New Excel Life powerpoints: Why they are the best GPOs on the market

Installing powerpoints just got faster with new Excel Life single and double GPOs now hitting stores.

Following feedback from electricians, we conducted a meticulous review of these bread and butter items with one mission in mind: we wanted to give electricians the best quality powerpoint that was both the fastest and safest to install on the market. We wanted to enable electricians to do a super job, super fast.

Our review led to a complete re-design of the backside: from new, super hard captive screws with extra deep heads for better grip, to guided cable terminals, and smaller a footprint for easy fit-off in standard cabinetry cut-outs.

We gave a bunch of the new powerpoints to electricians to trial. Hear what they had to say here:

Raised Insulation Barriers
For extra protection against copper exposure and accidental short circuit, we’ve beefed up the insulation barriers.

Ergonomically Angled Screws
Easier to access, faster to fit-off, the new angle also makes it easier for you to use electric drills without damaging the product.
