrons, Ward Nurses, porters and more.

We know mission critical communications is exactly that and our radio engineers are always on call should you need to hire equipment.

Public Address Systems (Loudspeakers, Megaphones, Loudhailers and Sound equipment).

As the UK government steps up its testing of NHS staff and eventually public. The growth in drive through mobile testing facilities to check for COVID-19 means you need to give clear instructions to vehicles. Using a speaker system can clearly direct vehicles into the relevant test bays without any form of contact taking place. This keeps workers, testing staff and NHS personnel safe and distant from those in vehicles.

We can deploy a range of speaker setups to cover testing facilities and temporary hospitals. Perfect to communicate your message to delivery lorries, ambulances and more.

Temporary Outdoor Speaker Systems from £40

Megaphones/Loudhailers - Rent for £9

We have vehicle mounted speaker systems ready to go. These help you clear parks and other outdoor spaces with ease and get the Stay Home, Save Lives message across. Temporary systems such as those we can hire out mean you have no damage to hire vehicles or your own officer or staff vehicles should they have to be utilised yet remaining strong and safe while driving around.
