Readable, informative and up-to-date, Sparks Electrical News is the news magazine for everyone involved in the installation and maintenance of electrical supplies and allied equipment.

Sparks is aimed mainly at the electrician and contractor – but the content has wide appeal with broad coverage and is preferred reading for those who want pertinent and relevant information.

Newsy and in touch – and educational without being intimidating – Sparks channels valuable business and buying information to its readers.  If you only have time to read one electrical publication each month, Sparks is probably it!

Features are designed to cover:

  • The safe and effective installation of electrical supplies from substation to point-of-use.
  • The effective use of electricity at low voltage in fixed and semi-permanent installations.
  • Tools, skills, know-how and techniques for accomplishing safe installations.
  • Electrical industry news from the Electrical Contractors’ Association of South Africa and the Electrical Contracting Board.

Five monthly columnists – each a specialist in his own field – share their knowledge and insights that cover skills and training, the interpretation of legislation pertaining to the electrical industry, managing a small business, and down-to-earth advice aimed at keeping electrical contractors informed and helping them to deliver the best possible service.

Sparks is endorsed by the Illumination Engineering Society of South Africa (IESSA) and new products, lighting installations and technological advances are highlighted in the lighting feature every month.

Put together by an editorial and advertising team that is in constant touch with the industry, Sparks is the news magazine most likely to be seen on the dashboard of a contractor’s bakkie without being out of place in a consulting engineer’s reception area.  

Every month, close on 7 000 copies of Sparks Electrical News are posted to subscribers all over South Africa and to a growing readership in other southern African countries.
