The OHS of 1993 states that no Building or Premises shall be hired, leased or otherwise occupied, if there is not a Valid Electrical Certificate of Compliance for said premises in place.
With the Code for the Wiring of Premises – SANS 10142-1 and the Electrical Installation Rules (EIR) Safety is key.
Having assisted many clients, – Industrial, Commercial and Domestic, we are well equipped for the job. Be it a factory, production line, flat, or industrial plant – we have an excellent understanding of SANS 10142-1, and continue to attend refresher and update courses on the subject.

In effect, an Electric Fence, is an extended machine. One designed to cause electric shock.
The amended legislation covering the safety standard requirements for the
manufacture of electric fence energizers and the erection and installation of nonlethal electric fence systems, as well as the laws relevant to sellers, installers, users,
and lessors of such systems are to be found in the Department of Labour’s Occupational Health and Safety Act 1993 (referred to as the Act) under Sections 12 to 16, Electric Fences. These amended
regulations can also be found in the Government Regulation Gazette No. 9509
Vol 549, published in Pretoria 25th March 2011 No. 34154 Clause 12 Electric Fences
We have tested and certified several Electric Fence Installations over the past few years.

Power Factor Correction is a genius method to reclaim lost / wasted power. In some cases, we are able to “reclaim” up to 25% of a consumers’s accounted usage. In effect freeing up, up to 25% of the account for effective use, without the account going up.
Harmonics, caused by having VSD’s, and other types of Electronic speed control on motors in a plant. Its effects include excessive bearing losses. among other problems.. Harmonics also cause “bad power” or filthy power”, which has a lot of negative things associated. Power Factor and Harmonic Filtering goes hand in hand.
With extensive training in Lightning Protection system Design, Product Selection and Installation Methods, we also have the required ELPA membership (founding Member) and having written the required tough exam – we have the required knowledge and experience needed to design Lightning Protection Systems for multi level buildings, Signal and Cell towers, Lapa’s and thatched structures, both domestic, commercial and industrial plant and factories.
Having recurring VSD’s / data centre losses on electronic equipment? We have real solutions, sandards based for proven best practices.
No oil and snakeskin solutions here…

Many times, Electrical faults or recurring Electrical losses happen, because of poor, or quite often, no Earthing at all.
Electronics behaving badly, blowing repeatedly, or random equipment having residual charge and sparking, cause unneccesary downtime, data loss or equipment failure.
With practical knowledge going much further than simple Loop, PSC and Earth Resistance Testing, we can find and solve sticky issues most other contractors would argue makes no difference. Blaming losses on natural phenomena or acts of god, is still not a solution – We have solutions that work.
UPS’s and generators have become part of our everyday lives. Connecting UPS’s and generators together, has its own new set of problems. Having installed, and continue to maintain several UPS & generator systems, we have a proven and reliable track record.
We can solve your tripping issues – especially remote systems where costs of solving issues takes longer and is regularly more expensive, than systems in Gauteng.
If you cannot afford losing downtime in the North West, Northern Cape or Northern Free State – we are your solution.
Initially, we only connected the AC section for Solar PV installers, but eventually, we went ahead to do the courses, and now we also design, supply and install complete Solar PV systems – with our preference to do full Hybrid systems, able to operate totally off grid, but retaining the option to feed back into the grid (even if its not yet possible in most areas)
Using direct Solar to AC conversion, is more important than installing the cheapest “PV system” that needs a hundred batteries to function. – An office system, normally operates during normal business hours, when the sun is normally shining. The most efficient scalable system, would be to install a system able to use the sun directly, having only a limited amount of batteries for night work, still able to seamlessly fall back to ESKOM (If its available..)
Most small to medium sized Security Contractors and IT contractors do not have the practical experience, man power or other means to install camera and or network cabling cost effectively, or when they do, install it impractical and in sight – where-as we are geared to do bulk installations, very quickly and very efficiently.
Aware of all the factors causing interferance and losses, such as EMP and induction, we guarantee our cabling installations would be efficient and safe from location and site interferance, as per our design constraints.
