What is PAT Testing
PAT testing is the process of testing appliances both visually and electronically to determine whether or not they are safe to use.
Our experienced engineers test the following:
- Signs of damage to the appliance and the supply cord (IEC lead)
- The functionality of the switch
- Whether the fuse is the correct type and how well the fuse is connected
- The integrity of the live, neutral and earth wires
- A thorough visual inspection of both the plug and leads
By conducting a thorough check on all of these vital factors, we can provide you will all the documentation you need to prove that your PAT Test was completed properly and effectively, all as part of the cost of our standard service.
