At Expert Electric, we offer a variety of specialty receptacle installation services for businesses and our licensed electricians are equipped to make recommendations on the best outlet types and placements for your business.
Types of Specialty Receptacles
Surge-Proof Safety Receptacles
Surge-proof outlets are perfect for offices or other areas that will supply power to sensitive electronics such as TVs or computers. These specialty safety outlets help to protect devices from damage by shutting off the power supply if too much electricity surges through the circuit.
If an outlet is being installed in an area where there is a higher risk of electrical shock, it is often standard to use a ground fault circuit interrupter outlet. This specialty electrical receptacle can cut the flow of power from an outlet if there is an interruption in the circuit, which turns the potential for an extremely dangerous electrocution into a smaller, less harmful shock.
When a piece of equipment requires an increased amount of power to operate, it may be necessary to call a licensed electrician for a 240-volt specialty outlet and circuit installation. These receptacles are able to handle increased electrical loads safely.
Outdoor Safety Receptacles
Specialty safety receptacles for outdoor use need to be properly outfitted to prevent water damage. They often implement weatherproof housing and should be installed properly by a licensed electrician to mitigate the risk of electrical fires, shock, or other damage to people and property.
Special Outlet Location Installation
Whether you need a tabletop outlet installed for a conference room or a window display outlet placed for a retail store, all specialty electrical receptacles from Expert Electric can be installed in whatever location provides your company with the greatest benefits.
