Do you know?

That you will not be undertaking ANY electrical work?

The Illuminated sign has 4 metres of lead and plugs into any 13amp socket - an extension lead can be used but Ri do not supply these. The sign is bolted to the wall and run the lead through the wall.

We recommend that if the customer has a need for any electrical work, they get their contractor to bolt the sign to the wall to save them money.

All electrical work must be done by a qualified tradesman.
