PAT Testing Procedures

Your PAT testing will be carried out by our own City and Guilds qualified, fully trained PAT testing engineers in accordance with the codes of practice for testing and service inspection of electrical appliances that are portable. We will never sub-contract out this work to another electrical company as we do all the work ourselves.

You will find that our PAT testing service is of the highest standard. We offer nothing but a first class service carried out by honest and reliable electricians.

Our prices are very reasonable compared to other local companies.

The points below detail the inspection and testing procedures which our PAT test engineers use:

Full Inspection (visual)
The portable appliance is checked over visually to ensure that it is not damaged in any way. We will then ensure that the electrical flex has no signs of damage either. The plug is looked at and examined ensuring the flex is correctly and safely secured to it. It is then opened up so we can check the fuse is correctly rated for the appliance and the wiring has been done correctly. Finally, we check for overheating and damage/splits on the plug's plastic casing.
Insulation Resistance Test
This test is used to test Class I & II appliances. We will use a 500v DC current that is passed to the electrical appliances to measure the resistance which should be within the ranges of 1.0 Mohm for Class I appliances and 2.0Mohm for Class II appliances.
Earth Continuity Test
The Earth Bond test is carried out only for class 1 appliances to check that they are earthed correctly.
Substitute Leakage Test
A gentler version of insulation resistance testing, used on appliances with voltage limiting devices.
Touch Leakage Test
Used to measure protective conductor current between earth and live parts in class I appliances or from live parts to the appliance enclosure for Class II appliances.
Polarity Test
This test checks that there are no crossed wires
Load Test or Functional Test
To confirm that the appliance operates accordingly
