Bespoke power pole specified for Imperial College London scheme
Specialist cable containment manufacturer, Univolt UK, has seen its power pole in a bespoke variation, specified by contractors on site at Imperial College London's latest campus development.
A total of 72 power poles will be fitted across the new building in the unique specification. With the standard square power pole typically measuring 100 x 100, this Univolt product has been designed with a specific RAL colour, in a round surface pole and hexagonal base, with the added feature of a telescopic arm adjusting from 100mm to 400mm for ease of installation and flexibility above the ceiling soffit.
Steve Davis of Univolt explained: “The customer wanted to include 10 single power and data sockets to be fitted under desk height, which couldn’t be achieved with a standard power pole. We proposed the use of a mosaic socket which allowed us to condense all sockets down into the required area, achieving the clients aspirations.
“We’re keen to ensure we meet all of our clients’ needs in all areas of our operation and are seeing a rising demand for bespoke specifications, as was the case here.
“Education and student accommodation are important sectors for our business and our brand is becoming increasingly synonymous with this area of construction. Imperial College London is one of the UK's top ten universities and owns and manages some of the capitals most prestigious buildings. It’s great to be part of their latest portfolio development scheme.”
