Whilst extension cords are usually safe, we do not recommend to have many of them around the house or business, or in fact have many connected together at the same time. We usually install extra power plugs to meet your needs and ensure your safety.

Some people manage to run extension cords around their houses or businesses. It is very unsafe to run extension cords and wires around the house/business. Make sure you do not run such extensions under carpets or heavy furniture as they can cause fire.

Failure to install the correct extension cord may result in severe damage and electrical shocks. Always consult your electrical professional before proceeding with any electrical installations.

You must contact your electrical professional in order to get you a new one installed, as continuing the use of a broken switch may cause electrical shocks.

GFCI stands for Ground Fault Circuit Interrupters and are designed to disconnect the circuit if there is a leakage current. By detecting small leakage currents (typically 5–30 milliamperes) and disconnecting quickly enough (<30 ms), they may prevent electrocution. 

GFCIs are usually used in bathrooms, laundry rooms and outdoors.
