These switches are an essential part of a building’s electrical systems that many overlook and may provide life-saving protection, which makes them a worthwhile investment for any company or home.

What Is A Safety Switch?

A safety switch, or a residual current device, activates during electrical failures to prevent a damaging electrical shock. This is similar to a circuit breaker, though the main priority of this device is usually to protect appliances from short-circuits, and other damages that may arise during electrical problems. Safety switches instead focus on defending people from these risks, shutting off the current before it reaches you, or anybody else. Installing a safety switch could help you avoid a serious calamity, and it’s paramount that you ask a trusted installer such as John McEwan Electrical to provide you with these devices.

There are four main types of safety switches, and we have the skills to install each one depending on your own unique requirements. Switchboard safety switches go directly onto the meter box – this allows them to protect specific circuits or the entire network, alongside appliances. For devices without an active power connection, a portable switch might be necessary to ensure the tool doesn’t suffer a dangerous failure. Power point switches replace a power point entirely, providing protection to cords and appliances plugged into them. A combination switch blends this device with a circuit breaker, keeping both people and appliances safe.
