Security & Safety
Let Us Protect Your Business
Whether you’re moving into a new commercial premises or wish to improve the security of your current office or warehouse, Mr. Electric can provide the advice and technical support you need to keep your business safe. Our expert electricians will happily advise you on the best solutions and tailor them according to your company’s budget, whether it’s emergency lighting, outdoor security lights or electrical safety equipment.
Our specially trained engineers carry out emergency lighting tests as part of their routine inspections of commercial premises. Emergency lighting is needed in commercial buildings – and some domestic buildings – to ensure the safe evacuation of occupants in the event of an emergency. For this reason, all emergency lighting must be regularly checked, tested and maintained, while complying with fire safety and building regulations.
A flick test can and should be done routinely to make sure that the emergency lights are functioning. A flick test involves momentarily shutting off the main lighting to see if the emergency lights start up and work correctly.
Emergency lighting can be broken down into two sub-categories: emergency escape lighting and standby lighting.
Emergency escape lighting is used when leaving the property and/or attempting to resolve the situation. Only appropriately trained personnel should try to correct the issue. Escape route lighting should be followed to a safe meeting point in the event of a life-threatening emergency which requires immediate evacuation of the building.
Standby lighting is needed when power has been lost to the main lighting system but there is no risk to the people on the premises. This lighting is there to allow people within the building to continue as they usually would.
It is also important that your fire safety systems are checked regularly. They need to be able to work with the emergency lighting systems you have in place to ensure the safety of all people on the premises. Our engineers can check both systems at the same time to provide that valuable peace of mind to business owners, employees and customers.
Outdoor Security Lights
Businesses are a common target for thieves, but outdoor security lights can be a good way of deterring criminals from targeting your own company. At Mr. Electric, we can design a lighting solution that protects the security of your property, employees and customers alike. This could include floodlights, tree lights and car park lights, plus other features like motion sensors and intruder alarms that help to create a safe and secure commercial premise.
Damage from power surges is one of the leading causes of electrical equipment failure. For businesses, it is critical to be protected from surges that originate from both internal and external sources so they don’t hinder productivity or cause electrical hazards.
What causes power surges?
There are numerous causes of power surges, including lightning, problems with your utility company’s equipment, large appliances cycling power on and off, faulty wiring and fallen power lines.
What is at risk?
All items that have a microprocessor are at risk during a power surge. This includes items like computers, air conditioners, fax machines, scanners, printers, televisions, security systems, refrigerators, alarm systems, microwaves and telephones.
How can you protect your business against surges?
One of the best ways to protect your company against power surges is to invest in a surge protector. These relatively inexpensive devices limit the voltage supplied to an electrical appliance by shorting to ground or blocking any voltage that exceeds a safe threshold.
A surge protector will ensure your employees don’t lose valuable data, not to mention productivity, in the event of a power surge. It will also save you having to shell out potentially thousands of pounds on replacing expensive equipment that could be damaged beyond repair by a surge.

Fantastic service from Mr Electric. I had new LED lights installed in my business, very small area the engineers had to work in and it had to be done before I opened my shop in the morning. The engineers were very professional and were waiting for me to arrive. They fitted 3 new LED lights and panels, they were finished, swept up and gone all within 2 hours. Absolutely brilliant service from start to finish. Thank you. Would definitely recommend Mr Electric.
Very helpful and excellent service.

Here at Chelton Brown lettings we have worked with Mr Electric now for sometime. We have found them to be, reliable, flexible, good value and extremely helpful. they always go out quickly and give us excellent feedback.
Lee is very valued and trusted contractor for my company. He has great knowledge and will tell you how it is before any work is carried out. He is very fair in his pricing and has a good turnaround for a fast response. Great Electrician and one I'd personally recommend.
We came back from holiday late in the evening to discover that none of our sockets was working. I rang Mr. Electric the next morning at 8.30am, and an electrician was with us just an hour or so later. He quickly found the fault and solved it, but then we discovered afterwards that one of the sockets still didn't work. The electrician came straight back again after a phone call and fixed it in 5 minutes. Am very pleased with the swift, helpful and efficient service.
