Fit-outs & Refurbishments
Whether you’re moving into a new premise or refurbishing an existing one, good planning is essential.
Before you speak to your builder, be sure to give your trusted electrician a call to discuss your electrical needs and devise a comprehensive electrical plan.
Your electrician will take into consideration what your existing needs are, as well as any potential future requirements.
At Jaques Electrical, we have the commercial electrical experience and the expertise to see to every step of your refurbishment from airconditioning and data services through to emergency lighting, smoke alarms and more.
It’s not hard to know when it’s time to upgrade your switchboard. It could be that you’re experiencing an increase in flickering lights or circuit breakers tripping when appliances are used.
Perhaps you’re experiencing constantly blown fuses, electric shocks or notice appliance plugs heating up at the wall.
With an ever-increasing demand on household and commercial power, it’s easy to understand why it’s important to have your switchboard maintained to ensure ongoing safety and efficiency.
In some cases, upgrades will need to be made to get your switchboard back on track.
At Jaques Electrical, we stay up to date on the latest Australian Wiring Standards and are experienced in switchboard design, installation, upgrades, maintenance, and repairs.
Give our friendly team a call if you think your switchboard could use an overhaul, or for advice on how your renovation or refurbishment will impact your switchboard needs.
Compulsory in all New Australian Buildings
For three decades safety switches have been compulsory in all new Australian buildings.
These life-saving devices work in a fraction of a second to prevent electrocution when a problem occurs and have saved countless lives since their introduction.
For older buildings, safety switches must be installed whenever changes are made to the existing electrical layout, but it makes sense to protect yourself and your staff long before any modifications are required.
The team at Jaques Electrical can assess your existing switchboard to ensure every circuit is protected by a safety switch, as well as test, replace and install new safety switches as required.
For Peace of Mind
Available in both manual and automatic formats, changeover switches for generators offer businesses and homeowners peace of mind in a power outage.
These clever devices transfer a building’s power supply from mains to a back-up generator with the simple flick of a switch.
Automatic changeover switches do all the heavy lifting and kick in as soon as mains power is lost, no intervention required.
Manual changeover switches are a more affordable option than automatic changeover switches but require someone to be present to manually redivert the power source to a back-up generator at the switch.
Give our knowledgeable team a call to find out which option is best suited to your home or business.
Car Park Lighting
Deterrent Against Crime
Providing effective car park lighting is an important deterrent against crime while also providing a safe and welcoming atmosphere for customers and employees.
Ample car park lighting is also necessary for the provision of clear CCTV security footage.
The Jaques Electrical team can offer advice and guidance on a suitable carpark lighting plan that meets your needs, as well as Australian Standards.
In addition to design, installation and maintenance of both indoor and outdoor car park lighting, our team can assist with additional carpark lighting solutions from timers to improving cost efficiency.
At Jaques Electrical, we can assist with the professional installation of your security lighting, keeping you and your team illuminated and safe after hours and deterring unwanted visitors at night.

Exit and Emergency Lighting
All Emergency & Exit Lights Must be Compliant
If you’re in need of new or updated exit and emergency lighting, as well as testing or cleaning of existing lighting, the experienced team at Jaques Electrical can help.
Here in Australia, it’s mandatory that all emergency and exit lights are compliant with existing building codes and laws.
This includes the ability to maintain illumination for a minimum of 90 minutes, which must be tested every six months.
Our expert team will advise on where emergency or exit lighting should be installed, such as in stairwells and landings, areas with a level change, corridor intersections and direction changes.
Lighting and signage must also clearly identify passage routes to the exit of a building.
