Security Lighting Installation in St. Albans

Now Autumn is upon us and the evenings are drawing in, customer enquiries for security lighting in St. Albans has certainly gone up a notch.

Sometimes an area seems to be unlucky at certain times and you constantly keep hearing reports of break-in’s or attempted ones to peoples properties or vehicles. Unfortunately our lovely village Bricket Wood where we are based, is being targeted a fair bit at the moment with our ¬†local facebook pages alerting people to these crimes.¬†Though it’s unsettling, it is of course better to know so you can try to prevent it happening where possible.

A customer contacted us after being concerned and wanted us to advise and suggest some security lighting that would hopefully prevent their house being a target. Following a site visit by our estimator Michael to discuss their requirements and to give advice on what we would recommend, we emailed some photos of security lights we would recommend to see if this was what they had in mind. Once we knew what style was liked, a quotation was sent for our clients consideration.

The client kindly instructed us to carry out the works which we did this week, thankfully on one of the few ‘no rain’ days! We replaced some existing outside lighting and installed security lights with PIR sensors to the back and side of the house which worked nicely with the already existing front of house lighting.

A neighbour noticed our electrician carrying out the install and expressed how equally concerned with security they were also as their car had been broken into only the week before. Our estimator Michael will be meeting with them next week to discuss their requirements which may also involve CCTV.

Whatever your concerns, budget or type of property you have, Fulcher Edwards can discuss your requirements and offer advise to help you feel like your property is less of a target for potential burglars. We cover St. Albans and all most of Hertfordshire and London so why not get in touch for an no-obligation quotation.

SafeContractor Approved Electrician

When looking for an electrician in St. Albans, people look for good reviews, recommendations, costs and sometimes check they are registered, but do you consider using a Company that is SafeContractor accredited?

SafeContractor is an accreditation which demonstrates to potential customers that your Company meets specific standards of health and safety. SafeContractor reviews and audits health and safety policies, procedures and documentation and only when they are satisfied do you received your accreditation.

Fulcher Edwards Ltd has been SafeContractor accredited for many years and prides its self on being health and safety compliant in all of our works, big or small. Each year we are audited and have to prove our competence by showing all our Health and Safety documents such as our Policies, our Method Statements and Risk Assessments and proving our electricians are fully qualified and trained on things such as step ladder use and access equipment.

Customers usually expect Health and Safety to come as standard but unfortunately there are many electricians out there that are not carrying out safe working practises and putting you and your property at risk. The horror stories you read about tradespeople are usually companies or sole traders that don’t follow simple Health and Safety guidelines or believe in qualifications. Both of these are fundamental in providing a safe working environment for staff and customers as well as providing a job well done.

This accreditation isn’t just for electricians but for all trades and covers all sectors and industries, so it is worth checking the electricians or builders you are considering have the SafeContractor badge on their website, letterheads or vans. We have our Certificate on the office on our wall to show that we are accredited and often forward a copy to prospective customers to give them peace of mind when giving us electrical or maintenance works.

Next time you are looking for a electrician then why not ask the question if they are SafeContractor approved as well as all the other questions you have when making a decision on which Company to use.
