Communication system for construction professionals operating in demanding environments who need to work in a safe, hands-free environment.

There are many potentially dangerous conditions associated with the construction industry. The use of a clear, intelligible communication system greatly reduces the risks stemming from miscommunication. Our all-in-one and hands-free wireless audio conference systems are available as individual components and in kit form.

The Vokkero® system allows crews to communicate instantly up to 800 meters (a half-mile) radius. This system does not require any fixed base-station, providing complete mobility on any construction site. Hands-free operation allows the users to completely focus on their work (handling loads, crane operation, demolition, roof covering, etc.), while remaining in full audio contact with their team.

Strong points

  • A clear and intelligible communication in noisy or challenging environment
  • An instant conference and efficient communication
  • A secure and confidential communication
  • Sustainable radio and easy to use system

Application

Construction - VOKKERO Application

In this example, we have two separate building teams:

  • Team No. 1: Laborers 2 and 3, who work on scaffolding (building, cleaning facades, etc), and are supervised by the Site Manager.
  • Team No. 2: The Crane Operator and his teammate, Laborer 1 who is in charge of handling the load under the crane. They are supervised by the Team Leader.
  • The Team Leader and the Site Manager are in constant contact throughout the construction process.

VOKKERO is a hands-free, all-in-one communication system which ensures clear, intelligible, and continuous communication within each team (No. 1 and No. 2), while also providing an efficient means of communication between the two teams via their supervisors (the Team Leader and Site Manager).

Establishing a continuous, hands-free audio connection between members of an intervening team is thus possible, significantly reducing the inherent risks in the construction industry stemming from miscommunication..
