2 Years of the Heavy Duty Handset

Apr 22, 2021 | News

​It’s been over two years since the launch of our most robust handset, the HDH (Heavy Duty Handset) – in that short time, even with a global pandemic, we’ve seen the HDH installed in thousands of locations around the world. To celebrate we thought we’d share some of our favourite HDH case studies with you.

Statue of Liberty – New York City

Visited by millions of tourists each year, the Statue of Liberty is one of the most highly treasured monuments on the globe. Located alongside the statue on Liberty Island is the Statue of Liberty Museum where you’ll find our Heavy Duty Handsets fitted with custom branding labels.

The Hold, Suffolk Archives – Ipswich

The Hold in Ipswich is a large project that utilises our HDH alongside the newest addition to our handset range, a cable retraction device called the ‘Recoiler’. Paired alongside a HDH, the Recoiler automatically retracts the armoured cable when not in use.

Bletchley Park – Milton Keynes

Bletchley Park is a well known and much loved historical site in the UK thanks to its storied history as the centre of Allied code-breaking during WW2. Here a number of AutoPlay audio points featuring the Heavy Duty Handset and SoundClip-2 were installed. The unit is slightly unique as we altered the armoured cable length to suit the space available.
