Fixed and Portable Testing
The reasons to undertake Testing of your electrical insallation (Fixed Wiring testing) and portable appliances (PAT Testing) include complying with the Electricity at Work Regulations – to minimise the risk of fire and injury caused by faulty electrical wiring or appliances , to remove the risk of your insurance company disputing a claim for damage from fire through insufficient maintenance, and to comply with ISO Quality Assurance.
We provide all the necessary certification that will confirm that your electrical installation or portable appliances are safe.
Fixed Wiring Installation Testing
This is the testing of the circuits contained within the fabric of a building – the socket outlets, lighting circuits and various other circuits. How often this testing should be undertaken depends very much on the environment and use of the installation; some areas should be tested annually and others perhaps every five years. Our in-house experts can advise further.
Portable Appliance Testing
A portable appliance is any piece of equipment that can be moved from area to area and reconnected to the supply via a plug and socket system. During everyday use such appliances become worn or damaged which can lead to them becoming unsafe if not properly maintained. PAT Testing is a documented method of electrical maintenance.
