Portable Appliance Testing (PAT)
The PAT test complies with all legal requirements and may even qualify you for a discount on your insurance premiums, as it proves how seriously you take safety issues. In the event of any damages claims, your PAT certificate proves that your electrical equipment & installations have been tested and certified.
Non-compliance with PAT standards can lead to severe punishments for corporations and landlords, ranging from fines to imprisonment. We therefore recommend that all relevant portable appliances are tested regularly by a competant qualified person.
PAT testing includes:
- visual inspection
- earth bond test
- insulation resistance test
- load test
- earth leakage test
- functional check
Each appliance is comprehensively tested to meet the exacting requirements of the IEE code of practice for In-Service Inspection and Testing of Electrical Equipment. We use the latest PAT testing equipment and are able to test all portable appliances in your company including - IT equipment, microwaves, 230V & 110V site equipment. The inspection and testing will be carried out by a fully qualified electrical testing engineer.
All electrical equipment to be tested has to be disconnected from the mains supply. We realise the inconvenience that this can cause, especially in a busy office environment, that is why we provide an out of hours service at no extra cost.
