Pop Up Power Supplies® launches new and improved In-Ground Unit at Civils Expo 2016

Pop Up Power Supplies® are excited to launch their new range of Flip Lid Power Units at this year’s Civils Expo, part of UK Construction Week 2016.

Featuring a new and improved design, with a new hydraulic system to open the lid, a sturdier case, and a more practical arrangement for the power sockets and cables within the unit, the new In-Ground Unit from Pop Up Power Supplies® is an important development for the company.

George Parker, Director at Pop Up Power Supplies®, commented, “We are always trying to introduce more innovative products to the market, and after some constructive feedback from various contractors and installers we decided to improve upon our popular flip lid units.

Our IGUs have been installed throughout the UK at locations such as local markets, heritage sites, parks, town centres, football stadiums, universities and other outdoor events. The fact that they can be operated with the lid locked down and with only the power cable protruding means they are perfect for outdoor events as they pose minimal risk to the general public.”

Pop Up Power Supplies’® new In-Ground Units provide round-the-clock power for days, weeks or even months on end and minimises the potential for damage owing to vandalism and harsh weather with the power supply safely locked away. The recessed lid accepts paving or any other infill to blend in with the surrounding area meaning they are sensitive to the local surroundings, which is particularly useful for heritage sites.

The Flip Lid Power Units are manufactured from BS EN 10025 S275 JR high-grade structural steel plate to ensure longevity and stability under load. They are also galvanised to BS EN ISO 1461 to guarantee 55 micron minimum average zinc coating. The units are suitable for use in areas with light vehicle traffic, and tested to EN124 B125 load classification.

Pop Up Power Supplies® can be found at stand number C3/540 at Civils Expo 2016. Part of UK Construction Week, it is the biggest construction trade event seen for years in the UK bringing together product manufacturers, architects, contractors, specifiers, designers and many more construction professionals. It is taking place at the Birmingham NEC from 18 – 20 October 2016.

Pop Up Power Supplies® have a range of retractable service units that provide a safe, secure and silent outdoor power supply.
