Do you install commercial TV aerial and satellite systems?

Yes, commercial aerial and satellite work can be carried to the highest standard. We are also fully certified IRATA rope access technicians; this means we are fully insured and qualified to use abseiling to access even the most complicated aerial and satellite work. You may have had a quote from another organisation that seemed expensive, this can be because expensive equipment is used rather than abseiling, and there are very few companies within the industry that have this valuable qualification like us. For Doddington Aerials and Satellites this is not a problem, we do not out source work or hire expensive equipment, we already have the skills and qualifications to complete even the most complex of jobs. Check out our video of a commercial TV installation here:
