Electrical safety is not just a conscious decision, it’s a legislative requirement. If your home is older or you are renovating an old home, think safety switches. Your electrical wiring is old and you may also need to replace this as well. A safety switch can detect a loss of power from a circuit and cut the supply of electricity in 30 milliseconds. That’s a heartbeat away from serious injury or death.

We want you to be around to enjoy the benefits of your new surround sound system and so we are telling you now… Electricity is dangerous and we’d like you to allow us to make your older home safe.
You’ve got a circuit breaker, but don’t confuse this with safety switches. A circuit breaker is designed to protect your appliances and electrical fittings. The safety switches are designed to protect your life by cutting the power to a faulty circuit. We like it when lives are protected.
