We work with all commercial businesses, large and small our Electricians will deliver the electrical solutions your business needs to operate more efficiently.
We specialise in commercial, industrial, retail and office electrical installation, maintenance and repairs.
Before undertaking any commercial electrical installations, we fully understand your business’s current needs and goals so that the installation can meet your requirements now and in the future.
We cover all Commercial Electrical tasks, such as rewiring premises and installing appliances. Our installations cover single, three-phase systems and Cat 5, Cat 5E & Cat 6 wiring – all of which comply with the most up-to-date IEE regulations.
We understand that minimising disruption to your business operations is essential, so if necessary, our installations can occur outside of opening hours.
Upon completion of the installation, our customers receive either an Electrical Installation Certificate (EIC) or a Minor Electrical Installation Works Certificate (MEIWC) – these documents prove that the work has been appropriately completed to legal standards.
Furthermore, they also prove that our customers have taken appropriate steps to ensure safety and compliance with relevant regulations and insurance requirements.
Commercial lighting is essential for any business. The correct lighting boosts employee productivity, ensures a safe working environment and attracts footfall customers.
We Design and fit all types of commercial lighting, which includes
We’ll ensure that your commercial lighting installation is correctly planned and executed. Our electricians thoroughly understand all types of lighting, energy efficiency, types of commercial enterprises and their lighting requirements and health and safety regulations.
Employers are obligated to guarantee the well-being and safety of their employees. Therefore, electrical condition reports and PAT testing are essential for workplace health and safety.
Our certified electricians can visit your premises regularly to assess your electrical system and appliances, providing you with the necessary certificates afterwards.
During these visits, they will conduct rigorous tests on your electrical system and appliances issuing the required certification following the inspection and testing.
When it comes to appliance installation, it is not recommended that you attempt it yourself due to the danger of risk posed by electric appliances when fitted incorrectly.
Ensuring your appliance will work properly and safely with your electrical system is important. The only way to do this is to have your appliance fitted by a qualified electrician.
We fit all types of domestic appliances, such as hobs, ovens and Boilers.
Consumer Unit Installation & Upgrades
We install BS EN 61439- compliant RCD consumer units in new buildings and extensions and upgrade old consumer units and fuse boxes in Rayleigh.
New consumer units feature RCD (residual current device) fuses that trip instantly when a fault occurs, providing superior protection against electrocution (which can be fatal or lead to electrical fires).
Some older properties in Rayleigh still have outdated fuse boxes with traditional wire fuses.
Old fuse boxes take longer to cut the power if a fault occurs and are inconvenient as the wires must be manually replaced every time a fuse trips.
Equally important is the difference between old and new consumer units. Old fuse boxes have wooden bases, not the metal construction of modern consumer units. Metal significantly increases safety as its non-combustible old fuse boxes are a potential fire hazard.
Electrical systems are only as effective as their consumer units which play an integral role in powering sockets, lighting fixtures, and appliances while protecting them from damage due to overloading.
Installing a consumer unit meeting the BS EN 61439 standard ensures your home is powered safely.
Earthing & Bonding
Earthing & Bonding is installed to protect people from the dangers of electrical shocks by ‘earthing’ the electrical current.
This is especially important for homes built before 1991, as their 4-6mm wires may no longer comply with the requirements of electrical safety regulations set out in the BS7671 standard.
We install, test, repair and upgrade Earthing & Bonding systems in households and commercial premises.
Landlords EICR Certificates
Ensuring the Electrical system and appliances are up to the legal standard is a common headache for Landlords, but it needn’t be. We make the process quick and easy.
Landlords must ensure
- The electrical installation of a rented property must be safe at the start and maintained in a safe condition throughout the tenancy.
- Houses in multiple occupations (HMO) is inspected every five years (Electrical Installation Condition Report, commonly known as EICR)
- Appliances are safe with CE markings
We undertake electrical inspections and issue EICR certificates ensuring your property is safe for your tenants and you’re on the right side of the law with a valid EICR certificate.
Fault Finding & Electrical Repairs
Fault Finding and Electrical Repairs involve diagnosing and repairing various electrical issues.
