Tech/Engineering - Electronics / Elect Eng / Spa equipment
French term or phrase: distance d\'ouverture des contacts de tous les pôles
I am putting the whole sentence below. This is a generally non-technical translation but there are a couple of technical sentences in it, safety instructions for spa equipment. I don't want to risk getting these wrong - I am not an electrician - and will also suggest the client checks these parts with an electrician-specialist, but any help appreciated. With TIA.

"Un moyen de déconnexion du réseau d'alimentation ayant une distance d'ouverture des contacts de tous les pôles doit être prévu dans les canalisations fixes"

I have:

"It is mandatory to provide a safety circuit breaker to disconnect from mains power with a contact opening distance in the electrical conduits"
