This can save your appliances, protect your electrical cables from catching fire, and most importantly save a life from electrocution.

Why are switchboard upgrades necessary?

  • Outdated switchboards are highly prone to short-circuits and overload, resulting in sparks creating fires which tend spread quickly.
  • There is greater chance of personal electrical shock with older boards. The new circuitry will shut down instantly when power leakage is detected. Critically important where young inquisitive children are concerned but just as important for any age or situation.
  • An electrical safety switch will also shutdown mains power in the event a fault occurs within an appliance. Once shut down it can’t damage the appliance further or cause it to catch fire.

Do you have confidence that your old switches will be able to tackle such a huge power supply?

  • If you experience lights that flicker all the time.
  • If you experience fuses that blow for no apparent reason.
  • If you experience localised power outages.
  • If you experience frequent power tripping.
  • If you experience heat coming from your fuse board or switchboard.

If you experience any of the above its most likely that your electrical equipment is crying out for switchboard upgrades.
