What electrical products do you need for your new office space?
- Extension Sets
- Power Outlets
- Light Switches
- Circuit Breaker
- Smoke Detector
- Motion Sensor For Safety
Electrical products are mainstays in any office space. Your new office space is no exception to this, and as such, you should make sure that you have the best products. Before going to your local electrical supplier and start shopping, you must be informed of what the best electrical products are, and what purpose they serve in your new office space. To help you in that regard, here are six electrical products you need in your workplace.
It shouldn’t be a surprise that extension cords and sets are a part of this list as they are some of the handiest electrical products around. Having only two slots in your usual power outlets is a hindrance to this modern, technology-intensive era.
Extension sets not only give you an efficient workaround for that problem but also enable you and your workplace to do more and be productive. You can connect multiple computers and other devices that can help you get more work done.
However, do take note that attaching too many electrical products to a single extension cord can become a fire hazard, so make sure to distribute the electricity properly through many channels, outlets, and different extension sets. Our MES 1300 or 1400 series of extension sets should do the trick for you in terms of consistency and safety.
What would an extension set be without power outlets to supply them with electricity? Pretty much any electrical product would be useless without power outlets to supply the proper amount of electricity. Now, this particular electrical product might be a no-brainer, but not having enough of them can be detrimental to the success of your office space. Make sure you have plenty of outlets available and place them strategically so that your office is electrically enabled.
Light switches are another example of the necessary things you should have in your office space. The hidden wisdom behind this is that having the right amount of lighting is of utmost importance. Too often do you see offices and rooms in general that have poor lighting, but what most people don’t know is that this can lead to lower levels of productivity and worse, poor eyesight!
Avoid encountering these kinds of problems by keeping your space well-lit. At the same time, try not to go overboard with the illumination because that can become a distraction and could also adversely affect your employees and workers.
If safety is important to you (if it isn’t then you might have some priority issues), then circuit breakers are a must-have. These devices are standard issued, and you shouldn’t really be operating an office space if you do not have circuit breakers installed. The main reason why is because it automatically protects your closed circuits from short circuits, and power surges.
Short circuits are dangerous for your electrical products as it only takes one incident for your computer, transformer and other electrical devices to break thanks to a short. You can avoid that completely if you have a circuit breaker, and best of all, they can just be reset after being triggered, unlike a fuse that is essentially a one-time use protection device.
If you are looking for a specific circuit breaker, the C45N has an interrupting capacity of 6 KAIC at 240/415V which is perfect for most small electrical devices and appliances.
Smoke detectors are the next thing you need for your new space as it offers a level of protection that not many devices are going to provide. Once a smoke detector senses the smoke coming from a fire, it sounds a loud alarm to warn everyone inside the building.
Meiji Electric offers superior smoke detectors that effectively detect a fire before it can get worse. Our MSD – 02 has an alarm that produces a sound with a loudness of 85 decibels every 3 minutes. This ensures that everyone in an office will hear the alarm wherever they are! Aside from that, it also has a low-battery alarm, so people are also notified when it’s time to replace the battery.
Motion Sensor For Safety
Last but not least, for safety products perfect for your new office space, you have the motion sensor. Motion sensors are more technologically advanced than other entries in this list. It provides a greater detail of safety and protection against would-be criminals. In that regard, Meiji Electric also offers different types of motion sensors from ceiling type motion sensors to the door stopper variety. Either way, you can’t go wrong because they provide an adequate level of security to your office space.
It is important to have all the basics covered when it comes to owning a new office space. Security is also a priority as there’s really no telling what people can do these days. It is better to err on the side of caution when setting up your new office space. Make sure that your local electrical supplier has all the products listed above to make sure your new office is well-equipped and ready.
