What Qualities Make For A Good Power Distribution System?

At Rubber Box, we pride ourselves on being market leaders when it comes to power distro boxes. Part of the way we do this is by catering to customer demand, and making sure that every single one of our distros is up to standard.

The 3 main requirements of a good electrical power distribution system are:

  1. Safety
  2. Efficiency
  3. Reliability

So that’s the main points covered – allow us to explain in a bit more detail!

Safety Is A Priority For Rubber Box

safety around electricity

We can’t overstate the emphasis we place on safety here at Rubber Box. Given the powerful and even potentially lethal nature of mains electrical supplies, if our products aren’t safe, they’re not fit for purpose. It’s as simple as that. now, even the most well-designed power systems aren’t always invulnerable to the occasional power outage – to the extent that no matter your industry or event, we’d still always recommend having an action plan in place, just to be on the safe side. Power cuts can happen due to human error (for example, if someone plugs in an appliance with a higher power rating than the socket), or due to more unpredictable factors such as fallen power lines elsewhere.

In fact, more often than not, power outages are the direct result of the safety measures designed into power distribution systems. A fuse is an excellent example of this. To explain it very briefly, when it detects an unsafe current running through it, the fuse reacts by self-destructing. This breaks the dangerous circuit and protects human users. This inherent safety is designed and built into every product we manufacture here at Rubber Box, but upon request we can sometimes fit additional safety systems like RCDs and MCDs (which you can read more about here).

The Efficiency Of Our Power Distros


Another thing that any quality power distro needs to do is manage the power in an efficient way. The biggest generator in the world would come down to nothing if the power it supplied wasn’t managed efficiently by the distribution system. There are plenty of problems associated with inefficient systems – for example, they could result in technical difficulties, surges and shortages, and skyrocketing energy costs. The costs are often a particular problem: the sheer scale of many events means that energy inefficiencies can quickly cause budgets to shoot out of control. At Rubber Box, all of our products meet the very highest standards of efficiency, and ensuring this is just one of the many ways we’re able to guarantee consistent quality to our customers.

We Guarantee Reliability Of Our Rubber Boxes

High on the list of concerns with any power distribution system, and closely related to efficiency, is its reliability. Event organisers must be able to have unwavering faith in the ability of the system to consistently and reliably provide power. If it’s not doing so, it’s essentially failing in its primary goal, which would render it almost literally useless. Frequent power outages or unreliable systems can not only cost time and money, but in extreme cases can even damage brands, costing business in the long term as well. At Rubber Box, your reputation matters to us – not to mention your stress levels! We are completely confident in the ability of our products to provide secure, consistent and reliable power, allowing you to focus on the more pressing day-to-day tasks.
