GFCI Protection In The Kitchen

On April 2, 2019 Written by JLC Electrical Contractors Written by Leave a Comment

GFCI Protection Is Important In Commercial & Residential Kitchens

Ground fault circuit interrupter, commonly known as GFCI, protected receptacles are critical to ensure safe operations in kitchens, bathrooms or any other place inside or outside your home or business where there is moisture. Electrical appliances that are not properly maintained, damaged electrical cords, wet floors are just a few things that can cause harm without GFCI protection. The National Electrical Code (NEC) requires that all receptacles (including 15- and 20A, 125V receptacles) be GFCI-protected, irrespective of whether they are located in countertop areas. More sensitive than circuit breakers, they act faster to protect you, your staff or patrons from electric shock which causes burns, heart arrhythmia or nervous system damage, even death.
