MCL’s Electricity Substation Kiosk is designed to house and protect both larger and smaller substations/ transformers and is the first kiosk of its kind to be tested to the industry standard BRE test TCR 20/97 in 15 years.
The kiosk has an explosion relief roof, fixed with extendable brackets, to minimise the effect of a potential explosion.
In the event of an explosion, the extendable brackets allow the roof to elevate and to be guided back down into place once the pressure of the explosion has dissipated. As well as protecting passers-by, as the force disperses through the vents and restrained roof, there is minimal/no damage to the GRP kiosk itself.
MCL Utility explosion tested their substation kiosk on 18th June 2014. To our knowledge, this is the first such test in the UK for over 14 years.
