Choosing the Right Sockets or Connections for Your Own Light Fittings
You can use your own light fittings systems on your stands. However, it is your responsibility to ensure that the system, or any pre-fabricated wiring, complies with the EVA regulations and has been inspected and tested by a competent electrician prior to use. It should be noted that all connections to your own fittings must be carried out by Full Circle Events & Exhibitions Ltd. You should also carry a quantity of spare lamps, as maintenance to your own light fittings is NOT included in any socket or connection costs. Current venue regulations state that connections must not exceed 1200w.
All your own light fittings must have a short tail (1.5mm2 cable or flex), together with a connector block and an insulated enclosure box to each connection. Failure to comply with these requirements will result in additional charges on site.
Before ordering the socket or connection for you own lights, please consider the following, to ensure that you order the correct supply:
- When using lights on a track, add the total wattage of all the lamps together to give you the correct rated socket or connection.
- Individual light fittings can be pre-wired together prior to arriving at the exhibition hall, provided that a qualified electrician carries it out. However, you should give careful consideration as to how you fix your fittings to your stand once they have been pre-wired. Again, add the total wattage of all the lamps together to give you the correct rated socket or connection. Each connector block must have it's own insulated enclosure box.
- If your light fittings cannot be pre-wired you will need to order an individual socket or connection for each fitting.
