Reduced risk of electrical fire from overheating of cables
Protection against electrocution
Did you know?
Old switchboards with re-wireable fuses are banned from use and have a much higher risk of electrical fire and provide a much lower degree of protection against an electric shock.
New switchboards use circuit breakers and residual current devices ( Safety Switch`s) to ensure that in the event of a fault, the faulty circuit is isolated extremely quickly (30 milliseconds) and have been proven to save lives.
