Modular WiringWe hear the word ‘modular’ used a lot these days, especially within the construction industry. Components of systems such as air conditioning are manufactured off-site and assembled in situ for instance. This practice has grown in popularity and is a convenient, time saving and less costly way of doing things. Modular wiring systems have also become the ‘go to’ process for many sectors within the electrical industry. Those working in the industry have come to realise that hard wiring is pretty time consuming, which of course means more expensive.

Modular wiring represents state of the art wiring systems supported by forward thinking technologies. Renewable energy projects and prefab buildings are perfectly complimented by these systems. Green energy within electrics has experienced incredible growth, and shows no sign of slowing down. However, in areas where traditional wiring is the dominant feature, growth has been somewhat stagnant.

One aim of innovations like modular wiring systems has been to reduce carbon emissions and consumption of energy. Minimal installation time is a big advantage, being reduced by around 70%. Production of completely pluggable systems has been a game changer, simply plug in, connect and ‘hey presto’. Modular wiring systems have already featured in some of the highest profile settings, such as St Bart’s Hospital and the Olympic Stadium. They are now accepted by specifiers as an exceptionally viable solution.

These systems are so reliable, and there are far fewer things that can go wrong, unlike traditional systems. They can now be found in hospitals, schools, residential spaces and retail units. Major companies such as Telesys Lighting Services Ltd incorporate modular wiring systems into what they offer. The main advantages of modular wiring systems are:

  • Fast, simple installation
  • Money saving
  • Convenience
  • Reliability
  • Eco-Friendly
  • No wasted materials
  • Less problems on-site

5 Reasons for Getting a Veranda

Veranda InstallationVerandas and other types of sheltered garden building, are all the rage these days for several reasons. The most obvious is of course the virus and the huge role fresh air plays in keeping us safe. This is because virus particles are dispersed in fresh air and are less effective at infecting people. This is why the government advises that meetings and other activities should be done outside. Of course this isn’t always possible, especially with the unpredictable UK weather, sun one minute and rain the next. Planning family get togethers or meals out can be difficult without risking cancellation when the weather changes.

Glaziers, builders and veranda companies have been inundated with orders, as businesses attempt to keep customers coming. Just about every bar or restaurant on the high street has some form of sheltered covering outdoors. Apart from staying safe from the virus, there are other advantages to verandas, including:

1. More Space

Verandas act as functional extensions for the home, allowing people to enjoy their gardens all year round. Verandas can be fitted with lighting and heating for a comfortable and versatile solution.

2. Shelter from Rain

Rain, strong wind and other forms of unpleasant weather are no fun, but verandas and glazed canopies are a practical addition. You can enjoy the garden, read a book, have a cuppa, check your phone etc without getting wet.

3. Raised Property Values

Alfresco living is growing like never before and it’s an accepted fact that home additions like this raise the value of any property.

4. Party On!

A sheltered structure like a veranda is an ideal way to extend outdoor parties and barbecues. Let the British weather do its worst, the fun will continue.

5. Keeps Floors Clean

A veranda will stop your floors and carpets from taking the brunt of mucky shoes. Slip off your shoes before entering the home and they will stay dry! Timber decking will also last better when protected from rain etc.
