The Importance of a High Quality Switchboard

Having a high quality switchboard is imperative. Older switchboards tend to have fuses, which when there is too much power drawn, they blow. And this means you will need to replace the whole fuse. This can take a while for the fuse wire to burn out and can be a fire hazard.

With a modern switchboard, we install safety switches and circuit breakers. So if there is too much power drawn, the circuit breaker will detect it and automatically switch off, protecting the cable from overheating.

Our team of highly trained local electricians provide and install reliable switchboards across Melbourne.

The Importance of Safety Switches


Prevention of Electric Shocks

Safety switches monitor the electrical current flow through a circuit and instantly shut off the power if they detect a leakage current to earth, which could occur if someone touches a live component.

Mitigation of Fire Risk

Safety switches can identify potentially dangerous electrical faults that might not be evident until it's too late—cutting off the power before these issues can lead to overheating or sparks that ignite fires.


Protection for Appliances and Electronics

Fluctuations and faults in electrical supply can damage sensitive electronics and appliances. Safety switches help safeguard these items by immediately isolating any fault preventing surge-related damages.

FAQs for Safety Switch Installations

Safety switches are crucial for protecting individuals from electrical shocks and lowering the risk of electrical fires. They provide an additional layer of safety that circuit breakers or fuses alone cannot offer, ensuring the well-being of everyone on the premises.
The number of safety switches required depends on the size and complexity of your electrical system and specific regulations in Melbourne. Generally, it’s recommended to have a safety switch for each circuit to ensure comprehensive protection. Our team can assess your needs during the consultation.
No, a licensed electrician should always carry out safety switch installations. Incorrect installation can lead to device malfunction and potentially leave your property unprotected against electrical hazards. When it comes to electricity, inadequate work can lead to hazardous situations.
It is recommended that safety switches be tested every three months to ensure they are operating correctly. This can be done by pressing the ‘test’ button on the switch. However, for a more thorough inspection or if you notice any issues, you can contact us at Lexity.
