We produce a wide range of specialist standard products for the Building Services sector, which are targeted at industrial projects usually where there is a requirement for a high IP rating or robust enclosure construction. We produce products for 110V, 230V and 400V applications. Many standard products are held in stock at our Customer Service Centres and other products are made to order.
Blakley Electrics Event products are designed to address the key industry requirements of providing very high levels of electrical protection coupled with rapid installation times and safe, easy handling between venues.
Blakley Electrics rail products have been used for many years by both over and under ground rail services. We have products designed for use in many rail locations including: stations; along the trackside; within tunnels and in depots / maintenance sheds. We design products that are project specific but we also have repeat products that are supplied on a very regular basis.
Blakley Electrics provides products for all of the armed services including: 50Hz, 400Hz and DC power supplies for Aircraft Hangars; Dockside Service Units and Ship to Shore supplies within Naval Dockyards; Temporary 110V Lighting and Temporary Power Equipment at 28V DC, 110V AC, 230V AC and 400V AC for Tier 1 and 2 Army camps; fixed, high current power distribution equipment for Tier 3 Army camps.
Blakley Electrics have supplied standard and bespoke products for use on Nuclear sites across the UK for many years. Where applicable, products comply with the latest Sellafield specifications and all products provide the high performance demanded by British Nuclear sites.
A HOT site is a high voltage installation (400kV, 132kV, 33kV, etc.) where the Earth Potential Rise (EPR) that can occur during an earth fault can exceed 430V. For installations at these sites, there is a risk that the EPR could be exported onto the HV or LV network and into a consumer’s premises, where it could cause danger to life or damage to property. Please note that all National Grid sites are generally classified as HOT.
Large industrial complexes often have a requirement for multiple voltages around a plant, whether for ad hoc maintenance or planned shutdowns. As an alternative to installing fixed Power Clusters at strategic locations around a site, it is sometimes more economic, particularly on established sites, to adopt mobile distribution assemblies, which can plug into existing 400V sockets.
In order to enhance on-site safety, Blakley Electrics have produced a series of Mains Distribution Assemblies (MDAs) fitted with test sockets, which enable a range of installation tests to be carried out “live” and with a very high degree of safety. The fitting of test sockets eliminates the need to remove shield plates or terminal covers and allows essential testing of RCDs and the measurement of earth fault loop impedance, etc., to be carried out safely and with minimal disruption to a project.
When it comes to designing and manufacturing special distribution assemblies, Blakley have unrivalled experience in the design and manufacture of transformer, protection and distribution assemblies for permanent and temporary installations.
