Today we’re excited to share the latest Tait Tough story with you: our radios were part of the world’s longest canyoning expedition!

In Spring 2016 a group of 8 professional Canyoneers from around the world gathered in Taiwan to set a new milestone in expedition canyoning. It was an epic 8-day mission where the group explored the Malishan Canyon. They started with limited information from satellite pictures, a map that was rarely updated, and a few stories from locals. The team completed the mission, becoming the first to ever achieve a canyon descent of that length.

On September 29, 2015, Tait Communications organized its first Rugby Night in London in celebration of the Rugby World Cup 2015.

The greatest motivation for physiological monitoring technology is to prevent occupational loss of life. Tait has integrated physiological monitoring into our critical communications solutions, where firefighters and other workers in dangerous environments can be monitored.

But rather than talk about physiological monitoring as part of a critical communications solution, we have been taking it out into the field. Two of our in-field tests were firefighter stair climbs, simulating real life activity – well, minus the actual burning building!

On 23 May 2015, undeterred by driving rain and chilling Auckland temperatures, a team of Tait Tough employees showcased their support for fire services and Leukaemia & Blood Cancer New Zealand (LBC) at the Firefighter Sky Tower Stair Challenge.

Now in its 11th year, the Stair Challenge invites firefighters from around the world to raise funds and awareness for LBC by racing up 51 floors (all 1,103 steps) of the Sky Tower wearing full firefighting kit weighing 25kg.

LBC is New Zealand’s national charity dedicated to supporting patients and their families living with blood cancers like leukaemia and related blood conditions.
