Planning to renovate your bathroom? This is the perfect opportunity not only to retrofit socket outlets, but also to update any sockets you already have. Safety standards for socket outlets in the bathroom have changed over the years. Socket outlets for hairdryers, electric toothbrushes and shavers must be equipped with RCD protection, and all socket outlets in bathrooms must be installed in specific areas of the room. These rules help to mitigate risks arising from short circuits or from water getting into electrical appliances. Always consult a local specialist partner for advice.
