BRISBANE SWITCHBOARD ELECTRICIANS

Switchboard upgrades & inspections for domestic to multi-high rise office or unit blocks.


The switchboard is the central hub for all your power, so it is vital that it is maintained and kept in safe working order. The electrical standards have dramatically changed resulting in many switchboards that do not comply with the current standards. Think of it like a car, it still works but lacks all the safety features of a new one! If you have a catastrophic failure, you could be without power from days to weeks depending on the size of the building.

We are your switchboard specialists and can help with ongoing maintenance, compliance and upgrading if required.

Residential Switchboards

Switchboards for a standard home usually contain a couple of metres and household circuits. Being the main place where power enters and is distributed throughout the home, it requires regular maintenance to ensure safety, as well as to keep meeting the needs of the occupiers – which is to keep functioning! Regular testing and inspections can pick up safety issues or identify upgrades to make the switchboard safer. An upgrade to a home switchboard is always a good investment in safety for your occupants and property.

Homes built in Australia before 1990 did NOT have a mandatory safety switch installed on the lighting circuit, potentially putting these homes in danger as they are not compliant with the current Australian standards. An electrician will be able to complete an inspection and provide recommendations to achieve greater safety and compliance.

There are a few key reasons why a switchboard will require an upgrade:

  • The frame is made from non compliant materials (chipboard/asbestos) or is breaking apart, making it a hazard.
  • If there are ceramic fuses or old and cracked breakers still being used
  • Switchboards which were installed before the year 2000
  • Any extensions to the home or building where load has increased – new appliances or pool/spa
  • If the switchboard does not comply with new metering and connection standards

While there is no official law as to how often a switchboard should be inspected, we strongly recommend that owners have an inspection every 2 years or when leaving or purchasing a new property, renovating a property or you simply see damage and unsure if it is safe or not.

Commercial & Body Corporate Switchboards

A Commercial or Body Corporate community main switchboard is an often overlooked yet critical piece of infrastructure and generally contain larger circuits (including 3 phase circuits). These switchboards are designed to handle higher loads, so safety and regular inspections are vital. Over time the switchboard degrades and falls behind the latest safety requirements and can become non-compliant to current standards. This is particularly the case for switchboards installed before the year 2000. An inspection with Fully Wired Electrical can determine the state of your switchboard and provide expert advice on what you can do to increase the safety of your supply.

Switchboard upgrades are often required when a new tenancy is taken over, therefore the requirements the business may place on the switchboard needs to be considered.

A sub-standard installation is a major safety concern to people and property, especially in the event of an electrical fault or infrastructure failure.   If the switchboard suffers a catastrophic failure the complex may suffer power loss for up days or sometimes weeks and the financial cost will be substantial to the body corporate or owners of the building.

Yes, but the time frames vary. We liaise directly with your or site contacts to give an estimated time for power outages.

Yes, we are the experts on your side to manage and communicate directly with your energy provider and Energex on your behalf. Often this can be the hardest part for owners, so we make sure we take care of this for you, organise with onsite managers and communicate in a language you can understand.

There are a few key reasons why a switchboard will require an upgrade:

  • When a new tenancy moves into a building, they often have a different power requirement, therefore the switchboard capacity may need to be increased
  • Being submerged full or partly under water from flooding events
  • The frame is made from non compliant materials (chipboard/asbestos) or is breaking apart, or is not lockable therefore making it a hazard
  • If there are ceramic fuses or old and cracked breakers still being used
  • If the switchboard which were installed before the year 2000
  • Any renovations or new major appliances installed in the building which impacts the power load
  • If your circuits require safety switches

Second time I have used Fully wired and recieved high quality work and professional workmanship. Thankyou Ethan and Dennis.
Response from the owner: Thank you so much for the 5-star review!
New lighting was required for the LCC Warehouse, and after a quick and budget friendly assessment, quote, and booking process, Ethan and Dennis arrived and completed an excellent installation. As work proceeded, it was determined that additional lights would be needed. This posed no issue and was completed at the same time. Installation was prompt and professional, with updates throughout the process. I would certainly turn to Fully Wired for all my future electrical works. Cheers Ethan and Dennis for a great install, and to all the FW Team.
Response from the owner: Thank you so much for the 5-star review! We look forward to working with you in the future.
Ethan and Dennis offered a professional, tidy, and guided installation of new downlights in both my kitchen and entertainment room. We were shown how our new downlights worked, advised when power would be going off, and offered on the spot light switch coordination where new switches were required. They left with a space the same as when they arrived (maybe even a bit cleaner) though much brighter! Thx guys, A+ 5*'s

Response from the owner: Thank you so much for the 5-star review, Brett!
We had water ingress into the main switchboard of our 19 unit apartment block, which caused a fire and irreparable damage to the switchboard and power failure to the building and surrounding streets. The body corporate manager contacted Fully Wired Tuesday morning flagging an urgent job. Liam arrived within the hour, he assessed and quoted, got a team together, ordered materials and the job was underway that afternoon. It was a massive job, completed with power restored by Thursday evening. Liam, Jay and their team worked seamlessly, efficiently and professionally, nothing was a problem; they kept us up to date on progress, and answered any queries immediately. A very impressive operation in difficult and stressful circumstances for residents in the building. Many thanks, Totally Wired.

I am extremely grateful to Ethan and Ryan for the new ceiling fan installations they carried out in my apartment today.They really did an excellent job since, being new installations, they looked for the best, most beautiful, and most efficient way to install them without having to make holes in the ceiling and therefore not having to spend more money later on roof repairs.I thank you very much for your professionalism, courtesy, punctuality, respect and how you took care of me in the best way possible.Ethan and Ryan are the type of people we need in our society today, people who not only know how to do their jobs well but also know how to take care of people, especially these days when the situation is still so hard and difficult, even more so for a single mother like me.Thank you so much Fully Wired Electrical Services from the bottom of my heart, my girls are also very happy with the new fans 😊👍

What a fantastic bunch of people! The girls in the office are so switched on and can do just about anything 😎 They were on time, and installed a hell-of-a-lot of smoke alarms faster than I could say "Fire"!But the best part was how well Ethan & Cage cleaned up after themselves. I thought I was lucky to get a couple of dudes that were polite & courteous, but these two were obviously taught well, because there was not a spec of dirt, dust or rubbish left and they managed to do everything on ladders without leaving a single mark on my polished timber floors.Well done 🙌🙌🙌
