KIRK Wireless Telephones
Polycom offers a broad portfolio of KIRK wireless telephones ranging from a sleek, lightweight model geared to the general office to highly durable and intrinsically safe handsets.
The KIRK 5040 handset, the newest addition to the KIRK product line, is a lightweight DECT phone that combines award-winning design with intuitive user interface and wireless headset that can be operated hands-free and wirelessly with a Bluetooth headset. Like the KIRK 5020, the 5040 can quickly be switched to silent mode and will distinguish between external and internal calls by ring tone. The KIRK 5040 handset also features an intuitive user interface and a large colour-display offering an experience similar to a mobile phone and with the added benefit of hands-free operation.

With the introduction of the KIRK 5040, our customers have the option of using a lightweight, stylish handset with an extended battery life, which allows them to move freely about the office while staying in touch whether they prefer to use the telephone itself or communicate using a headset.”
