What is an Electric Panel?
Your building’s electrical panel is essentially the hub where all of the electrical energy gets transferred to where it is needed in your office or workspace.
If anything should go wrong with the panel, such as a faulty connection, a blown circuit or a tripped breaker, none of the electrical equipment in your office will work properly, and productivity will suffer. This makes it essential to have an electrical panel that you can rely on functioning at your office or commercial site.
The panel itself is usually found in a grey metal box mounted on the wall in a utility room or closet that is out of the way, but still easily accessible.
In fact, a blocked panel or one that isn’t easily accessed is actually a violation of safety codes established in the Canadian Electrical Code.
If you have an electrical panel that you cannot easily get to, that is a good sign that you are in need of a replacement or upgrade.
In addition to their accessibility, an electrical panel is required to have what is known as a “dead front” where electricity cannot be conducted in order to prevent dangerous electrical shocks from occurring.
If you are unsure about whether or not your panel has a dead front, or if it is currently exposed, it is a good idea to give a commercial electrician a call to keep you and your employees safe.
