Standby generators for business backup from SLG will keep your business running in the event of a power cut. What is a standby generator? It's a device that will provide your company with the power it needs to operate in lieu of mains, automatically. When a power outage occurs the standby generator will automatically start, usually within 5 seconds. A standby generator will keep your power on and your business running the whole time you are without mains electricity. Standby generator are usually installed outside in a weatherproof enclosure, acoustically treated to keep noise levels as low as possible. A standby generator runs on diesel, occasionally gas.
At SLG we supply generators from the ranges of 10KVA - 200KVA
Installation of your generator will be carried out professionally if you choose SLG as your supplier. Your generator must be installed by qualified engineers or electricians to ensure it is fit for purpose and will operate as it has been designed to. Equally important is the electrical installation of power and auxiliary cables to ensure safe termination close to your consumer unit (fuse board). All commercial generator installations are carried out by '18th Edition' qualified electricians who will certify works on completion.
There is a potential danger, if you were to choose to ‘go-it-alone’ and have the generator installed by another contractor or by yourself, that you could inadvertently invalidate the Warranty and possibly cause danger to yourself and your Business. For business backup generator installations SLG use professionally qualified mechanical and electrical engineers who are familiar with commercial and industrial applications. SLG will issue RAMS, a Health and Safety Policy Statement and full method statements, including drawings as necessary.
For certain businesses it is essential your generator functions as you expect it to, so that when you experience a power cut, for any reason, your generator takes over and provides the supply whilst mains is off. It is easy to overlook the importance of getting the generator installation absolutely right; it is as important as buying the hardware in the first place.
A SLG installation will give you the peace of mind and protection when you need it most and will support your home or business automatically. Your generator will typically run on diesel, sometimes gas (LPG) fuel. The generator installation will ensure that your generator delivers power directly to your business infrastructure, backing up your entire system or just the essential and critical items.

Generator service and maintenance
Generator servicing is an important part of your backup armoury. Regardless of how frequently you run or use your generator, a full service should be carried out at least once a year to make sure your machine will work as and when you want it to. Regular maintenance, even at intervals of 12 months, can highlight component wear or malfunction of certain parts. Just when you may need your generator most, a failure could occur which you could have prevented. If you own a car you get it serviced, the same rule applies with a generator. Generator servicing is a good idea, don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. Remember, if you buy a new generator and do not service or maintain it in line with the manufacturer’s guidelines, any future claim under warranty is likely to be invalidated.
If your generator already own a generator and an integral part of your electrical infrastructure have over experienced in-field service electricians and engineers who can come directly to you.
A planned program of generator maintenance for commercial and industrial applications as well as home backup should always be considered an essential part of any standby power protection system.
