Professional electrical switchboard upgrade

Older buildings and homes that have fuse type switchboards pose a much higher risk of electrical fires occurring and offer very limited protection against the risk of possible electric shocks. All modern switchboard installations should have mandatory safety switches installed, under Queensland law. All Purpose Trade Solutions can carry out switchboard upgrades in your Brisbane home or business.

Do you need a switchboard update?

This is dependent entirely on what type of switchboard your have. Fuse type switchboards were the average switchboard installed in older houses. These older style of switchboard are becoming a huge fire risk as the average house electrical consumption was a lot less than to what it is now. With the introduction of air conditioners, TVs, computers, and other modern appliances your home you may be using a lot more power than what your switchboard can handle.


These older switchboards are often not fitted with safety switches either, which can be dangerous in the case of an electrical fault.


Upgrade from incoming mains power

Incoming mains are the cables that run from the point of entry to your house to the switchboard.

  • Old houses usually have 6 mm incoming mains (rated to approx. 40amps).
  • Medium size new houses have 10 mm incoming mains (rated to approx. 63amps).
  • Larger houses have 16 mm incoming mains {rated to approx. 80amps).
