Rewiring can improve safety in your commercial building

Commercial premises need to be electrically sound. If your business is based in an older property, it is essential that all internal electrical systems are assessed to ensure the safety of your staff, customers and visiting clients. There are several potentially dangerous factors, but if your property is more than 25 years old and there has been no rewiring in that time, it is advisable to have the internal wiring inspected.  

When wires become damaged or degraded they can present a substantial risk. Injuries, fires, electrocutions or even tripping hazards can have detrimental effects on your business. A complete rewire of your commercial property can not only ensure on-site electrical safety, but it also enables you to redesign your interior layout and facilitate a more functional working environment.

If you are unsure about your wiring, check the cables for fabric or lead coatings. These were phased out prior to the 1960s and the use of black rubber was discontinued during the 60s. These coatings are clear indicators that the wiring system requires upgrading. Additionally, look out for cast iron switches, fuseboxes with wooden backs, round light switches and pin sockets, braided flex that hangs from the ceiling, brown and black switches and sockets that have been mounted in skirting boards.
