Is DesignerSplash safe to be installed over new and existing sources of power?
Yes it is as long as you follow this safety procedure. PSP DesignerSplash has an aluminium face, which is conductive to electricity. In situations where there is any kind of power point, switch, light fitting or wire running behind the sheet, an earth connection must be made. PSP recommends using a crimp lug (a simple screw connector) that connects to a bonding wire which runs down the back of the sheets. They also recommends that the installation of the earthing be carried out by a registered electrician. As a minimum a registered electrician should confirm that the earthing has been correctly installed.
