Power Supply Bollards – elegant street furniture providing an effective outdoor power supply

12 Dec 2018

Utility bollards are a common sight in public areas across the UK, providing temporary services and utilities to streets, squares and other urban and outdoor areas. As well as offering protection for pedestrians, their purpose is to provide a source of electricity, water and data points for outdoor events.

Pop Up Power Supplies® supply a range of Power Bollards which provide a safe and secure outdoor power source with architectural appeal. The stainless steel bollards are available in various elegant designs and configurations, and have been specified across the UK and the rest of the world by Architects, Contractors, Civil and Electrical Engineers, and other industry professionals.

Power Bollards for outdoor spaces

Our Power Supply Bollards are constructed using the finest AISI 304 stainless steel AISI 316 with a plate thickness of 2mm. This means the structures are of robust and hard-wearing quality that give Contractors and Architects confidence that the power units will last for years to come.

Available in three popular diameters of 250mm, 325mm and 500mm, Pop Up Power Supplies® range of Power Supply Bollards have four top configurations – Parc Paris Top, Domed Top, Button Top and Sloping Top. This is to ensure their aesthetics blend in with a wide range of environments, from market squares, to car parks, to historic streets.

George Parker, Director of Pop Up Power Supplies, comments, “Our Power Bollards are a popular option for outdoor spaces across the UK. We work closely with Architects and Electrical Engineers to create bespoke configurations that completely suit the client’s specification.

When we were approached by Planners at Gravesham Borough Council, they wanted an outdoor power supply for an area outside the local civic centre, for various outdoor festivals and other events. We ran through their requirements and were able to configure a range of Button Top Supply Bollards with hatch closure.

Our team was also able to advise on the best location for the power units which was around the perimeter area next to the walls. This meant they had a limited impact on the aesthetics of the local area, but still carefully positioned so stalls and other kiosks could connect easily.”
