ELECTRICAL INSPECTION AND TESTING

Electrical Inspection and Testing or EICR (Electrical Installation Condition Report) are the terms given to the regime of tests which are carried out to ensure the electrical wiring, connections and equipment in your premises are compliant with the Electricity at work regulations (1989) and BS7671: 2008 Amendment 3. The purpose is to ensure safety of all people using or living in the premises.

EMERGENCY LIGHTING TEST

Emergency lighting is required in all non domestic buildings. This is a safety critical system which in the event of a fire or loss of power will help you to evacuate the building. BS5266-1 2016 are the regulations which set out the testing and verification process for emergency lighting, all our engineers are trained in carrying out inspections to these standards.

24/7 MAINTENANCE AND REPAIR

We carryout routine maintenance and repair, along with any remedial work arising after testing and inspection. If required we can deliver 24/7 maintenance cover to existing clients.

PORTABLE APPLIANCE TESTING (PAT)

PAT is the examination of any equipment which plugs into your electrical installation ie kettle, toaster, printer etc. A PAT test will determine if the appliance is safe for continued use, and will flag any visual defects at the same time. According to the Health and Safety Executive, there are approximately 1,000 major electrical related injuries reported each year. These can involve burns and electrical shocks and of these injuries around 30 of them are fatal. The government in their latest Fire Statistics Bulletin, report that 5,391 fires were caused by "other electrical appliances" in 2006. Of these fires, 907 caused some kind of casualty and of those, 12 were fatal.

THERMAL IMAGING

Thermal imaging is a non invasive testing process which can be carried out on live equipment. The point of this is to flag any defective equipment which may have a thermal overload. Other uses of Thermal imaging can be to detect the presence of cold spots within premises, which may point in the direction of leaks and or faulty window seals etc.

POWER QUALITY ANALYSIS

This can be a cost effective way to reduce costs of energy consumption by cutting down maintenance required. Mainly in industrial premises where motors or production lines are in use, the quality of your electrical supply can be to the detriment of your on-site equipment.
