Our PAT testing business tests electrical appliances depending on the class of the appliance. There are two types of classes our PAT testing business inspects; these are Class I or Class II.
Before electrical PAT testing is completed, the engineer of our PAT testing business will look at the rating plate of the appliance to identify its class, watt and voltage. While PAT testing if there is no rating plate found on the appliance, the appliance will be disposed of.
An engineer from out PAT testing business will identify the class of an appliance through a symbol on the rating plate. A Class II appliance will have a double box symbol, whereas a Class I appliance will not display any symbol. It is important for this to be checked before electrical PAT testing.
Class I appliances tend to have large areas of exposed metal for example an electrical fire or a PC. An electrical PAT test for any Class I appliance with exposed metal is highly important because the metal is connected to the earth pin of the mains plug. Class II appliances have two layers of insulation to prevent electric shocks. Class II appliances are items such as hand held drills or hairdryers. Our PAT testing business ensures that both of these Classes are safe to use. Some appliances are more prone to danger than others and will require an electrical PAT test more frequently than others.
The standard categories for an electrical PAT test which we assess in our PAT testing business are:
When having an electrical PAT test these categories determine how dangerous the appliance can be. Stationary appliances will not be moved, which means that the cable is less likely to be damaged and pose danger. However, hand-held equipment is likely to be damaged because it is more likely to be dropped or the cable could be constantly rubbed against something, causing it to fail PAT testing.
Our PAT testing business service ensures that your business is following all mandatory health and safety regulations and the code of practice issued by IEE.
Our PAT testing business offers services to every type of business and our aim is to promote safe working environments all over London. Our PAT testing business engineer will at first inspect all electrical appliances, including all visual inspections.
The next procedure in our PAT testing business service is to test all of the electrical appliances individually. We will use a small machine which will tell us whether your appliance has passed or failed the test. A label will be applied on each appliance signifying whether it has passed or failed.
Once we have finished all of your portable appliance tests, an employee of our PAT testing business will then issue you with the appropriate documentation. This will include a written report and a test certificate. The written report will give details of the inspection and state which appliances passed and failed.
Our PAT testing business offers services to every type of business and the prices vary depending on the number of electrical appliances in the premises and the accessibility to these appliances.
