are crucial for electrical use in any home or business. We all have electrical panels supplying our electricity, but whether you know it or not, some of your electrical panels could be a hazard for you and your loved ones. Zinsco panels are a brand of electrical panels that were installed across North America decades ago. Although they were initially popular because of their efficiency and cost-effectiveness, the use of Zinsco panels quickly diminished when the dangers of these panels were discovered.
Hazards of Zinsco Panels
After hundreds of similar incidents, it was found that Zinsco panels were to blame for frequent electrical shocks, short circuits, and fires. Due to significant flaws in the design of the panels, after wear and tear of the breaker, the breaker and aluminum bars in the Zinsco panel melt together. Once adhered to one another, there is no way for the breaker to trip.
If a breaker in any electrical panel cannot trip, there is no telling how much of an electrical current will flow through a system. Without anything to stop an overcurrent, the electrical panel and all that it supplies is subject to extreme heat and fires.
You could be in danger without even knowing so, if your home or business is still using a Zinsco panel.
