Safety Switches

Safety Switch Installation

Safety Switch Installation  is your protection against electric shock. A safety switch is designed to prevent injury or death.

Safety Switches monitor the flow of electricity through a circuit. It detects a problem as soon as the current leaves the circuit, and turns the power off within 0.03 of a second. This stops the chance of current flowing to earth, through a person and electrocuting them.

While it’s now a legal requirement for all new homes to have safety switches installed, not all older houses do. Safety switches are designed to save lives and do! If a safety switch isn’t installed in your home then you run the risk of you, your family or your pets coming into contact with electricity, which can lead to electrical shock and death.

Safety switches are mandatory on all power and lighting circuits. Installing a safety switch is an inexpensive safety measure that protects your most important assets.

Safety Switches must be installed by a professional, certified electrician and regularly tested to ensure they are working properly.
