Taking your electric installations outside must be carefully planned and installed.
When considering your plans for outside, as far as your electrics are concerned, the garden is the most dangerous place in the home environment for injuries. According to the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (ROSPA), around 300,000 people will be injured in their gardens this year, and a significant proportion will be related to electrical injuries.
External electrics are particularly hazardous due to the presence of water, damp, humidity, and the extremes of weather, which can make equipment deteriorate faster.
Part P of building regulations now effectively bans garden enthusiasts from installing their own electrics in ponds, sheds, garages and greenhouses, meaning that all electrical work in the garden must be carried out by an approved electrician registered with the NICEIC; such as Prestige Electrics.
Whether its power to your shed, garage or water feature, the latest LED lighting in your decking with wireless remote switching, or simply a single security light in your garden, Prestige Electrics can advise you of all the available options and provide a solution to meet your needs with full certification.
