Is your domestic or commercial property switchboard aged or damaged? Are fuses blowing suddenly or circuit breakers tripping frequently?
If so, it’s time to consider a switchboard upgrade.
A switchboard is the core of a building’s electrical wiring. It directs the main supply to all the circuits powering the home or business and the reliability of your switchboard is critical to ensuring the safety of occupants.
Discussing your needs with a licensed electrician will mean that considerations like supply availability can also be assessed. Whether you need a switchboard upgrade for domestic or commercial premises, we can help.
A. Western Australia’s Building Regulations 2012 (the Regulations) sets out the requirements for home-owners to have compliant smoke alarms installed:
A. An RCD is a safety device that prevents electrocution by cutting the electricity supply immediately. It works on the principle that the electricity flowing into a circuit must be equal to the current flowing out of a circuit. When you receive a shock it means an electrical current has passed through the body directly to earth.
RCDs are fitted at the meter box and will have a test button on them. If you press the ‘test’ button or the RCD has detected an issue, the on/off switch will go to the ‘off’ position.
A. When a person makes direct contact with electricity, it is directed away from its main path in the electrical circuit and instead goes through the person’s body to earth. A safety switch can detect the change in the electrical circuit and switches the power off in as little as 0.3 seconds.
Fuses and circuit breakers protect against short circuits and current overloads, but only safety switches protect people from electric shock.
Safety switches are only a back-up. They may not protect all wiring and electrical appliances and will not prevent all electric shocks.
A. Home owners can choose to install combined circuit breaker and RCDs. These devices protect the electrical circuits and appliances as well as preventing electrocution and are an option in meter boxes with little or not spare space.
A. RCDs fitted to a power point can be recognised by the test button on the face of the plate. They are made for protecting electrical appliances in your bathrooms and workshops.
