Flex7 lighting connection and control products were recently installed in unique new motorway services on the M5. Gloucester Services, operated by the Westmorland family is a £40m project, situated between junction 11a and 12, has no franchises, and focuses on sourcing everything locally.  Food is prepared by skilled chef’s onsite, with a farm shop selling local produce also on site.

The pre-fabricated, plug and play philosophy of the flex7 System allowed for quick and simple installation. Single Socket Outlets and eZeBox Extender Units were connected with pre-wired plugs to save time on site.

flex7 eZeBox Units are 16A rated, 7-pole and are available in 2, 4, 6, 8, 10 and 12 ways. The modular nature of the system means that changes can be made at any time, as and when user needs change.

Occupancy lighting controls were included in the WC areas. These ensure that lights will only remain on when needed.

Westmorland, the company behind the services place a great emphasis on connecting with the local community. Produce is sourced from 130 suppliers within a 30 mile radius of the site.  

The company work closely with their charity partners Gloucester Gateway Trust and over the next 20 years will donate £10 million of their profit to chosen local charities.
