Hull Prison | Hager Energy Distribution
Hager's IP65 rated GRP enclosures were able to provide an ideal fix with minimal disruption to Hull Prison cells.The engineered solutions team developed a specialised consumer unit to circuit protection for Hull Prison cells.
The engineered solutions team developed a specialised consumer unit to provide circuit protection for Hull Prison cells.In addition, the board had to fit into a small footprint and be fast to install to minimise disruption to staff and inmates.The consumer units for the cells are often housed in riser cupboards that also contain water pipes and cisterns. The previous metal units had started to corrode and needed replacing.
With protection against water ingress a priority, Hager supplied its solution with IP65 rated GRP enclosures. In addition, the board had to fit into a small footprint and be fast to install to minimise disruption to staff and inmates.Each consumer unit is split into two pan assemblies to provide separate RCD and MCB protection for two cells. Both assemblies within the board also have an indicator light so that staff can quickly check that there is power supplied to the cells without needing to enter.
