We always recommend that the person installing, modifying or removing Powertrack has read and understood our User and Safety Guidance information. We would advise a specific risk assessment is undertaken to identify and mitigate any safety risks.

Are the modules tough enough for site?
Extremely! Powertrack modules are rated IP65 IP2X, so they are highly resistant to dust and low water pressure. They can also take heavy loads (site traffic) and we advise up to 5000kg single point load for standard modules and 300kg single point load for lighting modules. Powertrack is made from high grade virgin polyurethane and is designed to be used on project after project.
Being floor run, how will I access underfloor services?

Powertrack Value for Money

Powertrack can be leased or purchased. The great benefit of our leases is that they come with a 3-month end of project purchase option.

Is Powertrack good value for money?
It’s excellent value for money. With conventional temps you place an order on almost every project with the value of this order increasing significantly through the course of the project due to call outs and variations. With Powertrack you’re leasing or purchasing a system that you will own, meaning that after your initial investment your only costs associated with Powertrack is our £5.00 reuse service, no call outs, no variations, no damages to ceilings or fire stopping, just savings to gained.

The original Powertrack business (Novus48) was purchased by Ten 47 Ltd. in April 2023. Ten 47 was established in 2001 and is based on Kirkcaldy, Scotland. In addition to Powertrack Ten 47 offers a wide range of products including circular multipin connectors, cable assemblies, single pole power connectors and electricity network connection devices along with an expanding range of cable protector ramps.
How does the cost of Powertrack differ to conventional site temps?
When you place and order for conventional site temps you’re paying for a service that will increase in cost through out your project, then come the end of the project the conventional site temps are stripped out, thrown away and you then repeat this process on project after project getting nothing back on your spend.
When you purchase Powertrack you’re not only investing in site temps on your project but your making an investment for your next seven or eight projects as our system is designed to be reused again and again, saving you small fortune on site temps. It worth also noting that Powertrack will give you cost certainty as you’ll face no variations or call out cost with our product.
