Over the last few months we have been hard at work increasing stocks to support both our own projects and the dry hire requirements of our customers. Around £750,000 has been spent on top quality hardware that will provide many years of reliable service. All cabling has been made with tough black H07 cable and fitted with either CEE Form or Power Lock connectors, and the distribution units have been manufactured and supplied by Distro Design.

We now have an available hire inventory of more than 80km of mains cabling consisting of both single and three phase options, in 16A, 32A, 63A, 125A, 200A, 400A and 600A variants. The 200A Power Lock range is new for 2022, with sets stocked in 5m, 10m, 25m and 50m lengths. All cabling is colour coded and labelled with length and ID details and has been electrically tested and logged on our barcode-based inventory system.
