Hewden standardises on the HT900 Series

Hewden is the UK’s market leader in providing hire equipment and contract management to virtually every sector of British industry. They operate a state–of–the–art fleet of equipment, which is sourced from the world’s leading manufacturers and maintained to the highest standards, so it was no surprise that after considering which brand of tough, durable 2-way radio to offer their demanding customers, Hewden opted to standardise on Entel’s HT900 series radios.

Hewden prides itself in providing not only practical, innovative and cost-effective equipment rental solutions, but solutions that do not compromise health and safety. Many of the blue–chip companies hiring radios and other equipment from Hewden, such as Invista and Uniqema work with hazardous materials in dangerous environments. Reliable communications are therefore essential.

The HT900 series portables are intrinsically safe and meet the strict explosion–proof criteria of the EU’s ATEX Directive. This makes them ideal for petro–chemical companies and other environments where the risk of combustion demands that spark–proof communication devices are used. Constructed to Military Standard 810C/D/E, fully waterproof-submersible to IP68 standard, and using the latest Lithium–Ion battery technology, the HT900 series radios are a vital tool for coordinating operations and the safety of everyone on site.

Working in partnership with Entel, which provides back–up and expertise whenever it is required, Hewden is able to maintain its hire fleet of HT900 series radios to the exacting standards insisted upon by major blue–chip companies working in the harshest of conditions throughout the United Kingdom.
