- Watertight floor box can be installed in hard floor and raised floor areas delivering power and data to where it is required and eliminating the trip hazard of trailing cables.
- Watertight floor box for paving allows the box to be flush-mounted in floors with all types of paving such as porcelain stoneware, terrazzo paving, ceramic tiling, and more.
- The outlet is available with a standard locking mechanism or with a security lock which prevents unwanted access to the floor box.
Gromtec Europe has worked with Next, John Lewis, Wimbledon Tennis Club and many more major brands across the UK, but the floor box can be installed in almost any public or private place including department stores, airports, train stations, car showrooms, shopping centres, conference halls, hotels, museums, terraces, gardens, hospitals and sport centres. As the floor box is designed as an occasional power socket, it is ideal for pop-up applications such as display stands, exhibition areas or cleaners sockets. In addition, Gromtec Europe also supplies a range of specialist mini floor boxes for general construction projects.
Available in two finishes – brushed stainless steel and brass, waterproof SIMONBOX floor boxes are also offered in a flush floor and a trimmed box finish. The raised floor version is secured in place using fastening hooks during installation. The recessed tray fixes the box in place and conceals any installation defects.
The box includes a protective film that stops any dirt from getting inside and damaging the box surface before and during installation. For paving installations, it is possible to install a group of boxes to provide several connection points, furthermore, a drainage pipe can be installed to drain away any possible moisture that enters the box.
The SIMONBOX is CE branded, compiles with the international standard CEI-670 for casings, can withstand temperatures of -25°C a + 60°C, and can tolerate a maximum load of 1000kg when closed and 170kg when open. The UKCA marking will be applied in 2022.
