By law you are required to ensure your electrical equipment is maintained in order to prevent danger. If you pride yourself in having an effective maintenance regime then PAT Testing is an excellent way of sustaining this. 

Capitol Floor & Hygiene Maintenance Ltd will provide a PAT Testing service on all or any items you wish to be tested. This involves a series of inspections that assess the safety and suitability of electrical appliances.

We will carry out these checks using a qualified engineer that will ensure your business and employees are kept safe and fully functional.

If you are unsure what needs PAT Testing, it is basically anything with a plug including:

  • PCs
  • Kettle's
  • TVs
  • Microwaves
  • Toasters etc

The process of Pat Testing consists of:

  • The appliance being disconnected from the plug socket
  • A visual inspection will be carried out
  • The appliance and its supply cord will be inspected for any signs of damage
  • Switch functionality will be checked
  • The fuse within the plug will be checked to ensure it is correctly rated for the safe connection of the appliance
  • It will be plugged into a Pat Testing machine to check the earth continuity, Insulation resistance and functional check

Once these checks are carried out, the engineer will label your equipment as to whether it has passed or failed.
