• Safety Switches

  • Safety switches are an insurance against electric shock and are designed to prevent injury or death. They monitor the flow of electricity through a circuit and automatically shut off the electricity supply when current is detected leaking through faulty switches, wiring or electrical appliances.

    By installing at least two RCDs, the property's circuits can be divided evenly. This ensures some light and power remain if one RCD operates and also minimises faulty operation from appliances which have low-level leakage current.
