Case Studies – McAleer & Rushe

Mc Aleer & Rushe are a family business that has grown into one of the UK’s leading design & build contractors.  After celebrating 50 years of business in 2017, they are very proud to maintain their steadfast reputation in the completion of major projects on time, on budget and to the highest quality of standards.

Mc Aleer & Rushe turned to Lynn Communications to solve their communication issues over their construction sites across Southern and Northern Ireland.

The requirement was to design a bespoke crane to ground communication solution which can integrate into a new digital communication system for the ground construction crews.  This posed a challenge for Lynn Communications design engineers.

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

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

A digital hands-free crane radio offers:

  • Single radio (banks man only) or dual radio (banks man and crash emergency).
  • Foot pedal operations for safer lifting operations.
  • Digital radio signaling for increased clarity.
  • Noise reducing microphone.
  • 10w External Speaker.
  • Better coverage over analogue radio systems.
  • Battery back-up for two hours.
  • Secure transmission, reducing interference levels.
  • Designed for simple installation/removal.
  • Fully Comreg licensed.

After extensive testing we decided that the best radios for this solution would be a Motorola DM4601e in the crane paired with Motorola DP1400 digital handheld radios for the ground crew.

The solution proved a big success on the test site. So much so that Mc Aleer & Rushe have now rolled out this system throughout all their construction sites in Southern and Northern Ireland with our engineers and sales team supporting any repairs or queries that arise from time to time.

“Tom and the team at Lynn Communications have worked closely with us on various projects. From licensing to repairs to supplying new equipment Lynn Communications has a solution. We would have no hesitation in recommending Lynn Communications”
