Wall Socket Faults (Overheating)

Project: Replacing Wall Sockets

Client: Large Retailer

Date: November, 2022

Location: Glasgow

Socket damage from heat #1

Project Detail

We were recently called out to a large retailer, who was having problems with a couple of their wall sockets.

As you can see from the photos, there was visible heat damage & the socket faces were cracked (obvious H&S risk).

It turns out that a 2kW heater had been plugged into the wall for 8hrs continuously.

When the socket had overheated & stopped working, it was just moved to the next socket…which is why all four were damaged.

The sockets were replaced & advice was given about changing the way the space was heated.
