As versatile as the environment in which they are used, walkie talkies are being increasingly utilised within the education sector. The requirement for instant contact within departments internally and externally is becoming more and more useful in the sharing of information and enhancing logistical operations enabling teaching, estates and administrative staff alike to fulfill their roles effectively day to day, not just for fire alarms and other facility alerts.
We've selected the top five best handsets based on value, scalability and user experience. We understand that not only should your walkie talkie be cost effective, but the fleet can be increased and above all be comfortable to wear and use.
Here's our top five recommended radios for schools:
1. Motorola DP1400
Rugged radio with simple, intuitive controls. A fully licensed analogue or digital radio ensuring security and operational ease - it's a true workhorse radio
2. Hytera PD705
A fantastic radio at a bargain price. A licensed radio which has had a full service before leaving our hire fleet meaning it's got plenty of year's service left. Ex-hire radios are supplied complete with a new battery.

One of the most intelligent radios in our catalogue, with everything you would expect from a professional radio. The unit excels in allowing expansion as your facility grows.

The smaller sibling to the ever-popular PD705, this superb little licence-free radio is great to use around your premises or on a school trip in the UK or Europe. With the ability to use accessories this handset comes ready to use straight out of the box.
