Power Outlet Recessing

Edited Background picture

What’s wrong with this Picture?

For me it’s the huge gap between the bed-side table and the wall, I’m not sure about you but it drives me crazy. Not only is it unsightly and inconvenient – the numbers of times i’ve dropped my phone down the back of that table – it also encroaches on the usable space in the room.Edited Background picture

The cultprit is always the same:


Lamp plugs and phone charges push furniture off walls, be it bedside tables, fridges, televisions or cabinetry. Not only is this unsightly it often results in damage to the plugs themselves and can be electrically hazardous.

North Gold Coast Electrical’s solution in this instance was to fix the problem and eliminate the hazard by recess mounting the outlet itself.


By recess mounting the power outlet and using a fitting with an integrated fast charge USB outlet I’ve both eliminate the need for a bulky phone charge block and have been able to protect the Lamp plug inside the recess.

The result:


Annoying & ugly gap almost completely eliminated.
Using these recesses is a great solution for any cabinetry or appliance whose plug base is forcing them off the wall, that might mean your fridge sits back flush with surrounding cabinetry or that you don’t have to void your TV’s warranty by replacing the plug with a side-mount plug when installing to a slimline wall bracket.

Installation of a recessed outlet involves hard-wiring of electrical installations, it should not be attempted by anyone other then a licensed electrician.

Project Complete: Parklands Christian College Sports Hall


North Gold Coast Electrical has recently completed one of its biggest projects to date, a covered sports hall/multipurpose use building at Parklands Christian College.

The project commenced in late 2016 and was completed in February.

Our works included extensive sub-mains to power the building, control cabling for existing services such as sewer pumping sub stations, fibre connection into the main building and the integration of new services with the schools existing services.

What is Thermal Imaging?

Thermal Test Art

North Gold Coast Electrical is a full service Gold Coast based electrician, our team is experienced in a range of fields including electrical installations and servicing, communications cabling and servicing and the supply and installation of electronic security systems such as alarms and intercoms.

Part of our service is attending homes and businesses to thermally image their switchboards and electrical installations. Thermal imaging is an exciting advancement in our industry and North Gold Coast Electrical is proud to be part of the forefront of this technology.

If you would like to know more about thermal imaging and the ways North Gold Coast Electrical can use this technology for you then give us a call today or read on through this post.

What is Thermal Imaging

Thermal Imaging uses the science of thermography to identify radiating heat levels and produce an infra-red image.

Thermal Test Art

Because thermal cameras can see radiating heat they provide a safe and effective means for an electrician to look at any electrical installation and immediately see if there are unusual heat levels in cabling or electrical appliances.


There are several reasons why excessive heats should be a cause of concern  for property owners, tenants and employees. North Gold Coast Electricals team of experience Electricians early intervention can provide a range of benefits:


Excessive heats in cabling installations are caused most often by higher then expected electrical currents, an electrical current works like water pressure forcing electricity through your premises. Where loose terminals, shoddy workmanship or damaged cables cause increases in electrical current

Quality Assurance

As electricians, we are regularly called to homes and businesses that have suffered nuisance tripping of circuit breakers or associated failures in their switchboard. Often these nuisance trips are caused by loose terminals and poor connections in electrical switchgear. Taking thermal images of electrical installations can identify these concerns before they occur and save time and money by avoiding power losses.


North Gold Coast Electrical is a Gold Coast based, family owned and operated electrician whose highest priority is safety. Not just for our staff but also for our valued clients and the public. Electrical faults with high temperatures can ignite flammable materials in roof-spaces and walls. In recent years incidences of resulting fires have surged and their tragic and costly consequences are regularly noted in the media.

So call North Gold Coast Electrical today to get a quote on having your place inspected today!
