Read our case study from Forbo Flooring at Ripley, where we helped solve their communications problems using Hytera Digital Radio Systems.


Zycomm recently completed an installation for Forbo Flooring Systems, a leading global player in high-quality, commercial floor coverings who have a large site in Ripley, Derbyshire. 

Forbo had been struggling for coverage with their previous radio set-up across their site and requested that Zycomm carry out a site survey. After carrying out the survey we suggested that they use a Hytera Digital System that incorporated two repeaters and would give extended coverage throughout their site.  Each repeater can carry out two conversations on two separate channels at any one time, which means four different calls on independent channels across the two repeaters at any one time.  

This system provided Forbo Flooring with a perfect solution for communicating across their various departments. 

Forbo currently have display radios in use to be able to facilitate private calling to the non-display radios and also the emergency alarm feature enabled giving the staff the ability to raise an alarm and the display radio to be able to see who raised the alarm. The display radios also allow for text messaging and the ability to be able to disarm radios if required. 

Forbo Floorings Stuart Burgin said of the work “Excellent service throughout the process from sales to Installation. Great products which have significantly improved communication and safety around our plant”
