Fork Lift Circuit And Wiring Services In Columbia

Fork Lift Circuit And Wiring Services In Columbia

Almost all warehouses and flex spaces in Columbia and elsewhere have one piece of equipment in common: the forklift. It is the most universally helpful piece of heavy equipment since warehouses make the most of their floor plan by storing it upwards. Forklifts are often electrically charged, so your commercial building needs a forklift charger. These chargers have such a heavy draw that they require their circuit. If you need to update your forklift chargers or install new ones, TriStar Electric has the skills and experience to help. We can install new dedicated circuits for your forklift chargers so that you don’t have to worry about anything slowing down your warehouse operations. Call TriStar Electric today!

Understanding The Value Of Your Forklifts For Your Columbia-Area Warehouse

Forklifts and their “cousins,” side loaders and pallet jacks, are essential equipment for any warehouse. Pallet jacks are small, compact, easy-to-use equipment for moving palleted goods in tight conditions. Side loaders are used to load containers on or off a chassis or to stack them. The forklift, pallet jacks, and side loaders (if they are electric) need their circuit for charging. TriStar Electric can also install this type of circuit. We can handle everything connected to the forklift charger circuit installation and wiring, including running the wiring from the main electric panel to the electric forklift charger and installing the circuit. TriStar Electric can install circuits with three-phase or single-phase wiring. Once that is all done, we can even install the forklift charger. We can handle all forklift charger services, including repairs, replacements, reconfigurations, and relocations.

Avoid Common Forklift Circuit Problems In Columbia By Hiring A Commercial Electrician You Can Trust

We have a trusted team of professional electricians who you can count on to solve your commercial electrical issues. We can and will install your new forklift charging circuit correctly without worrying about us making the common mistakes that could happen with less skilled electricians.

  • Open Circuit: Essentially, a broken circuit where the wiring has disconnected at some point (usually due to continual chafing against another object or because of bending wires), connectors have eroded, or switches are faulty.
  • Shorted Circuit: A shorted circuit is when the fuse blows out or a circuit breaker trips because a low-resistance circuit receives too much electrical current.
  • Ground Fault: Grounding electrical circuits connect to the shortest and most efficient path to ground, and typically, one forklift circuit should be grounded, but a second grounded circuit can cause an electrical short.

If your current electrical system has any of these problems, we can correct them.
