Surge Protection Services
Industrial Surge Protection is far more than power strips and simple small appliances. Power surges in an industrial setting can result in equipment damage or loss as well as hazards to employees and their safety.
The NLSI has set a guildeline for industrial surge protection to ensure that industrial facilites and their employees are safe. It is imperative to understand that power surges are not just a result of lightning, but can come from many different sources including copiers, welders or air conditioners.
At Craft Electric & Maintenance, we understand that the most fundemental part of a surge protection system is proper and effective grounding. We are able to install and maintain a quality low-resistance grounding system which has a single ground reference for the entire electrical distribution facility. We also put into practice the Zones of Protection approach.
