Palazzoli’s Alupres wall mounted heavy duty 3-phase 415V interlock power outlets have been approved for use by London Underground Limited (LUL), and been given the reference number ID 1217.

Engineers and contractors can now specify and install the IP67 watertight aluminium enclosures with confidence throughout the London Underground network and stations, above and below the surface.

Alupres sockets have been designed and manufactured for heavy duty application in tunnels, hazardous area environments and general outlets. Fully compliant with LUL standard 1-085 A3, they have a protection rating of IP66/67 and impact resistance in excess of IK10. They are available with or without additional localised circuit protection and join Lewden Palazzoli’s utility metal clad 110V power socket range, already approved under LUL ID136.

“This is an important third party recognition for Alupres, and we are delighted to have our product approved by London Underground under its Approved Product Register (APR), as only the products that have passed through its rigorous approval process can be commissioned for their network,” said Lewden’s business development manager, Guy Birchall.
