Safety Switches And Switchboards

Safety switches are an important part of many household electrical systems. They are designed to de-energize a circuit when a risk is detected and to restore power quickly once the risk has been removed. For example, a safety switch will de-energize your circuit if you accidentally touch the live wire. This prevents you from getting a shock and being burned.

Safety switches are often overlooked in homes because they’re not very flashy or exciting—most people don’t think about them until something goes wrong. Allow us to inspect, upgrade or install your switchboard.

Why do I need safety switches?

The importance of having safety switches installed should never be underestimated. Although they might seem like a simple device, they are an essential part of any installation and need to be installed correctly in order to work as expected. It’s important to keep them well maintained so that they will work if an issue arises during use.

The purpose of a safety switch is to prevent electrocution if you, a family member or an employee were to accidentally come into contact with any live parts of your electrical installation. The device will shut off the supply of electricity very quickly when a leak of electricity is detected, stopping the person from being exposed to live electricity for a long period of time.
It is also to take note that safety switches are required to be compliant with Queensland law in both rental properties and commercial premises.

If you think you have an issue with safety switches feel free to get in touch and talk to us.
