How To Install USB Phone Chargers For Commercial Bars

Discover why USB receptacles build customer trust and keep patrons in your bar, hotel and restaurant longer.

For those of us on-the-go, our cell phones and tablets are in constant need of recharging. Even worse, we often don’t have allIMAGE OF PERSON WHO FORGOT HIS PHONE CHARGER the clumsy charging attachments. If you’re a bar owner and looking for a way to keep your patrons in your establishment longer, the USB receptacle could be just what you need. With all new commercial bars we’re designing, we include USB receptacles in every plan. How are electrical receptacles installed on bars, you ask. As seen in this section view, we typically like the receptacles installed in a horizontal fashion, centered 38” above the floor. This makes them easy for patrons to see and access, as shown in this photo. We typically specify the outlets to be a maximum of 48” on-center along the perimeter of the bar. If you’re going to retrofit an existing bar, the simplest approach may be to surface-mount the outlets a 1” x 6” wood molding, similar to the one used in this example. From a previous video, you may remember that for our new bar designs have a designated ADA section. We normally specify that an outlet be installed within 6” of either end, as seen here. This makes it easy for the disabled patron to locate and plug-in, since the hardware is well within the maximum height allowance of 54” and reach allowance of 48”.

Bear in mind, what I’m talking about isn’t simply a standard duplex receptacle, rather, it’s a commercial specification gradeIMAGE OF BAR WITH USB PHONE CHARGERS duplex outlet with dual 3.1 amp USB charging ports, capable of servicing most compatible electronic devices that charge via a 5V adapter. We typically specify the Eaton TR7755, as shown here and available for download below. This hardware also features an automatic grounding system, thereby eliminating the need for a bonding jumper. The Eaton TR7755 replaces the standard duplex outlet and is available in nine standard finishes. An average bar should cost less than $1,000 to retrofit.

So, if you’re looking for a creative diy idea to building brand loyalty with your patrons, installing USB receptacles on the face of your bar will help you gain popularity points while also encouraging them to drink and eat longer while their phones are charging.
