Power Control Rooms

Power Control Rooms

Power Control Rooms are designed and built to withstand the most challenging environments. Our unique interlocking panel concept provides exceptional protection against the elements, exceptional structural strength and minimum weight. Exterior panels are constructed of galvanized steel and finished with an electrostatic powdercoat paint, resulting in exceptional corrosion resistance in the field.






In many cases, Power Control Rooms (PCRs**) are the only logical approach to specifying and installing electrical distribution equipment. Compared to site-built alternatives, PCRs offer:
 - greater cost efficiency
 - integrated design, construction and installation
 - factory-built quality control
 - complete testing and inspection
 - reduced construction and installation hassles

Sacrifice nothing for this simplicity and efficiency. You specify what you need and we build, deliver and install exactly that.
