Metal Black Nickel Electrical Sockets And Switches For A Perfect Finish

Electrical Counter is pleased to promote the BG Nexus range of electrical sockets and switches for use both in the house and in the office or work place. The company is particularly pleased to be able to stock a complete range of fittings than cover virtually every eventuality of usage. The BG Nexus range has been developed to provide a very attractive design finish that will stand out most impressively when fitted into the décor of the building. The Metal Black Nickel finish is a very subtle colour and whilst distinctive it is not an “In your face” finish and will tone into not only a modern finished building but will not be wasted in less contemporary surroundings. The finish of all the metal fascia’s is such that they are a polished smooth surface which gives very clean lines and simple finish and they all match a basic standard design with no sharp edges but all rounded corners and sides.

Electrical Counter notes that the system is an ideal one to be used where there is a requirement to keep the whole place clean and within the bounds. The materials of the metal surface are such that they retain their initial properties over a long period and do not deteriorate with time. They are simple and when cleaned with bacterial wipes will remove all bugs that may be transferred to them and they pick up less bugs in the first place as the smooth surface is less attractive to their collection. This makes them ideal for usage in the kitchen or office and they are quite acceptable in places where there is a serious chance of bug and disease transfer.

The full BG range of switches and sockets have allowed the BG Nexus brand to become a major range of products and Electrical Counter is delighted to be able to stock the full range available for delivery on an immediate call off basis. The Metal Black Nickel range is at present a most attractive range not only because of their design but also because of their price. At present Electrical Counter is pleased to be able to offer the whole range at vastly discounted prices, which makes their usage competitive with some of the cheapest models on sale. Some typical examples show the Metal Black Nickel dimmer switch on sale at £9.99 instead of the usual £31.51 whilst the simple Black Nickel light switch is on sale for £2.91 against a usual price of £14.41. The overall cost of the sockets and switches being in the range 25% to 33% of the original cost.

Electrical Counter have an excellent web site in which all the different ranges of Nexus metal switches can be seen and if there are any further queries the experience of a well trained staff is available by telephone to answer any queries. Electrical Counter pride themselves on the fact that whilst the internet warehouse provides good quality materials at cheap prices it has also retained the experience essential to run this business and to make sure that it is available to company employee and customer alike.

Lamp Post Electrical Supplies Light Up With Wylex Consumer Units

Lamp Post Electrical Supplies now stock a fantastic range of electrical goods for supply to the power distribution business and the Wylex range of products are great example of just how good that range is. Wylex are particularly noted for their range of high class consumer units and the quality belies the fact that they are extremely competitively priced and of a major significance to the market place. Lamp Post Electrical Supplies can supply the full range of Wylex consumer units and if the user cannot find what is required on the internet then a simple phone call to the company will get the full details of the range of the products and also give a delivery date. Invariably the products can be supplied off the shelf.

The Wylex consumer units are extremely well made and the choice of units is almost too large but this market place is difficult as there are so many different requirements and Wylex and Lamp Post Electrical Supplies are pleased to be able to supply all the differing needs.

One of the most pleasing things from the point of view of Lamp Post Electrical Supplies is that the Wylex consumer units now have so much versatility built into them. All of the Wylex consumer units conform to the 17th Edition regulations and all new consumer units are fitted to these regulations but Wylex have moved on and offer the user the ability to introduce a far greater degree of protection than the regulations require. The Wylex consumer units can be either a split load system where certain circuits are ganged together with each gang to be protected by a Residual Current Device (RCD) or they can be individually protected circuits with an RCD on each or more preferably a Residual Current Breaker with Overload Protection (RCBO) micro circuit breaker on each circuit. The RCD protects against current leakage to earth and the RCBO protects against current leakage to earth and also overcurrent conditions as well. The idea that every circuit is individually protected by an RCBO is something that Lamp Post Electrical –http://www.lamppostelectrical.co.uk – is very keen to promote. The savings in injury and death from electrocution cannot be underestimated and is worth the effort and expense, although the expense is not at all large.

Lamp Post Now Stock Full In-Line Manrose Extractor Fan Range

Lamp Post Electrical supply all electrical equipment for the power circuits of the house and office and the Internet has allowed them to build a great business, which supplies the market at prices which are well below those of the standard retail outlets. Their typical website is both informative and descriptive so that a good idea of the product can be quickly gained. Any further information can be gained by e-mail or phone. The delivery service is what the customer wants it to be, but Lamp Post Electrical prides themselves on getting the goods quickly and safely to the customer.

