While you undoubtedly have wall sockets in your home or business, you may want to consider floor sockets. Floor sockets are outlets installed on the floor. They’re convenient for open spaces as there may not be nearby outlets. Plus, the use of multiple extension cords can be a fire hazard if they’re overloaded. If you’re interested in floor sockets, read on to learn more from Tim Kyle Electric, a Harford County electrician.
The Advantages of Floor Sockets
Floor sockets provide ease of access. For example, with a floor outlet, your computer can be plugged in within the proximity of your desk. Within an industrial setting, tools can be plugged in close to workbenches. Floor sockets also help eliminate cords trailing across the room. This eliminates tripping hazards. They’re also equipped with protective covers to protect from electric shocks when not in use. In addition, covers prevent the outlets from becoming damaged. Plus, they add aesthetic appeal by cutting down on cable clutter and create an organized cabling system.
They’re designed differently for each type of flooring whether you have concrete or wood. Some are built to pop up when the outlet is turned on and meet the floor’s level when they’re not. Or they can be installed flush with the floor. They’re relatively easy to install, and a professional electrician install them quickly and efficiently.
