Every building, whether it is residential, commercial or industrial, relies on a safe and uninterrupted supply of electrical power. BEAMA members manufacture virtually all of the low voltage equipment found in buildings, and our industry aim is to deliver products that give the peace of mind which comes hand in hand with performance and safety standards compliance. Electrical installation equipment contributes not only to safety but also energy efficiency, and BEAMA works with its members to influence standards and regulations that deliver against these twin objectives.
Building Electrical Systems
The BES (Building Electrical Systems) sector consists of BEAMA members who are leading manufacturers of products associated with electrical distribution for the residential, commercial and industrial building segments.
The product areas that are currently covered by this sector are: Cable Management Systems, House Service Cut-outs, Circuit Protection Devices, Enclosure Systems, including domestic consumer units, distribution boards and panel boards, LV Distribution Switchboards, Feeder Pillars, Busbar Trunking and Switch and Fuse-gear.
The sector is focused on supporting the development and maintenance of product standards at UK, EU and International level via our active and experienced technical committees. BEAMA is also represented at JPEL/64, Electrical Installations of Buildings, which is the joint IET/BSI technical committee responsible for the maintenance and development of the UK wiring regulations. The groups provide regular responses to government requests for support and consultations on subjects such as improving electrical safety.
Member companies are also working together across industry to support the Implementation of digitalisation projects in the UK such as Building information modeling (BIM).
