Please note, although this page is intended as a bit of light fun, the instances photographed are extremely dangerous and present a real risk to both lift and property.

It is recommended that all electrical installations are periodically inspected and tested to ensure that they are safe to remain in service.

For a quotation on an Electrical Installation Inspection & Test by one of our qualified Inspectors please contact our office...

During our day to day activities, we come across a range of electrical installations which range from ‘not right’ to ‘damn right dangerous’... Take a look below at the best of our latest finds....

Contact Us House of Horrors...


Left: This good example of the potential dangers of loose connections was found when a customer called reporting a   ‘fishy’ smell. Luckily only the cable insulation and main   breaker had melted and nothing more serious.


Right: A fantastic example of BIY… Botch It Yourself…

Circuit Protective Conductors not sleeved and cable insulation not properly enclosed within the junction box..


Above: A damaged accessory installed with heating pipework directly below. The pipe is likely  to obstruct any plug flex, with   the heat a possible cause of damage/deterioration of the flex.


Left: This was a T&E Cable installed between a concrete    floor and a wood laminate floor, with little else in between!

Chafing of the trapped cable caused this Line-Neutral fault… and a midnight call out for Fox Mico!


Right: One socket outlet, twin multi-plug adaptor, three flex cables out to appliances…

Not sure my maths is adding up here?


Above: Another example of    loose connections and their potential danger, this was a Neutral Connection, proving   exactly why Neutral’s are classed as Live conductors!


Right & Left: Main Protective Bonding Conductor ‘twisted’ together (left), and then ‘wrapped’ around gas pipe work (right).

Not too sure this is either   effective or reliable?
