Providing temporary site equipment to new build, conversions and refurbishments is an essential part of the construction process. Site lighting is one of the most important of the support services to be installed. Site lighting can be long trailing festoon leads, twin headed tripods, portable work lights, fluorescent or gripper light leads. Some of the site apparatus is static and some of it is designed to be mobile.
The main festoon lighting is designed to be site wide and remain in place while work is in progress. As a safety feature festoon lighting has guards fitted to the lampholders to prevent accidental contact or damage to the lamps. There is a range of non-corrosive 110V fluorescent fittings for ceiling or wall fixing in weathered or damp environments. Some of the smaller lights can be moved around the site to light dark corners within the building. By installing the correct lighting and services, it will ensure that work is carried out effectively and safely. (continued below)
Our site transformers are in everyday use on construction sites to power festoon lights and other 110V equipment. The transformers start from 1.0kVA with 16A outlet for use with a single power tool. Some of the portable transformers come with twin outlets which allows the use of lighting and a power tool simultaneously.
The smaller transformers can be plugged straight into a 13A wall socket and used almost anywhere. They quickly increase in size to power large sites and come with multiple 16A and 32A outlets. Placed in a central position they are ideal to provide all the site equipment with sufficient power and lighting. As work progresses transformers and site gear can easily be relocated or removed from site altogether.
The use of splitter boxes is common on building sites and an indispensable part of the site support range of products. They are available in both 110V and 240V versions with five metre leads and plug. When plugged into a site transformer they become a wandering lead with at least four power outlets. This provides a facility for more leads to branch off in several directions and power site apparatus in other areas. Alternatively they can be used to simply power an extensive range of tools in a single area.
There is a range of fourteen metre extension leads with a site plug on one end and a site socket on the other. These can be coupled together if required to extend splitter boxes and other equipment. This type of temporary installation can quickly and easily be installed and just as easily be removed when no longer needed.
