Pat Testing

We provide expert portable electrical appliance testing (PAT) using the latest technology.

What is pat testing?

PAT testing is a preventative safeguard against electrical failure. Most often conducted on an annual basis, PAT testing is provided by our experienced team of engineers to quickly and efficiently provide you with an insight into the health of your electronic inventory.

Electrical work like PAT testing must only be carried out by experts with the knowledge and experience needed to avoid danger to themselves and others.Our team work hard to minimise disruption when undertaking your PAT testing, letting you go about your day whilst we complete our checks and provide you with a clean bill of electrical health.

Afterwards, you’ll receive our PAT testing report, proving your compliance with relevant legislation.

Why PAT testing is important

Electrical appliances may seem easy to maintain – but if they’re not properly looked after, they can cause big problems. By regularly PAT testing, you can prevent the risk of fire, damage to buildings and associated loss of life.

It is often required by insurance and will need to be conducted to ensure compliance with contracts and specific laws, including the Electricity at Work Act and ISO 9001.

Prevention is always better (and more affordable) than the cure. Preventative maintenance like PAT testing allows you to find a problem before it happens, and rest easy knowing you’re protected.
