Electrical and PAT Testing in Torbay

We offer a complete range of electrical testing for any type of building including domestic, commercial and industrial.

PAT Testing

PAT Testing or portable appliance testing is normally required by insurance companies in commercial and industrial settings. It can mean testing anything from electric tools, kettles, table lamps etc. It is basically anything that has a plug top on it. Because a lot of appliances are portable and are quite often plugged in and out on a regular basis this can cause strain to the plug top, the lead and the appliance itself.

PAT testing an item will ensure the appliance is mechanically fault free and will also check that there is earth continuity throughout the appliance. We also carry out a visual check to the appliance including a fuse check as it is surprising how many people are not aware of the damage that can be caused by using the incorrect size fuse.

Finish Electrical only use the latest PAT test equipment which enables us to give precise test readings where necessary. Using the latest equipment also means we can test some of the more sensitive electronic appliances like TVs and microwaves without causing damage to the appliance. PAT test certificates are issued once testing is complete which will be compliant with all insurance companies. We can carry out PAT testing for as little as £1.25 plus VAT per item depending on the quantity. Please contact us for more details.

Installation Testing

Testing can be required for a number of reasons, the main one being Electrical Installation Condition Reports (EICR). This type of testing will help determine the condition of an electrical installation and should be done on a periodic basis.

Another common reason for testing an installation would be for fault diagnosis. We can carry out various types of testing on a circuit to ensure that no faults go undetected. It is surprising how many installations have faults that people are unaware of.

All of our Electricians have a vast understanding of electrical installations in all settings including domestic, commercial and industrial which makes testing much quicker and simpler. We carry out testing for many local companies including holiday parks, night clubs, pubs, shops, hotels and rented domestic properties. Because of our extensive back ground of electrical installations and testing we can provide this service very efficiently causing minimal disruption.
