Why You Should Choose Under-Floor Power for Your Industrial Facility

When you commission an industrial facility, you need to think about maximum efficiency as you design and install. After all, the business will need to maintain high levels of production if it is to be cost-efficient, and work needs to proceed with minimal disruption. However, you need to configure the building with safety in mind as well, especially when it comes to the electrical installation. If you are planning to develop such a facility, why should you think about installing underfloor bus bars instead of the conventional approach?

Modern-Day Approach

Many factories or warehouses of old rely on cabling to connect all the electrical equipment. This would need to be carefully installed in and around moving equipment or racking, and in the worst-case scenario, it could prove dangerous in the event of an accident. Further, this type of cabling would look unsightly and could suffer due to adverse environmental conditions or be vulnerable to damage.

Choosing Bus Bars

It is much better in this scenario to install the power underfloor using a sequence of modular bus bars.

Hidden Efficiency

If you're not familiar with this approach, the engineer will install individual strips of copper within a metallic box, running from the transformer across the facility floor. They'll attach numerous units to feed electricity to the floor boxes, which they will place adjacent to individual items of machinery, lighting stanchions, or other equipment. These units can be added or removed at will and with minimal disruption, and you will need less cabling to achieve the same result.

Benefits of Bus Bars

Underfloor electrical systems are highly efficient and use much less space. They are much easier to install, and you can adapt them at a moments notice should you need to introduce an additional piece of equipment. Furthermore, power can be distributed more effectively through these bus bars, as there is very little voltage drop across the entire run.

Drawing Up Your Installation

While your plans are on the drawing board, talk with an industrial electrician about your installation. They'll be able to help you design an underfloor system, using modular bus bars laid out in a grid configuration. You'll be able to place your equipment in the most logical position and be able to tap into the power with little additional work. As you expand, you'll be able to add any electrical feed with ease and won't have to worry about further installation, downtime, or inefficiency.
