UK Grid or Local Power Network Outage in Balham SW12?

Small and medium sized enterprises (SME) are particularly vulnerable when the electricity is off. A mains power failure means downtime for your business. Larger organisations can absorb the impact of the financial losses better than an SME.

In cases when the national or local grid is down in Balham, there is little that you can do. If your business is the only one on the industrial estate or street without power, you need to find a solution as fast as possible. Even an SW12 business with fewer than ten employees can suffer losses of hundreds of pounds per hour.

If your business is subjected to a mains or sub mains failure, your troubles are now over! South London Electricians have been getting businesses and local authorities in all areas of South London back on line for more than 25 years.

During that time, we have dealt with pretty much all mains power loss scenarios in and around Balham. When your business experiences a power outage, call us on 07956 523316 at any time. You will speak directly to an experienced Balham 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

Health and Safety

The obvious one is a loss of productivity, however, a power outage can go a lot further than that. Firstly, there is the health and safety of your employees. Heating, ventilation and air conditioning fails, as does lighting. If it is the winter, you will need to provide some sort of alternative heating and lighting. In summer, the opposite. In both cases, the ultimate will be to send them home and close down completely until the problem is resolved and the electricity supply has been restored.

Access and Security

During a power cut, you will probably regret having that smart electronic access system that was installed. Security systems will be off-line leaving your Balham business premises vulnerable.

Data Loss

When a computer system has the electricity suddenly cut off, the effects can range from mild to catastrophic. The best case scenario is that only a little data is lost which can be easily recovered onse power is restored. The worst case would be the failure of your hard drives, requiring major input from Balham (SW12) IT specialists to recover the data.

Resilient Sub Mains and UPS for Balham Businesses

Before your business is hit by a power outage such as a sub mains failure, it is well worth looking at back up power systems and robust sub mains distribution systems. But you need to bear in mind that for most electricians, fitting and repairing distribution boards is not a regular job.

It needs an qualified and experienced electrician who is familiar with the requirements of correctly splitting the incoming supply. Almost any Balham 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.

Here at South London Electricians, we are specialists in the design, installation and commissioning of mains and sub mains distribution systems. We install and maintain large scale distribution systems including cable management and containment through to the installation of Ryefield distribution boards and switch panels.

Qualified SW12 Sub Mains Engineers

Our Balham 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.
