Knight Power Electrical Pty Ltd is experienced in planning and installation of lighting, power and cabling for your shed. Some considerations are listed below.
- How to connect power to your shed
- Whether single phase or three phase power is necessary
- The appropriate type of lighting for a residential shed
- Custom installation of equipment, such as hoists, welders, lathes, or other machinery.
We help plan lighting and power layouts for your shed to suit your purposes. We supply bright and energy efficient LED fittings for close-up work, and general lighting. Power design is essential to allow for enough power in your shed. All of our cabling is enclosed in conduit for safety and aesthetics.
Below ground cabling
Although below ground cabling requires digging a trench, which can be done by hand or with a machine, it can be an efficient option for long distances. You can either hire an electrician to do the installation or do it yourself to save costs, but it’s recommended to consult with an electrician first to ensure the proper depth and proximity to the switchboard. The advantage of below ground cabling is that it will be out of the way and ready to operate without issues once installed.
Lighting for home sheds
When choosing lighting for your home shed, consider using fluorescents or LED high bay lights for optimal brightness. For close-up work, plan power points to minimize cords on the floor and consider moveable lights. Power outlets hanging from the ceiling are another option, allowing for moveable work lights and convenient access for equipment stored against a wall but used in the center of the work area.
- Electrical Setup for Your Shed: Plan the electrical setup for your shed, considering power connection, single phase or three-phase power requirements, appropriate lighting, and custom installation of equipment.
- Below Ground Cabling for Efficient Installation: Explore the option of below ground cabling, which involves digging a trench, for efficient installation over long distances, either by hiring an electrician or consulting one for guidance on depth and proximity to the switchboard.
- Optimal Lighting Solutions for Home Sheds: Choose fluorescent or LED high bay lights for bright illumination in your home shed, plan power points to minimize cords on the floor, and consider moveable lights or power outlets hanging from the ceiling for convenient access to equipment.
- Safety and Accessibility Considerations for Shed Electrical Setup: Prioritize safety by ensuring the correct cable size to prevent voltage drop, being cautious of hazards for moving vehicles and property maintenance with above ground cabling, and designing a setup that allows easy access to equipment stored against walls in the center of the work area.
