Commercial Electricians - 7 Professional Qualities

Commercial Electrician Brisbane & Sunshine Coast

What Are Commercial Electricians?

Commercially trained electricians are a type of electrician that is focused on the needs of commercial properties. They work on everything from office buildings to retail stores and can be found in many countries worldwide.

In Australia, you will need to have at least two years of experience as an electrician before you can apply for this position. These professionals offer four types of services: design and installation, maintenance and repair, fire safety inspection and testing, and emergency response.

There are three basic types of jobs they do. They work on installing, maintaining, and repairing electrical systems in various settings such as factories, warehouses, offices, or retail stores.

Commercial electrician qualifications are different from residential qualifications because there is a lot more responsibility for safety with an increased number of workers around.

Installation of Commercial Security & CCTV Systems

They install commercial security and alarm systems, which detect unauthorised entry into commercial buildings and alert security guards or police. Commercial electricians are responsible for maintaining commercial alarm systems as well.

Electrical Safety Inspections

In Australia, commercial properties with a gross floor area of more than 100m must have an annual safety inspection and fire risk assessments every three years by law. These laws include commercial fire alarm system installation, commercial electrical wiring inspections and commercial emergency lighting.

Commercial Refrigeration Systems

They also install commercial refrigeration systems, which are necessary to keep food temperature at a certain level inside shops or supermarkets so that their products can be stored for extended periods without spoiling.

Parking Lot & Outside Light Maintenance and Installations

One common issue commercial property owners have to deal with is whether or not to use a licenced electrician for their outside lighting. Properly fitting and installing any type of exterior lighting system is crucial to the safety and security of your patrons, customers and employees.

Outdoor Lighting

When considering whether or not commercial property owners should have an electrician install commercial outdoor lighting, it is essential to remember that the tradesman will provide a variety of commercial services and can handle many different types of commercial properties.

Retail and Commercial Lighting Fit Outs and Installations

Interior commercial lighting installation projects are a substantial speciality. These commercial lighting installations consider the customer’s needs and want for their commercial space, such as where lights should go, what types of bulbs should be used, and how much light is needed.

These commercial electricians working on commercial interior lighting installations know that commercial interior lighting can make or break a commercial space, and it’s their job to help clients achieve the desired effect with their commercial interior light design.

Ceiling Fan Installations

Ceiling fan installations are a very popular service we offer. A commercial ceiling fan installation will entail a commercial electrician obtaining the necessary wiring and applying it to the designated location. The commercial electrician will have to connect the wire from the wiring box to the ceiling-mounted unit, typically equipped with remote control.

Installation can also entail installing multiple fans at one time without compromising the quality of electricity output. Installing commercial ceiling fans provides a cooling effect by producing airflow, reducing the central AC system load, and saving energy.

Commercial air conditioning installation includes commercial refrigeration installation, commercial environmental air-conditioning, commercial air heating and ventilation systems.
