Stay safe and secure With Aces Security & Electrical

Replace old style fuse boxes with the latest generation, which are safer and easier to use, with mini circuit breakers to protect every circuit in the house and respond quickly to prevent the risk of danger. They can be fitted in the most convenient position for you and have extra protection through the use of an RCD.

Outdoor electricity is just as important as indoor and can be equally as hazardous. Avoid trailing wires through windows and open doors by having weatherproof and dustproof outdoor switches and sockets fitted outside your home and in your garden.

Electrical tools such as lawnmowers and hedge trimmers require RCD protection for your safety. There is a full range of RCD switches and sockets available, ask our technicians for advice.
