Shock & Fire Prevention
Electrical hazards often go undetected because electricity is unseen and unheard. They can lead to serious injury and even electrocution.
An Arc Fault Circuit Interrupter (AFCI) is a circuit breaker that is able to prevent electrical hazards from happening. They are designed to prevent fires by recognizing a non-working electrical arc and disabling the power before the arc catches fire. The cause of an arc fault can be anything from loose or defective connections, damaged, overheated, or stressed wiring, cables, and even electrical appliances.
Faulty electrical wiring has caused over 165,000 fires, many being derived from arcing faults. Unwanted arcs can initiate high and even sweltering temperatures that are able to cause surrounding items (especially insulation or wood) to combust into flames. Prevention is crucial when it comes to electrical tragedies and serious injuries. Call Duke Electric today to protect your business with AFICs.
Standard circuit breakers only react to overloads and short circuits, so they do not stand up against arcing situations that produce sporadic currents.
GFICs are constructed to defend against electrical shock. When diversions in electrical currents are recognized by GFICs, power is immediately cut off, hindering any serious shocks and electrocution.
