Powering outdoor areas throughout 2018 – a busy year for Pop Up Power Supplies®

Pop Up Power Supplies® is proving to be a real success story in the design and supply of an outdoor power supply. Architects, Contractors, Electrical Engineers, Council Planners, Stadium Designers and other construction professionals appreciate the simplicity and effectiveness of the range of Pop Up Power Units.

Available in three formats – Pop Up Power Units, In Ground Units and Power Bollards, the ranges of power units provide electricity points in a discreet manner, and importantly are sensitive to local surroundings.

Powering built up environments

Pop Up Units

The Pop Up Units, often referred to as Electrical Feeder Pillars, are installed in the ground so the tops of the units sit flush with ground level. When the power units are needed, operators simply raise the power units with a detachable handle, and then plug nearby stalls and electrical equipment into the available power sockets.

When the units are no longer needed they are lowered back into the ground, therefore posing no on-going risk to the public, as well as keeping the units safe from weather elements and vandalism.

They provide power sockets ranging from 16A to 125A power supply in both single and three phase, all with RCBO protection.  Housed within sturdy concrete and cast iron casings, the power units are simply lowered into position (with only light excavation needed to dig the hole).

In Ground Power Units

The range of innovative In Ground Units can be operated with the lid locked down.  This means they can provide a stable power supply to outdoor markets and stalls preventing any public access and reducing trip hazards. Thus increasing safety in public places.

The power sockets are safely located within the high-grade mild steel structure, which is hot dip galvanised to BS EN: ISO1461.

Our Flip Lid Power Units have been specified on many construction projects throughout 2019. Notable projects include the Al Mouj Muscat beachfront resort in Oman, where a total of 56 of the power units were installed within the luxury mixed-use complex. They provided an effective power source for outdoor events, stalls and kiosks around the hotel perimeter.

Powering built up environments

Another highlight was supplying a number of In Ground Units to an events area outside a new Travelodge Hotel, located on the Southwater Square leisure complex, Telford. The events area is adjacent to the Travelodge Hotel, and surrounded by various coffee shops, restaurants and shops for visitors. As a result, developers of the new build construction required an outdoor power source that would power various events e.g. promotional stalls and kiosks, that was safe for nearby pedestrians, which is why they turned to the In Ground Units.

Power Bollards

Pop Up Power Supplies® supply a range of power supply bollards in elegant street furniture designs, providing a safe power supply for outdoor areas.

We supply in various configurations and finishes – with three different diameters available; four configurations for the tops, including Parc Paris Top, Domed Top, Button Top and Sloping Top; and also available in a powder painted RAL colour, mirrored finish or custom paint finishes.

We work closely with some of the UK’s leading contractors, architects, civil engineers, electrical engineers and other industry professionals creating bespoke outdoor power solutions for their external area project.
