Why Our Temporary Power Boards?

Compliance

Our temporary power meets are one of the most compliant and up to date boards on the market. Meeting the following standards.

New updates to the AS/NZS 61439.4

Are your boards compliant? With the announcement of new updates to the AS/NZS 61439.4, in effect May 2021, Design Switchboards and Distribution immediately jumped into R&D to ensure their temporary power board range met the rigorous requirements.

The most important change to the standard is the temperature rise testing of boards. To verify to AS/NZ 61439.4, boards must be temperature rise tested to ensure that all components can operate within the individual specified temperature ratings while considering heat generated within the board. An additional requirement is that all boards are rated at a minimum of IP 44.

Currently, they are one of few companies on the market offering fully compliant temporary power boards for construction sites. Martin Evans, Design Switchboards and Distribution representative, supports initiatives to increase compliance in electrical product manufacturing.

Feature Packed

The result of our R&D venture was an IP44 temporary power board packed with features.   Consequently, it’s proving to be popular on some of Queensland’s biggest projects.

We have created temporary power boards designed with the contractor in mind. The boards are completely wired and can be unloaded and set up on any construction site in less than a minute.  Best of all, no access to the board is required.

We have a range of single-phase or three-phase DSD Temporary Powerboards. Available custom features such as extra GPOs and light brackets make it a versatile board.

Lightweight, portable to any site, easy to manoeuvre into position with stands that are easy to dismantle for storing between jobs and highly robust.  It’s completely compliant with AS/NZS3012:2010 ensuring a safe and secure work site for contractors of all trades.

Major Projects Compatible and Customisable

The result of this impressive new feature-packed temporary power board is that contractors are enjoying its versatility.

Partnering with Haymans Electrical, to provide a temporary power solution to the $3.6B Queen’s Wharf Brisbane development was a big milestone, proving R&D to be a valuable investment.
