Both primary and secondary schools across the UK rely on functional electrical systems to create the right environment for learning, but also to make learning happen. And as technology has changed, and become increasingly important in the school environment, it can be necessary to make electrical updates for schools, so that they can fully make use of the technology, and subsequent learning opportunities, on offer. But what does this updating include? Well, here at Walker Electrical, we are Preston’s leading electrical and lighting experts. As a result, we have produced this guide to everything you should know about school based electrical updates.
What are the most important electrical updates for schools?
School buildings differ in size and shape, as well as period. With many school buildings in the UK being either Victorian, or built in the 40’s, 50’s, 60’s or 70’s, its no surprise that these buildings may need to be re-planned and updated in terms of the electrical design. Some of the updates we can offer here at Walker Electrical include:
- Electrical security systems- from exterior property security including motion sensitive cameras and CCTV, to electronic key-fobs to allow access to the building, there are a number of electrical updates that can help keep your school, staff and pupils safe. These security systems can be installed, and you can even count on us for ongoing maintenance too, here at Walker Electrical.
- Increased electrical outlets- the demand for electrical sockets could never have been predicted. But now with laptops and tablets necessary for learning, along with smart boards or video walls, the need for more sockets in each classroom is apparent. We can install these sockets safely and securely, so that learning doesn’t need to be compromised.
- Energy efficient changes- with a huge lack of funding, it can be difficult for schools to make ends meet. By switching to energy efficient lighting, you can save on your energy bills and maintenance costs every year.
