Essential points in ordering commercial electrical panels
Electrical panel order criteria
Industrial electrical panels are critical equipment for correctly distributing electrical energy in the circuit. The electrical panel is the electrical center of a commercial building or facility. If not properly constructed or maintained, it can cause a lot of trouble and pose many safety risks. Therefore, it is essential to order the right electrical panel from a reliable supplier, such as KCS Group. This article will help you check the critical points needed before buying a commercial electrical panel and making the best decision in purchasing the device.

Generally, factors and criteria affect buying a commercial electrical panel. I have collected the most important ones for you below:
Type of electrical panels
Today, three types of commercial electrical panels are available to you, low-pressure electrical panels, medium-pressure electrical panels, and high-pressure electrical panels. In consultation with the experts of KCS Group, determine the type of device you need. Here, you should pay attention to factors such as the level of current and voltage required, whether the device is fixed or modular, and custom capabilities such as resistance to water and dust penetration. It will be the first step to ordering the right electrical panel.
Electrical panel safety
The priority in ordering a commercial electrical panel is always the safety of the people and the commercial building. It would be best to minimize environmental hazards and select equipment that meets all safety requirements. Before any purchase, consult a trusted electrician and ask for all the details and specifications of the required equipment. You should also install it properly and ensure everything is connected correctly and in place. It is mandatory to use all kinds of life-saving keys, earth keys and other safety equipment. Feel free to contact KCS Group experts for commercial electrical panel installation.
If you are still planning to order an electrical panel, make sure that the room designed for the electrical equipment is spacious enough and well-ventilated. Unfortunately, in most cases, electrical rooms are left at the end of a construction project, resulting in tiny spaces. Space is essential when preparing or if additional equipment is needed. Choose an indoor or outdoor electrical panel. In this case, if you choose to install it in the open space, you should pay special attention to the material of the device body so that harsh weather conditions and dust do not negatively affect the system’s performance.
Equipment such as commercial electrical panels has a long life span and can last up to 40 years if properly maintained. If most of the parts and equipment inside are appropriately adjusted and maintained, you will not need to replace them. So, it’s good to plan for the future and anticipate any additional needs that may arise down the road now.
You can ensure the efficiency of your commercial electrical panel thanks to several solutions. To begin with unexpected events, you should choose a panel that can perform necessary procedures remotely. In an overnight or weekend power outage, the generator should be fully operational without requiring anyone to enter. Another aspect is the performance of the commercial electrical panel. Especially with large equipment, you should make it easy to work with and introduce colour coding. Labels and signs can be confusing, while colours are a much simpler solution. Also, ensure the switches are mechanically interlocked in case of electrical control failure. You cannot link resources.
Reputation and credibility of the manufacturer
Choose a reputable electrical panel manufacturer with a good portfolio. A company with a good reputation offers high-quality products and good customer service. When choosing a reputable company, KCS Group, you will have a good quality product with an extended warranty period. In addition, you can expect the professional staff of this company to be able to guide you in all possible choices and provide you with the best solution. After such a purchase, you will gladly leave your other business electrical needs to the same company.
Manufacturer’s experience and expertise
If you are looking for custom equipment, an essential factor to consider is a company’s experience level. Many providers can offer standardized solutions; however, you need an expert when designing more advanced ones. Look for a company with extensive experience in complex and customized solutions for large enterprises. Most likely, such a company is fearless of any challenge. Feel free to contact KCS Group.
Duration of construction
Before buying an electrical panel, ensure that a company can provide the products you need on time, especially if you are short on time and need the equipment urgently. Remember to ask if the company has enough equipment and if they can provide you with additional equipment on short notice if required. Choose a more prominent supplier with a large inventory if you have an urgent need.
You need a professional electrician to install a commercial electrical panel. A company that knows the market well can guide you to a reliable electrician, such as KCS Group. If you need a general contractor, ask your supplier for a recommendation.
Warranty and after-sales service
Make sure you read, understand and agree to the terms and conditions of the warranty before purchasing. In case of any doubts, contact your supplier to avoid unpleasant surprises while installing and using the commercial electrical panel.
The last word
