Sparks Electrical News

Plumstead Electrical, Cape Town’s leading independent wholesale supplier of premium branded electrical goods, celebrates its 50th birthday in April. The family-run business was founded by Sandy Gold in 1968 with the vision of being the best electrical wholesaler and lighting supplier in Cape Town. After 50 years this vision has been realised and continues to this day.

Every issue, Sparks Electrical News will be putting a relevant question to the industry – this month, our focus is lighting.

This month’s question: Do you believe that electrical contractors have reached the point where specification and installation of LED lighting, where appropriate, is becoming the rule and not the exception?

What constitutes a hazardous location? In some contexts it could be a badly lit step, however, we consider it an area in which a flammable material, gas or vapour must be mixed in the correct proportion with air, and within this mixture, a spark or heat is present, sufficient to ignite the mixture.

We are all looking for ways to save money yet our monthly electricity bill never comes to mind. How much energy do we use? What appliance draws the most power? What can we avoid using in order to reduce costs?

Ellies has designed and manufactured a linear high bay fitting which can replace traditional high bays. With proprietary technology, the products use less power and have an increased lifespan and less lumen depreciation.

Just imagine: a screwdriver which allows you to work twice as fast. An electric screw-driving assistant which relieves you of bothersome screw fastening, yet allows you to finish tightening carefully by hand. Too good to be true? Not at all.
