Good design for the public realm can often be undermined by the practical need to provide access to power, water and other services; Pop Up Power Supplies® recognises this and can address it.
This is particularly the case in pedestrianised high streets, plazas, squares and marketplaces, as well as parks and the grounds of large buildings.
UK company Pop Up Power Supplies offers a fresh perspective on balancing visual appeal with safe, secure services access; its range of elegantly designed power bollards, which are often referred to as utility bollards or service bollards, gives architects, town centre managers, facilities managers and local authority specifiers the opportunity to develop their public spaces in a way that maximises visual appeal, instead of having to choosing more functional, utilitarian feeder pillars.
Power bollards can provide between 220 and 400 volts and up to 125A of power, with the standard configuration being 2, 4, 6 or 8 CEE sockets offering 16/32A with protection.
In addition to electricity, the bollards can be specified to provide access to sound systems, water supplies, gas, compressed air systems, RJ jacks, voice/data connections and audio/video connectors. The design can also incorporate an LED light diffuser.
With a stainless steel encasement, the power bollards from Pop Up Power Supplies come in four contemporary designs, with three standard diameters available.
For impressive visual appeal, the power bollards are available in crude, brushed or mirror polished finishes and can be colour matched by powder coating in any RAL colour or custom painted, including with logos or airbrushed.
George Parker, Director of Pop Up Power Supplies®, commented: “Our power bollards are designed to provide a reliable and efficient outdoor power supply in a bollard format that is pleasing on the eye.
“The stainless steel bollards are elegant in design to match other street furniture but compact enough to avoid adding clutter in busy public areas and pedestrian routes, and even making their own statement as a design feature.”
Pop Up Power Supplies® offers specialist specification and design support for the provision of utilities and services to outdoor spaces using its range of power bollards, with detailed technical datasheets available to download via its website.
