Do A PAT Test!

The PAT test is an important verification tool. The whole process is known as “in-service inspection and testing of electrical equipment.” This routine check of all electrical appliances ensures that all your electrical installations meet the strictest safety requirements!

Inverteck Ltd are able to offer a comprehensive range of testing and inspection solutions from domestic premises to all commercial and industrial premises.

The PAT test complies with all legal requirements and may even qualify you for a discount on your insurance premiums, as it proves how seriously you take safety issues. In the event of any damages claims, your PAT certificate proves that your electrical installations have been tested and certified.

PAT testing includes:

  • visual inspections
  • earth-bond tests
  • insulation-resistance tests
  • flash testing
  • load tests
  • earth-leakage test
  • functional checks

Where defects are found, we will carry out repairs (free of charge) where possible. Such repairs could be;

  • Replace a damaged plug
  • Fit the correct fuse (where an incorrectly rated fuse is found)
  • Repair or replace damaged flexible cords

Where defects are found which cannot be repaired, we will immediately make you aware of such defective items.

Following Portable Appliance Testing, a full report will be issued detailing all the items tested.

Non-compliance with PAT standards can lead to severe punishments for corporations and landlords, ranging from fines to imprisonment. We therefore recommend that all relevant portable appliances are tested regularly.

We look forward to discussing PAT testing with you in more detail!
