Smoke Alarm & Safety Switch Installation
Woodcroft, Adelaide Smoke Alarms
Did you know you are more than twice as likely to perish in a fire at home if you haven’t got a smoke alarm? A smoke alarm is the easiest way to alert you to the danger of fire, giving you precious time to escape. Ned Kelly Electrical recognise that domestic smoke alarms are an essential part of today’s electrical installation. We can install domestic smoke alarms which are interlinked mains powered, with battery back up smoke detectors in your home.
There are two types of smoke alarm:
Ionisation alarms Whilst these are the cheapest and most readily available alarms, they are sensitive only to flaming fires (ones that burn fiercely such as chip-pan fires). Ionisation alarms will detect flaming fires before the smoke gets too thick.
Optical alarms These alarms are more effect at detecting slow-burning fires (such as smouldering foam-filled furniture or overheated wiring), and are less likely to go off accidentally.
Safety switches for Woodcroft residents
Safety switches minimise the risk of electric shocks, injuries and deaths and electricity-related fires. It is actually a legal requirement for all new homes and premises to have safety switches protecting all power points and lighting circuits.
How does a safety switch work? When a person comes into direct contact with electricity, electricity is directed through their body to earth. This cases a loss in the amount of electricity in the electrical circuit (the path for the flow of electricity). A safety switch detects very small losses and switches the power off in as little as 0.3 seconds.
Knowing the different types of safety switches, their purpose and the protection they provide is what Ned Kelly Electrical knows best. We can help you determine the correct safety switch for your home, and professionally take care of your safety switch installation in and around Adelaide.
