Mains Power Failure

Local three phase power network outage in Addington? UK Grid or Local Power Network Outage in Coulsdon or Kenley?

Without electricity, your business will suffer. Small and medium sized enterprises (SME) are particularly vulnerable to both short and long term losses. Larger organisations are able to cope with the impact than an SME. Even very small businesses with fewer than ten employees can lose hundreds of pounds per hour when the power is down.

There isn’t much you can do if the national or local power grid is down other than wait. UK power companies know what an impact this is having on local businesses and public services, so you can be sure they are working to restore the power as quickly as they can.

Most people’s first reaction will be to look outside the window to see if other properties are in the same boat. We know the sinking feeling that you get when you realise that it is just your business or commercial property off-line. When your business experiences a power outage, call us on 07956 523316 at any time. You will speak directly to an experienced electrician and not a receptionist. The benefit to yourself is that it wastes less time and your hotel, commercial kitchen, MoT station, manufacturing centre, HMO, public building or whatever will be back up and running a lot faster.

Problems of Mains Electricity Outages

Whether you are in Croydon, Sutton, Merton, Wandsworth or wherever, the issues facing you when your mains electricity is off are many. The obvious one is a loss of productivity, but, a failed mains or sub-mains system can go a lot further than that.

Security and Access

Security conscious London businesses will often fit advanced electronic systems that control the security and access to all areas of their premises. This is very much the case with public buildings too. But what happens when the mains or sub-mains circuits fail? There should be some back up in place but essentially, security and possibly even access will be down.

For businesses and public buildings where security is paramount, call us on 07956 523316 at any time – we are qualified and experienced in the fitting of back-up power supplies (uninterruptable power supplies or UPS for short).

Data Loss

The effects of a power cut on a computer system can range from mild to catastrophic. The worst case is that it destroys and corrupts your system’s hard drives. This necessitates major input from IT specialists to recover part or hopefully all of the data.

Health and Safety

Firstly, there is the health and safety of your employees. Heating, ventilation and air conditioning go off, as do the lights. You will need to provide alternative heating, lighting or perhaps cooling. The ultimate solution is to close down completely until the problem is resolved and the electricity supply has been restored.

So why delay, to benefit from competitive rates and an efficient customer-centred service, call South London Electricians on 07956 523316 for a no-obligation chat about how your South London business or public service could benefit from our domestic, industrial and commercial electrical services.

Resilient Sub Mains and UPS

It is therefore well worth the time and effort of looking at back up power systems (UPS). It is also crucial that you have a robust sub mains distribution system. These are based on distribution boards, commonly referred to as Ryefield boards.

But you need to bear in mind that for most electricians, fitting and repairing distribution boards is not a regular job. It needs a qualified and experienced electrician who is familiar with the requirements of correctly splitting and balancing the incoming supply. Almost any electrician could look at the specs of a Ryefield board and figure out its principles, however, there is much more to installing one than that.

Best Price for Ryefield Board Installation

There are various ways that the sub-mains supply can be organised, depending on your requirements. Here at South London Electricians, we specialise in the design, installation and commissioning of mains and sub mains distribution systems. We will discuss your power distribution needs and offer you a cost-effctive solution.

We install and maintain large scale distribution systems including cable management and containment through to the installation of Ryefield distribution boards and switch panels.

Our mains network engineers are fully qualified and experienced in sub mains installations for all types of building – residential blocks, hospitals and medical centres, HMOs, blocks of flats, commercial kitchens, hotels, education centres, factories and offices.
