Hager has brought out a technical guide to surge protection.
The 20-page guide details the risks from an electrical surge, the AQ criteria method for a risk assessment, selecting the devices, installation, cascading devices to create an SPD system and inspection and testing.
Chris Howells, product manager for Hager, said: “Amendment 1 has increased the demand for surge protection in both commercial and domestic properties.
“There is some confusion about the whole area of surge protection, whether it is needed, what level is required and also how and where to install it. This guide aims to provide answers in a clear and concise way.”
The twenty page guide is available from Hager or can be downloaded from their website www.hager.co.uk.
