Why Partial Arc Fault Protection Is Not Enough

Each year, arc faults are responsible for more than 28,000 home fires, injuring or killing hundreds of people and
causing more than $700 million in property damage1. Yet, arc fault circuit protection is still only mandated for

it, and electrical contractors need to get on board.