The extraction fan business has become more and more complex over the years as the pollution rules and regulations have become stronger and this will change still further in the next few years as environmental and social conditions become stricter. The rules on extraction fans for the bathroom and washroom areas have always been strict because of the danger of water and electricity mixing and passing electrical currents to earth. The introduction of the 17th edition RCD controlled circuits has helped matters, but most installations still use off site extractor pumps to get rid of the unwanted steam and smells.

Lamp Post Electrical have supplied the Manrose CFD200T in line extractor fan for some time and it is a very reliable piece of equipment. The pump works on a typical 4 inch diameter extraction tube that connects to the waste exit of the bathroom to the extraction fan itself. The power of the extractor fan is such that it extracts some 85 cubic metres per hour very quietly and continuously. The fan is fitted in lime and into the line and extraction is not a problem as it will deal with all the typical problems that bathroom extractor fans may have during their normal operation. It should clear away all steam developed by the shower or the bath and leave the room dry, it will also remove obnoxious smells.

Lamp Post Electrical supply all the fittings and fixtures for the operation and the only real problem is where to fix the extractor fan into its final position as this obviously needs to be outside the bathroom. It can be fitted below the floor or above the ceiling but there will be a need for a suitably sized space and also the requirements in the case of an emergency so that future access may be possible to repair or replace easily. All that then remains is a suitable access for the extracted gases to be passed outside of the building through a tube and grill. If there are no suitable access routes then there are some extractor fans which can work in the bathroom or wash room environment without the need for the ultimate protection but these must be mounted so that they cannot be reached when standing in the bath or shower.

Manrose Centrifugal Extractor Fans Provide A Lamp Post Electrical Supplies Stalwart

Manrose are a company with a good history record in supplying everyday fans for the business and household market place and Lamp Post Electrical Supplies are delighted to keep stocking one of the stalwarts of the extraction fan markets in order to supply this ever changing market place. The Manrose centrifugal fan range has almost become a standard as it is able to deal with waste gases and extraction smells produced in the appropriate places. The centrifugal fan is the major part of this design with a central motor and controller which is built with fans with totally sealed bearing sets which require zero maintenance and bearing supports which last a long time. The centrifugal fan is basically a workhorse of the commercial or household market providing a strong fan which will operate continuously and effectively over many years. The areas where they come into their own are the commercial kitchen where vast quantities of waste gases need to be extracted (although there are smaller areas where they are equally useful).

Manrose Extractor Fans are recommended by Lamp Post Electrical Supplies as it is designed to aid and work effectively in pushing waste gases over long distances without a severe loss of pressure and therefore a loss of effective waste gas removal. They are very good at overcoming the pressure restrictions that have by nature been built into bends and grilles that may be inserted over the trunking range without serious reduction in pressure. This is particularly useful in some of the most modern commercial kitchens where the waste gas source is easy to pinpoint but the gases have then to be moved over long distances to extract then from the room. The reasons they have to be moved so far can be many but the usual reasons are that care must be taken not to remove the kitchen smells and then pump them straight outside the room where people are working or where they can percolate into a neighbouring house and remove the problem from one place to a neighbouring area. A failure in this region can bring problems resulting arguments with neighbours and potential guests or even prosecution by the local government officials. Any good workhorse requires a good working life and the Manrose pump has a normal working life of around 40,000 hours, obviously for Lamp Post Electrical Supplies replacement of kitchen extractor fans will not occur overnight but there is an ever increasing market place.

The centrifugal fan is a system that works well from small fans to the very large fans and they are extremely quiet in operation with virtually no vibration problems because of the centrally balanced motor. The smaller fans are aimed at the smaller markets and are aimed at bathrooms and toilets as well as small household kitchens where waste gas extraction is required.

Lamp Post Electrical Supplies – http://www.lamppostelectrical.co.uk – are proud to stock a full range of Manrose fans which can be delivered swiftly and effectively to repair breakdowns or deal with pressing problems and will be pleased to offer advice as and when required.

