Get the facts about PAT testing
PAT Testing is the process of testing all electrical appliances both visually and manually to determine if they are fit to use.
Our experienced engineers will test:
- Signs of damage to both the supply cord (IEC lead) and appliance
- Switch functionality
- Correct fuse fitting and type
- Live, Neutral and Earth wire integrity
- Inspection of the plug and leads
By conducting a thorough examination of all of the relevant factors, we provide you with full documentation to prove that your PAT test was completed properly and effectively – all included in the service!
Our PAT testers guarantee your safey and legal compliance
