Circuit Breakers

Miniature Circuit Breakers (MCBs) are the modern day alternative to traditional fuses. Their main benefit is that if you do overload a circuit the circuit breaker will automatically switch off. To re-establish power you simply have to reset the circuit breaker by flicking a switch instead of re-wiring a fuse.

Safety Switches

In recent years changes in wiring regulations have made it mandatory for safety switches to be fitted in all new homes. Safety switches continually monitor the power flowing through the wires in your home. If a leakage in current flow occurs due to an Earth fault, your safety switch will cut the power off in less than 40 milliseconds, saving your life.

Safety Switches are available in three main types:

    Power Point Safety Switches While they can't normally protect the entire home, a Power Point Type Safety Switch can protect specific parts of your home. For example, the kitchen, or the nursery, the garage, bedroom, bathroom, or laundry. Should you decide on this form of Safety Switch protection, there is an extensive range available made specifically for Australian conditions.

    Portable Safety Switches Portable Lifesaver Safety Switches allows you to carry your protection with you. They are a must whenever an extension cord is used with a power tool or in high risk situations such as outdoors or damp conditions.

    Switchboard Mounted Safety Switches By far the most efficient method of protection is a Switchboard Mounted Lifesaver Safety Switch because it can offer protection for the entire home. All power and lighting circuits in the home can be protected if required.