Brushed Stainless Steel Switches Route For Electrical Counter

Electrical Counter, the retailer of electrical goods for the power installation business has developed a very strong product range which is now taking advantage of a full list of the latest in materials and designs for all the major electrical furniture. At the present moment Electrical Counter has some excellent ranges of switches and sockets for the retail and trade counters and the full range can generally be bought off the shelf on the Internet with a next day or 2/3 day delivery cycle dependent on what is required or requested. Any queries are just a call away. The market is ever changing and with the changing design the wheel has almost turned full circle and there is an exceptional line of brushed stainless steel switches and sockets that have been developed. Originally metal switches were quite a disaster and many electrical shocks were received by the users, some of them very serious. The problem with the replacement plastic switches and sockets is that these days they appear a little mundane and can get discoloured.

Time has changed the beast and the latest stainless switches are attractive and very safe, the insulation and switch design has now totally changed and these are great working switches, which have fully accepted modern technology and are able to meet all the most stringent regulations. Electrical Counter is pleased to be able to supply a range of these switches in a very good looking brushed stainless steel finish. Brushed stainless steel is an excellent material, which generally allows a very smooth finished product to be produced usually in a slim line form. The finish of smooth stainless steel sometimes accepts fingerprints and can easily look scruffy when it is handled but brushed stainless steel is an excellent material and handles much better. It does, of course, need cleaning but it does look very good in situ and when fitted throughout the building with matching sockets the result is stunning. The metal switches also have allowed the development of the screwless switch and socket. This range uses a push in, pull out fixing which uses no screws and keeps a very clean face across the whole of the switch or socket. This line is likely to be very popular in the near future.

Electrical Counter is delighted with these ranges and at present is able to offer most of the range at a very much reduced price than the previous listed prices. The price reduction is at least 50% on the lower priced items and can be up to 75% on the higher cost items. This saving gives an excellent opportunity to change the full lighting and socket system of a household for about 30 to 35% of the list price which is excellent value and offers a rare opportunity to make such a change. Electrical Counter have worked very hard to develop this business and they are able to offer the great names and latest designs of the electrical manufacturers at very reasonable prices so that they are able to meet the demands of users and installers alike.

The Electrical Counter stock a vast range of electrical wholesale products in the UK including top quality Nexus sockets such as Nexus metal sockets and Nexus plug sockets ranges.

No more fumbling under a desk frantically trying to find which plug to pull out to cut the power to the shredder off as an example.

Lastly just remember that badly managed cables are the source of nothing but problems with it being a nightmare to find out which power cable leads to which PC and which telephone socket connects to which phone. So speak to Lamp Post Electrical Suppliestrunking specialists today to see how their innovative Dado Trunking solutions can help you sort out your cabling problems.

Safety Improvements Required For Home Electrics

It is interesting to note that in a University electrical laboratory students are limited to dealing with 50v and 3A maximum, yet we are allowed free to use 240v and 13A with virtually no restrictions at home.

So one would question why all new dwellings have to have modern consumer units fitted by law, and older houses do not? Time for a change maybe?

Well you do not have to wait for the law to change as getting your old fuse box changed for a consumer unit is a very straight forwards job for a competent electrician, and should take them less than a day to fit.

If you have just bought an older property then changing an old fuse box over should be your first priority, particularly if you are going to be doing a lot of refurbishment, which may put a higher than normal load on the electrical system.

Firstly there is the safety aspect with regards to electrocution, a modern consumer unit features Residual Current Devices (RCD’s) that sense any current imbalance between the positive and neutral conductors, such as you drilling through the live cable in a wall. The beauty of them is that they sense this imbalance in milliseconds, and cut out the power before it has had chance to electrocute you. This alone for me is a good enough reason for anyone to replace their fuse box as soon as possible.

Secondly unlike a fuse box, the modern units have mini-circuit breakers that do not blow out like a fuse but just trip out, and unlike a fuse they can be instantly re-switched on by flicking the breaker back up. This means goodbye to trying to find the right grade fuse wire in the dark, and no more running out of the right grade of fuse wire full stop.

They can also be fitted with Residual Current Circuit Breakers with Overload protection (RCBO’s), which also sense current overload. Whilst the fitment of RCD’s in new boxes is mandatory, the next logical progression would be for RCBO’s to also be made mandatory to fit.

Also the safety benefits in replacing an older fuse box with a new consumer unit far outweigh the cost of fitting, particularly with new eight way units starting from as low as £35 plus the cost of the RCD’s and Mini-Breakers.

By fitting a new consumer unit you greatly de-risk being electrocuted or having an electrical fire, so do it today before it is too late.
