Do you know that switchboards can and do save lives every day? But only if they are up to date!
Older switchboard protection devices may lack intrinsic safety features that trip so quickly that you can grab a live wire on the ground and only get a mild shock – the most common electrocution is by touching a live conductor when you are touching ground or earth and safety switches are not installed.
However, having safety switches, does introduce more opportunity for nuisance tripping to occur (they are designed to pick up very small fault currents) and many electrical contractors install a “group” of power circuits on a single safety switch. That means any safety problem trips all of your power points!
So if you have any concerns about safety switches, nuisance tripping, or not sure if the switchboard needs upgrading, click here for your booking and a guarantee of getting local friendly service.