Faults include burnt sockets, electric shocks, humming consumer units, arcing, tripping fuses, flickering lights and more.
These are potential signs of an electrical fault that a qualified Electrician should inspect and rectify.
Indoor lighting has come a long way in recent years, and with so many options available, it can be challenging to know where to start.
We specialise in indoor lighting installation, from upgrading single lights to complete lighting installations throughout the home.
We fit all types of indoor lights, which include pendant, recessed, bathroom, under the counter and lots more.
All lights are fitted with LED bulbs which provide excellent energy efficiency. In addition, a wide range of colours and strengths are available to create the perfect ambience in each room.
Smart lighting is also available, enabling you to control your device’s lights from anywhere at any time.
Outdoor lighting has become increasingly popular in Rayleigh over the years.
Outdoor lighting transforms gardens and outdoor spaces into stunning living areas where you can chill with friends after dark.
Exterior lighting also helps secure the area by deterring burglars and making navigating your way around at night easier.
Modern outdoor lights are fitted with the latest LED bulbs, which are much more cost-effective than their older halogen bulb counterparts in terms of purchase and running costs. We install both garden/landscape lighting as well as security lighting.
When we design and fit an outdoor lighting system, we consider all factors, such as the size of the outdoor area, existing fixtures/furniture and your specific needs and wants.
Careful planning ensures the finished installation provides illumination that enhances the look and feel of your outdoor living area.
Every homeowner and landlord in Rayleigh should be aware that having their house wiring checked every ten years, and rewired every 30 years, is recommended. This is because wires deteriorate over time, and not all homes adhere to the latest wiring regulations.
We can come in and assess the condition of your wiring and undertake any necessary rewiring bringing your home’s electrical system up to date with the latest wiring regulations.
Up-to-date wiring serves the power consumption of modern households and their sophisticated appliances. Ensuring a safe electrical system for those living in the property.
Sockets are vital as they provide power to various appliances and devices throughout your home.
Our experienced Electricians can upgrade your existing outlets or add additional power points to your home.
We fit all types of sockets, including those with USB ports (for charging mobile phones quickly and conveniently without taking up a plug socket) and sockets with built-in RCDs, which provide another layer of safety.
Sockets are available in various materials, so they can be customised to your home’s decor. Materials include classic white plastic, stainless steel, coloured plastic, wood finishes and more.
Outdoor Sockets are the perfect accessory for any garden providing a safe and easy way to use external equipment such as lawnmowers, power tools and outdoor lighting without running extension leads through your home.
These sockets are dust and waterproof, typically constructed from metal with robust plastic sprung covers that snap shut when not in use. These covers sit on top of plugs holding them securely in place. No more pulling the plug out of the socket when you mow the lawn.
Outdoor Sockets are incredibly versatile and can be installed in any home and outdoor space.
Security lighting is a key element in ensuring the safety of both homes and businesses.
In today’s world, property owners must take extra measures to protect against vandalism and theft. For example, research has demonstrated that having security lights installed around a building significantly deters criminals who use darkness as cover for their activities.
Lights create an impression that the building is occupied and likely monitored by CCTV cameras and other security devices, making it less attractive to those with malicious intentions.
Our Electricians design and install security lighting systems tailored to the needs of each home or business premises.
When designing the system, we take into consideration any vulnerable areas, such as poorly lit doors, windows, alleyways, garages and backyards, which may be susceptible to prowling intruders.
We ensure lighting complements other security systems, such as alarm or CCTV installations.
A combination of motion sensor lights and timed lighting provides effective illumination while being cost-effective and inexpensive. In addition, LED light bulbs are used with all security lighting for maximal energy efficiency.
Smoke & Heat Alarms
We install wired smoke and heat alarms and wired carbon monoxide alarms to create a safer home environment for you and your family.
Wired smoke alarms detect smoke particles in the air, while heat alarms detect unusually high temperatures. Both alert you of fire.
Installing wired alarms ensures they are always active and ready to respond to emergencies. They also include a backup battery in case there’s a power cut.
Alarms are also interlinked, so if one is activated on one floor, all floors are alerted.
