What is a distribution board?

A distribution board is a component of an electricity supply system. It divides a power feed into subsidiary circuits, as well as offers a protective fuse or circuit breaker. Think of it like a super power board – the main supply cable comes in, and the electricity is distributed to various electrical devices (such as lights or power sockets).

Whether you need a single-phase or 3-phase distribution board, opting to hire rather than buy ensures you secure top-quality systems that don’t break the budget. When you hire from Active Air, you can take full advantage of the following benefits:

Why use distribution boards?

A distribution board is a necessary piece of equipment to evenly distribute power. It divides incoming power into subsidiary circuits and prevents electrical overloads with a circuit breaker or fuse. Whether you are powering an industrial fan or a portable air conditioner, you’ll need an electrical distribution board.  As the industry leader, Active Air can help.

What types of distribution boards do you offer for hire?

Active Air has three types of distribution boards:

  • Single-phase — Simple to operate and common, this is suitable for smaller machinery but lacks the power for heavy industrial motors.
  • 3 Phase distribution board — With three power wires coming into the board there is always a steady stream of power. This is excellent for higher loads typically used by industrial chillers.
  • Powerlock Board — Custom-built to Active Air’s specifications, a powerlock electrical distribution board allows emergency power to be quickly connected in the event of a mains failure.

Along with distribution board hire, we can supply cabling and cable covers to help you run everything smoothly.

How do I choose which distribution board to hire?
