Use Only NICEIC Approved Electricians

Domestic, Commercial & Industrial Electrical Contractors, NICEIC Approved Electricians

Businesses, offices and facilities like hospitals rely heavily on efficiently performing electrics and lighting, and would have trouble functioning where there was an outage. This highlights the importance of regular maintenance carried out by experts for electrical systems. Along with an increased demand for power, managers are charged with the task of providing their businesses with energy efficient electrical solutions.

Innovations which include smart metering and clean energy are high on the agenda, making it crucial to choose an experienced, NICEIC registered electrical contractor. This means less chance of emergency call outs, and peace of mind regarding the safety of the property.

As members of the NICEIC scheme, electricians are required to meet a set of professional standards. Rigorous assessments are not only performed on joining, but are an ongoing process, carried out at regular intervals. These electricians are expected to keep up to date and comply with the latest health and safety legislation, along with technical regulations and developments. A good working knowledge of the law regarding electrical work is also needed by the electrician, and customers can rest assured that NICEIC offer personal service in the event of a problem arising.

Hiring an electrician who is not familiar with legal and safety aspects could be putting your business at risk, along with risking possible injury to any building occupants. One requirement for businesses is PAT testing, which checks that any equipment or appliances used are functioning properly and safely. Electrical wiring must be installed according to BS 7671 to fulfil Electricity at Work Regulations 1989. Guidelines concerning heating and air conditioning also have to be observed by the electrician. Electrical contractors at Allied Build, are NICEIC approved and are also associate members of the Electrical Contractors Association. They offer a wide range of electrical services for domestic or commercial clients, along with carrying out projects for local health authorities..

Make the most of your Retail Store with LED Lighting

Lighting Systems, Electrical Contracting, NICEIC Approved Commercial & Domestic Electricians,

Lighting in the retail or entertainment setting is very rarely used to its full potential, with many lighting systems being based on traditional design and technology. Basic on/off switches are too often the norm, and lighting beyond this point is hardly considered. More enlightened companies, [excuse the pun] have made the transition to LED lighting, for greater control and versatility. Experimenting with lighting is a major part of achieving the ideal buying environment, which will not only attract customers in but will encourage them to stay longer and ultimately make purchases. In a restaurant it will create a mood, and a relaxed atmosphere in which to eat and chat.

The way a store is lit can create a discreet ambience making shopping pleasurable and comfortable. Clever illumination using LED lights is the perfect tool for designers, and one which can show off displayed products to great effect. In fact, investing in store layout, branding and merchandise without doing the same with the lighting could be a bit of a wasted effort. Shops wishing to compete against online stores are increasingly under pressure to provide the unexpected, giving them an edge, and making it worthwhile for customers to venture into them.

Customers like interaction and to be interested and engaged when browsing, and lighting tricks can play a big part in this. Whether its carefully positioned beautiful coloured light or patterns and shapes projected onto a wall, the results are usually aesthetically pleasing. Light can offer up surprises at every turn with a little imagination, and sometimes it is not immediately apparent why the surroundings feel exceptional. There are additional advantages with LED lighting such as no problems due to heat, as they remain cool to the touch, and they are also eco friendly and save the business money in the long run.
