GSSTM (Ground Sentry Shutter) is a patented safety feature found in all Eubiq power tracks and wall sockets. Its unique design enables highly effective grounding of all conductive objects that come into contact with the power track, making it virtually impossible for any hazardous shock to occur.

An Eubiq power track and an Eubiq power adaptor make an adequate GSSTM system, but the system can go very comprehensive, with supplement of the Eubiq accessories, which cover a range of data housings, multimedia connectors, lighting solutions, USB charger and surge protector.

Safety

GSSTM incorporates an array of springs in the core of the power track, which act as both safety shutters and ground wire. Besides their function to ground any conductive object that comes into contact with the track, these shutters also prevent direct access of the live conductors, which are niched at the top and bottom of the power core. This feature has made the GSSTM system one of the safest power outlet system in the world. As a matter of fact, GSSTM system has been intensively tested by many of the world's most reputable test labs* and has met most international safety standards. It is also widely recognized as a childproof product.

Cable management

Most Eubiq power tracks are designed to handle cable management. Multiple phone and data cables can be pre-run in the track through dedicated compartments, which are isolated from the power core to eliminate undesired electromagnetic interference (EMI).

Flexibility

Being ultra-flexible is what makes GSSTM system outshine the conventional power outlets. On GSSTM system, power outlets can be easily and instantly added, removed or repositioned along the track with a simple twist. Besides, the length of the power track can be tailored to your requirements prior to installation. The conventional system, on the other hand, requires hacking and looping of the existing ring circuit in order to add a new power outlet. Not only is the job costly and time-consuming, but also the outcome usually compromises on the aesthetics of the environment.

Easy installation

Eubiq power tracks can be easily installed by any qualified electrician or competent DIY person and that normally requires only a fraction of time needed to install conventional power outlets within an area.

To convert a conventional power outlet to GSSTM system, simply remove the wall socket and connect the existing power wires to a surface mount Eubiq track. Once mounted, the housing and the end cap of the track will nicely conceal the existing wall hole cut for the conventional socket.

NOTE: Strictly for illustrative purpose and must not be deemed installation guide. Actual installation manuals can be downloaded at products' respective pages.

Universality

Eubiq power tracks accept all devices with a GSSTM key. Hence, with the wide range of Eubiq adaptors available in the market, the GSSTM system is ready for worldwide use. In addition, you can use the Eubiq International Travel Adaptor as an alternative to standard British, Schuko (German), Japanese, American, Indian, Chinese, Australian and European outlets.

Reusability

As easy as how the installation is done, Eubiq power track can be easily removed and reinstalled in new location.

Durability

The Eubiq power tracks are made of premium aluminum finish and use pure copper conductors; the Eubiq adaptors are made of top-grade polycarbonate/ABS and use gold plated contacts. The entire GSSTM system has successfully passed a 15000 cycle test, which is equivalent to 50 years of usage or more.

Money-saving in long run

While the initial installation cost of GSSTM system often appears higher than that of the conventional system, in long run GSSTM system actually saves more! The following example will give you a clear picture of the saving.

Example A-1: To install 4 power outlets for the first time

GSSTM system
2 ft. (600 mm) SC2 track MYR302 × 1 = MYR302
BS2 British Compact Adaptors MYR76 × 4 = MYR304
One-time installation labor charge (transporation included) MYR180 × 1 = MYR180
Subtotal : MYR786
Conventional system
Branded faceplates & outlet boxes MYR35 × 4 = MYR140
Installation labor charge per outlet (transporation included) MYR120 × 4 = MYR480
Subtotal : MYR620

Example A-2: To add 3 new power outlets to the existing system

GSSTM system
BS2 British Compact Adaptors MYR76 × 3 = MYR228
No installation needed - -
Subtotal : MYR228
Conventional system
Branded faceplates & outlet boxes MYR35 × 3 = MYR105
Installation labor charge per outlet (transporation included) MYR120 × 3 = MYR360
Subtotal : MYR465
Total : MYR786 + MYR228 = MYR1014
Total : MYR620 + MYR465 = MYR1085

And the gap grows as more outlets are added.

NOTE: The calculation above is merely an estimation and must not be relied on in isolation.

As a standard one-meter Eubiq power track can support up to 12 Eubiq power adaptors, new power outlets can be easily created whenever the need arrises only at the cost of the new Eubiq adaptors. No extra installation work is ever needed.
