Plug in for safety

Hospitality management, restaurant owners and designers of industrial kitchens understand the importance of having convenient access to plug points, not only in high-temperature cooking areas, but also in food preparation facilities, washing-up bays and in outdoor serving and storage spaces.

Chefs, cleaning staff and waitrons rely on quality electrical fittings that are not only safe to use, but also provide reliable connections for electricity in hot, busy, risky areas. This is where specialists in the industry play a critical role.
