We believe that electrical inspection and testing of business premises should only be carried out by experienced electricians. Knowledge of different types of installations and a broad experience of electrical testing are essential to producing reports with correctly coded items. The use of experienced electricians helps to avoid inappropriate coding on a report.
Testing is carried out using calibrated testing equipment and will check the integrity of the cables within the installation, identify any deterioration or defects and confirm the effectiveness of the earthing system and other methods of protection. Our electricians will visually inspect the wiring installation, electrical containment systems and accessories for any defect, signs of heat damage or other deterioration.
The final report includes a schedule of items inspected, a comprehensive record of the electrical circuits found within the installation and the measured test results listed against them.
