Safe, reliable power supply units, which are there when you need them and hidden when you don’t, enable universities and colleges to fully utilise their outdoor space across the campus to deliver successful student recruitment events, open days and other events to engage the local community.
Retractable, pop up power units and in-ground power units from UK company Pop Up Power Supplies® can be installed in any outdoor space, such as plazas and courtyards, pedestrianised streets, gardens and lawns, to give on demand access to power, as well as water, gas and data if required.
With so much choice and competition for students, it is crucial that universities and colleges make the perfect impression during open days, so making the whole campus safe and accessible is key. Traditional methods of powering stalls, booths and food outlets at outdoor events usually involve having trailing wires from nearby buildings or petrol generators. This, however, poses significant safety risks with the scope for trip and electrocution hazards for staff and visitors.
Pop Up Power Supplies® manufacture and supply a range of pop up power units that are perfect for powering open days within university campuses. This range includes retractable pop up power units that are raised from the ground when required, and then simply lowered back into the ground when not. The recessed lid accommodates which ever ground surface is needed, whether it be paving stones, tarmac or grass.
An additional on-demand power solution which reduces clutter in busy areas and maximises safety and security is Pop Up Power Supplies®’ range of in ground power units. Ideal for unattended use, these can provide an outdoor power supply with the lid locked down, after power points have been connected. This flip lid solution is available in six options to cater for all types of project capable of providing a total supply of up to 125 amps.
By using a retractable or in ground power unit, universities, colleges and their facilities managers can keep walkways and pedestrian access clear from obstructions for the majority of time, such as during routine term-time.
Amongst the universities to already benefit is Exeter University, who used the PUPS01 pop up power units for the communal space outside their Forum building.
