About Pop Up Power Supplies® Ltd

Pop Up Power Supplies® Ltd offer a range of outdoor Retractable Utility Points which supply electricity, water and data points to outdoor spaces, public places and urban landscapes.

The power units are available in the form of Pop Up Power Units, In-Ground or Flip Lid Units, and Power Bollards. These retractable telescopic feeder pillars are ideal for various outdoor spaces such as town centres, markets, heritage sites, festivals, universities, sports stadiums, urban areas, holiday park sites, and park areas.

Pop Up Power Supplies® work closely with architects, town planners, developers, specifiers, stadium designers, festival organisers, contractors and other industry professionals. We can provide technical data, product information, design ideas and more, and are able to advise on a suitable pop up power unit for your project.

Our range of pop up power sockets are preferred among architects, town centre planners, local councils and market organisers due to their retractable nature. When they are needed they are raised out of the ground and provide a safe, secure and reliable outdoor power source, and when they are not needed they are simply lowered back into the ground. The In-Ground / Flip Lid Units can even be operated with the lid locked down, making them a popular choice for town centre areas.

The lids for the pop up power units are also recessed meaning they can accommodate various infills and can match the surface finish to its environment. So when they are lowered into the ground you wouldn’t even notice they are there.

Pop Up Units
A versatile range of retractable service units to suit every location. We offer a wide range of Outdoor Pop up plug sockets to suit most venues, dependent on usage and type of supply. The POP UP units are manufactured in stainless steel AISI304 and have an epoxy-polyester powder finish. Tops are available in stainless steel or cast iron.

The adaptability of our Pop up power sockets makes them suitable for all outdoor environments. The “Pop Up” feature of the units improves the quality and safety of the surrounding area.

Our Pop Up Power Units provide an outdoor power supply to many projects throughout the UK, including Wembley Arena Square, Covent Garden, Edinburgh Castle, The University of Exeter and many more locations. The pop up electrical sockets provide safe, silent, secure power to outdoor places.

Power Bollards
Our bollards provide a reliable and efficient outdoor power supply, in bollard format. The stainless steel bollards are elegant in design for street furniture, and provide a power supply for outdoor events.

A stainless steel bollard can provide between 220 and 400 volts and 125A of power. They are available with standard configurations plus additional equipment is available.

Our power distribution units are located throughout the UK providing reliable and safe power to outdoor events.

In-Ground Units / Flip Lid Units
Flip-open units for continuous unattended use. The In Ground Units IGU provides round-the-clock power for days, weeks or even months on end. It minimises the potential for damage owing to vandalism and harsh weather because it operates unattended with the lid locked down, with only the power cable protruding.

In Ground Units can be used in smaller spaces to supply an outdoor power supplyand telephone connection. They have a double locking lid and can be operated with lid locked down. The lids are raised manually and are gas strut assisted.

Pop Up Power Supplies'® range of IGUs complement their retractable telescopic feeder pillars and steel bollards, to offer a large range of outdoor pop up sockets and become your one-stop-shop for all your outdoor power requirements.



Pop Up Power Supplies® provide a secure and sensitive outdoor power source to Grade 1 Listed Chiswick House

The Chiswick House and Gardens Trust required an outdoor power source for the gardens area within the Grade 1 Listed site. They needed an outdoor power supply for various events they held throughout the year for visitors, however they did not want permanent units impacting on the beautiful aesthetics of the protected site.

The Trust contacted Pop Up Power Supplies®, who recommended the PUPS01 pop up power unit. The beauty of these power units is their sheer simplicity – the units offer a secure, stable power source and can be raised when needed and lowered back into the ground when not needed.

George Parker, Director at Pop Up Power Supplies®, commented, “When Chiswick House and Gardens Trust contacted us requesting an outdoor power supply, I spoke to them about our range of pop up power units. These units
are simple to install and only require a small digger to create the opening in the ground. This was important to the Trust as it meant there was minimal disruption to the gardens.”

The retractable telescopic feeder pillars supply a safe and reliable power source to seasonal events at the Burlington Pavilion within the grounds at Chiswick House. The units provide either a 16A or 32A power supply in both single and three phase sockets, all with RCBO protection.
Council Planners opt for Flip Lid Power Units to power their market days in Stamford

Pop Up Power Supplies® supplied their range of Flip Lid Power Units to the town of Stamford, Lincolnshire, to provide a safe, secure and discreet outdoor power supply for market stalls.

An important consideration for Council Planners for Stamford was that they required a stable, effective power source for outdoor stalls on market days which then could be lowered back into the ground to preserve the beauty and integrity of the historic town.

Pop Up Power Supplies® were contacted, and recommended their range of In-Ground Power Units. Manufactured in high-grade mild steel, and hot dip galvanised to BS EN:ISO1461, these outdoor power units were perfect for the market days at Stamford. Prior to these units, outdoor stalls were embroiled in unsightly trailing cables that were a hazard to not just the workers but the general public as well, not to mention the risk of electrocution too. The new Flip Lid Units can power the outdoor stalls safely as the lids are closed and locked down, preventing any public access.

Another benefit of the Flip Lid Power Units provided by Pop Up Power Supplies® is the fact they have such a limited impact on the surroundings. The covers of the power units are recessed so they can accommodate various paving and other surface material infill. They are also tested unfilled to FACTA Class B loadings.

The Council Planners were pleased with the performance of the In-Ground Units, as not only did they benefit from a safe source of outdoor electricity for the local market stalls, but also there was minimal impact on the integrity and beauty of the local area.
Pop Up Power Supplies® top of the league at Chelsea Football Club

They specified the retractable telescopic feeder pillars from Pop Up Power Supplies® within the stadium arena, which provided a secure, silent and efficient power supply for the UV lighting equipment.

Installed by Springfield Engineers over a six week time-frame, the Chelsea ground staff now have access to multiple 63A three-phase IP67 sockets, all with RCBO protection.

The beauty of the pop up power units are that when they are not in use they are simply lowered back into the ground, and a section of turf is laid over the lid to give a seamless appearance to the pitch area.

The units provide a safe and secure outdoor power supply to marquees used for weddings and corporate events.

George Parker, Director of Pop Up Power Supplies® commented, “Aberdeen University is famous for its beautiful architecture and because of this they didn’t want power units around the campus being a permanent feature. Our pop up units were recommended as they provide the necessary outdoor power supply for their sporting events, and when they aren’t in use they are simply retracted into the ground by turning a handle.”

The pop up electric sockets are constructed using stainless steel and concrete and have a total weight of 450kg each. The cover units are made of stainless steel AISI304 and offer substantial protection to the power units when they are fully retracted.

The PUPS3030 Floorbox was the power unit of choice and eight units were installed in the open area outside the main shopping building. The power floorbox from Pop Up Power Supplies® was ideal for the Developers’ requirements as it has a small visible profile due to their covers being filled with the same paving material as the surrounding area.

Not only do the PUPS3030 Floorboxes provide a safe and secure power source, but the models fitted next to a vertical garden wall also provided a water connection so that maintenance staff were able to connect hoses for the watering system.

The PUPS Floorbox is ideal for areas where space is a premium. It operates with the lid locked down and closed, and can be left unattended when in use so there is no danger of any interference or vandalism.
