Flexibility of household electrical installations is partly necessary because people’s needs change over the time they live in a home, and because houses and flats are sometimes leased or sold. The new occupants want the electrical installation to be adaptable to their needs and wishes as far as possible.
With a strictly conventional electrical installation there is virtually no flexibility. It is usually difficult to add a switch somewhere if you are not prepared to open up the wall, to cut off and install new wiring. However, there are a number of techniques and solutions to overcome this problem, although they must be planned when the system is originally designed.
This white paper is one of a series of thematic white papers covering various aspects of electrical installations in houses, flats and residential units. They are aimed at architects, designers, specification writers, decision makers, installers and students.
