Our industrial customers range from manufactures of car parts, printers and the food industry. Many of these companies we have been taking care of the electrical needs for twenty years.  

All our electricians have worked in the food factories, and know that high standards of hygiene are essential at all times, and follow the procedures required by the customer. 

We also have IPAF (International Power Access Federation) trained operatives who operate the cherry picker so any outside lighting and electrical work can be carried out safely.

Portable Appliance Testing


Portable appliance testing is the Inspection and Testing of In-Service Electrical equipment known as PAT testing, it was introduced to enable organisations and companies to comply with the Electricity at Work Regulations. To meet these Regulations it is necessary to have in place a schedule of Inspection and Electrical Safety Testing of portable appliances.
The regulations cover all items of in-service electrical equipment. It is usual for this equipment to be connected to the electrical supply via a plug and socket, however it also covers items connected by industrial plugs or hard wired via a fused connection unit.
 

The Tests involved
The testing is carried in two stages.
1. Visual Inspection

• The condition of the flexible cable
• The appliance
• The fuse rating
• The plug head

2. Electrical Test  

• Earth Continuity test
• Insulation Test
• Functional Test

Minor faults found during the Inspection and Test can be repaired on site with the appliance being re-tested to ensure it passes. Examples of these are replacement of correct rated fuses for the appliance, replacement of plug tops and replacement of the flexible cord. More serious faults will always be quoted first prior to commencement
On completion of the Inspection and test all items will be labelled with either the pass or fail safety sticker as required. A full detailed report will be provided .
