Gimpel Electrics has been ready to assist clients for over 35 years, whether you are a business owner, manager or supervisor, our experienced staff will ensure professional and reliable service for all your Commercial and Industrial electrical needs. Our friendly team will provide prompt and efficient service for anything power, lighting or emergency repair related.

For jobs required to be performed outside of shop or workshop hours, Gimpel Electrics can help by coordinating a suitable time.
When it comes to safety in an emergency, your customers and staff are your first priority. We have all seen how quickly fires can progress and consume a building and your staff could be relying on your illuminated signs to evacuate your business as quickly and safely as possible. Having a certified exit lighting strategy is paramount to a safe environment, but not just that, when was the last time your business performed its six-monthly emergency lighting inspection compliant with AS/NZS 2293.2:2019? Gimpel Electrics is happy to perform these emergency lighting inspections, repairs and installations.
A clean environment will help prevent trips and falls, but all too often we run over our extension leads, leave the sandwich press too close to the wall, or pull on the vacuum by its lead. Without performing Test & Tag on your appliances, you may have no knowledge of any damaged leads or appliances where even the damage may be internal. Gimpel Electrics are trained to perform and report Test & Tag as per AS/NZS 3760:2010 using some of the latest devices around and can return a digital report of all the appliances tested.
After prevention comes your life line in the form of a safety switch. Safety switches are designed to protect your staff and customers by sensing a short down to earth or an imbalance on the circuit. They are required on all power circuits as a minimum and any alterations on any circuit 32A or less will require a safety switch by law. These devices are not to be confused with circuit breakers or fuses as they do not protect people but are designed to protect the wiring of a circuit and trip due to overload and short circuit between active and neutral. In a commercial or industrial environment, safety switches are required to be tested as per AS/NZS 3000:2018 which includes a metered test and logbook filled out as well by push button test periodically. Gimpel Electrics’ trained staff are more than happy to organise a time that best suits you when all power can be turned off for a short testing period, inside or outside general work hours. If we do find any faults we will liaise with you to find the best time for these repairs to be carried out so as to keep any disruption to your business as minimal as possible.
For those businesses looking to prevent future electrical issues in the switchboard, Gimpel Electrics is more than happy to organise a thermal inspection with a qualified technician and deliver a report of the findings. This procedure may be performed during nominal work hours and best done when a heavy load is in operation and a high draw of current is present. If any of the findings present a risk and are required to be repaired, we will be more than happy to organise a time when suitable to perform a shutdown on the switchboard and rectify the found fault.
Business needs are changing all the time. Gimpel Electrics can assist you with your phone and data installation and relocation including moving the NBN hub to a more effective location. Are you installing office screens in your business, you may require power and data where your staff will be seated at convenient intervals.
As a business, you may find you are not fully aware of the power usage your business utilises. Gimpel Electrics offers the ability to report on your power usage over a period of time and help reduce your power bills by identifying spikes in usage and load balancing. This report may be used to identify whether a switchboard is at full capacity, or if you have the ability to install your new machine or appliance.
If you do find your power bills are a little high and wish to reduce them, LED technology can help cover that avenue. Your standard shop lights, hi-bay lights and even car park lights may be drawing a bit more than you realise and you may benefit by replacing your power hungry lighting to LED. This benefits you in a few ways including consistent lighting throughout relieving stress on your eyes, a change in colour to highlight your products and even enhance the light output. Gimpel Electrics have many options available, so do not hesitate in calling us to see how we can help reduce your power consumption.
In the midst of all the business requirements these days, don’t forget the essentials. Do you require communal or bathroom ventilation replacements. Gimpel Electrics will be happy to assist you in replacing or upgrading extraction fans where ever they may be, including on the roof or in ceilings. Don’t hesitate to call us with any electrical query you may have regarding your commercial or industrial property.
No matter what the job, big or small, Gimpel Electrics is here to help and will be happy to advise you on what options you have to achieve your end goal. To arrange a quote call us now or fill out our contact form where we will happily return to you at a convenient time.
