New Safety-Switch RCD RCBO installations and regulations ~

The latest RCD installation regulations require safety switches on all sub-circuits in Western Australia.  We install RCD and RCBO safety switches from Perth to Rockingham.  Call 0404 216 333 or email us today to find out more.

Find out about the new RCD regulations.

ALL domestic sub-circuits are now required to be RCD protected. In many instances you will need your switchboard replaced to accommodate the new safety switches.

My clients often ask what is the difference between an RCD and an RCBO?

Below is an image of the new style single pole CLIPSAL RCBO safety switch. 


Below is the image of the old style double pole RCD safety switch.


The new regulations that are now in effect only apply to new homes under construction however if you are having additional renovations done to an existing home and require a new sub circuit to be installed it will require an RCD safety switch. This can be for an air conditioner unit, hot water system or oven. It applies to all sub circuits so not just lighting and power points.
