Surge protection is now required to be installed in a number of locations. These are defined as locations where transient overvoltages could:
Result in serious injury to, or loss of, human life, or
Result in interruption of public services and/or damage to cultural heritage, or
Result in interruption of commercial or industrial activity
Affect a large number of co-located individuals.
For all other cases a risk asssessment should be carried out.
Surge protection will protection equipment and can not only save the equipment from failure, but also protect people from injury.
If you have any doubts or concerns then you should contact an electrician to discuss the problem. At Fusion Electrical Services we are able to offer free advice over the telephone and in person.
