Portable Appliance Testing London for Commercial Organisations

Portable Appliance Testing

Within a commercial environment there’s a lot of electrical equipment which is used on a daily basis, yet often taken for granted; from computers and printers through to fax machines, telephones and vending machines. Unfortunately, if these electrical appliances aren’t well maintained they can become a serious hazard. Fortunately our team here at First Strike Electrical can help prevent this from happening by providing a reliable and professional portable appliance testing London service.

Portable appliance testing, also known as PAT testing, is mandatory for all commercial premises and it is up to the owner of the business to ensure that it is carried out on an annual basis. After all, electrical appliances from kettles to telephones and from IT support London equipment through to radios can become faulty through general wear and tear, but our team of engineers are qualified and highly skilled to spot any faults during a PAT test.

Despite misconceptions, the service isn’t as simple as plugging the appliance in and testing it, instead it is more complex as it involves checking for problems concerning the electrical connections, which takes into account voltage, current and resistance. Fortunately our team have the experience, skillset and equipment necessary to carry out a reliable and efficient test, whilst working to cause your business as little disruption as possible.

Once each electrical appliance within your property has been tested, we’ll place a small sticker which highlights whether the appliance has passed, failed or was only visually inspected. These stickers will also hold information regarding the date of the PAT test, when the next one is due and our contact details.

Portable appliance testing London isn’t something that you should put off, so if your company’s computers haven’t been tested within the last year or more, or if you want peace of mind that all your electrical appliances are safe to use, contact us today on one of the numbers on our website.

"I had severe water damage in my kitchen and the whole room needed to be refurbished from scratch. I did most of the work myself but required someone to come in and put in all of the electrics, so I called First Strike. They came in and quoted me a great price for the work and then carried it all out in a fast and high quality manner. Thank you so much for great service!"
