Walkie talkies are used for many different purposes in modern society and they need to be versatile to keep up with the demands of operatives. Two-way radios are used in many different industries including security, events and construction just to name a few. In the security industry, operatives often find themselves in situations where the weather can make it difficult to perform their role. In these situations, you need equipment that can be relied on. 


At Wall to Wall Communications, we’ve been providing two-way communication systems for over 40 years and are experts in what we do. One important feature that we offer with some of our walkie talkies is that they are waterproof. From our experience, we found that people who work in the security industry often are exposed to harsh elements and need a walkie talkie that can operate in heavy rain. Waterproof walkie talkies can save your business a lot of headaches and will ensure that a line of communication is always maintained, to guarantee the safety of your workforce. If you have any further questions on how our walkie talkies can benefit your business, please get in touch today.

What Makes Walkie Talkies Waterproof?

If you work in an industry that faces environmental challenges like rain, a waterproof two-way radio system might be the best solution to your communications needs. These are particularly effective when you are working in subterranean worksites that experience a lot of moisture. Waterproof walkie talkies are commonly used for security personnel who have to work outside to manage crowds like at festivals or football matches. This means that they have to protect the public whilst being exposed to the weather. 

Here are some of the models from our range we recommend:

To ensure that our walkie talkies are waterproof, we make sure that we use rubberised seals that prevent water damage to the devices and build the materials out of chemicals that help displace the water once it touches the two-way radios. This enables the radios to remain underwater for up to 30 minutes without malfunctioning.

What Industries Are Waterproof Walkie Talkies Designed For?

Waterproof walkie talkies are ideally suited for industries that operate mostly outside and are exposed to the elements. These devices would be ideal for security companies that have contracts with outdoor events or are on patrol at night, making sure areas are secure like the railway networks. They also are ideal for blue light emergency services, especially in incidents when they are dealing with large crowds. Another industry that waterproof walkie talkies are designed for is the construction industries as often building projects are outdoors and are exposed to heavy rainfall throughout the year. These sites must keep on top of health and safety, so maintaining communications between workers in different areas of the construction site is important.
