Security and Safety

The secret to a long-lasting Perkins generator is how effectively man and machine can collaborate to preserve its original performance levels.

Ensuring its safety is dependent on how smoothly the installation, operation, and maintenance aspects are addressed. And there are two levels to address that a Perkins generator is safe - on a machine level and human level.

On the machine level, security and safety are reliant upon built-in diesel phase generator design features such as:

  • Control panel viewing window in a lockable access door

  • Emergency stop push button mounted on enclosure exterior

  • Cooling fan and battery charging

  • alternator fully guarded

  • Fuel fill point lockable with fuel

  • breathing apparatus

  • Residential exhaust muffler mounted inside canopy

  • Multi-density polyester soundproofing material – Fire resistant Class 1.

  • Excellent Service and

  • Maintenance Access

  • Large doors for easy servicing

  • Radiator filling point on the roof (UK Standard)

  • Colour coded wiring looms. Transportability

  • Lift hooks/Forklift space strong enough to support whole generator.

On the human level, our acclaimed team of service engineers leave no stone unturned and cover all Perkins generators bases by following practices such as:

  1. Determining your power requirements to evaluate the right sizing and model of power backup for your business.

  2. Scouting a safe site to install your Perkins generator unit and designing protective enclosures to eliminate health hazards and minimize noise levels in populated areas.

  3. Teaching simple safety measures to customers in case they intend to personally supervise the Perkins generator operations.
