The Commercial Electrical Services We Offer
Below is a list of commercial electrical repair, inspection and installation services on offer for local business owners.
CCTV Security Inspections
For any business owner, security is a constant source of anxiety. Those with publicly accessible properties to guard have double the stress, so maintenance of CCTV cameras and other electronic security systems is of paramount importance. Industrial electricians specialise in inspecting and repairing the unique security features of commercial buildings.
Working alarm systems are also an absolute necessity for commercial properties. In the event of a fire emergency, smoke detectors need to be fully functional, as do burglar alarms in the event of security breaches.
General Electrical Testing and Maintenance
Commercial electricians are capable of performing thorough testing procedures and general maintenance for electrical systems throughout an estate, ensuring that all are functioning correctly and safely.
Solar Thermal Installation
Installation of sustainable energy generators like solar thermal panels is a great way to demonstrate your business’s commitment to reducing energy emissions and promoting environmental awareness. We at B. A. Boyle are experienced bastions of renewable energy and our team can fit the solar cell panels to any desired location for the most efficient gathering of solar energy.
Whether your property is in dire need of a lighting upgrade, you have a flickering neon sign or you simply have a burst bulb, make sure to call us today to arrange for cutting edge lighting installation and repair.

When is a Commercial Electrician Contractor Required?
If you are unsure about whether you fit the requirements for a commercial electrician for your particular issues, see below for some guidelines that can help you decide if this package is most suitable for you.
Owner of a commercial property?
Essentially, commercial properties are buildings used exclusively for business or enterprising purposes. They can be either private or publicly accessible and can include shops, restaurants, warehouses, factories, surgeries, data centres, etc. Almost any building that is not classed as a domestic residential property is therefore under the purview of our commercial property specialists.
Encountering issues with electrical equipment in your commercial property?
Issues with security, cabling, lighting and more can arise in commercial properties – these are well within the purview of our commercial specialists. Make sure to contact this service if you are encountering these issues.
If these points align with your situation, please don’t hesitate to call
And that’s that! If you own a commercial property and have encountered an electrical issue that needs to be quickly rectified, get in contact with B. A. Boyle’s friendly customer service team to arrange a specialist electrician visit.
What can commercial electricians do?
Commercial electricians are trained to deal with a variety of electrical issues in corporate properties. They can repair, install and perform safety checks on a number of appliances, including CCTV cameras, light bulbs, security alarms, solar panels and broadband cables, among others. We detail the range of services commercial electricians can perform throughout this page.
How many commercial electricians are in the UK?
There are roughly 40,000 independent electrician businesses in the UK, though this number does not reflect the total number of individual electricians, which is certainly much higher. Commercial electricians are actually quite rare in the UK – relatively speaking, only a few have the full licenses to work on commercial properties, so we are very lucky to have some fully qualified industrial experts on our growing team. They are truly among B. A. Boyle's best USPs!
How often should commercial electrical installations be tested?
Per government guidelines brought into law by the various Electrical Safety Certificate Acts that have been gradually put into legislation in recent years, electrical installations must be tested and evaluated every five years, at least. An EICR or Electrical Installation Condition Report will be written up by an experienced professional. Regular testing is absolutely essential for commercial properties due to their exposure to the public and to employees, whose safety should be prioritised at all times.
Where can commercial electricians work?
Licenced commercial electricians can perform repair and maintenance work in retail shops, offices, restaurants, pubs, factories, shipyards or any other area that can be classed as a commercial property. As for the more specific areas within these locations, you can find commercial electricians working in wiring outlets, ceilings, floorboards and more.
Who regulates commercial electricians in the UK?
Various government-approved organisations are capable of regulating and qualifying electricians for the workplace, most notably the NICEIC – National Inspection Council for Electrical Installation Contractors – the group that has approved most of our electrical professionals. Other syndicates that have authority throughout England and Wales are Blue Flame, NAPIT and ELECSA. Commercial electricians require additional qualifications and licencing to work on business properties.
