A Spider Box is a portable power distribution box that is designed to be an economical way to distribute electrical power using a 250 VAC, single-phase power source. Typically, electrical spider boxes are used to power tools and other equipment on construction sites, in disaster recovery efforts, and any other application where temporary power is needed. Regardless of where temporary power is required, spider boxes are the safest, most convenient way to provide electrical power to portable power tools, temporary lighting systems, and other electric equipment.
Due to the harsh environments, spider boxes are exposed to, we designed the best spider box on the market. Our spider boxes are designed to be rugged, durable, and dependable. These compact portable power distribution boxes are tough. We designed and built them to withstand repeated transportation from job site to job site. See our article on How To Utilize Spider Boxes for more information. For added flexibility, we offer spider box models in both straight blade (NEMA 5-20) and twist-lock (NEMA L5-20) receptacle configurations. Our spider boxes do require a power cable, adapter, or accessory to supply power to the unit from a portable generator or another source.
