PAT testing Ilkeston is an essential inspection and legal requirement that takes place on portable electrical equipment at all commercial premises in the UK, essentially checking the wiring of an appliance, ensuring ongoing safe use or identifying faults before they become serious fire safety issues.

We provide a full report of appliances tested along with certification, giving you evidence that your electrical equipment has been tested and is compliant.
Our PAT Testing Ilkeston will include;
- Visual inspection of the appliance, flex and plug top – Look for any visual signs of damage or overheating
- Open Each Plug Top – Inspect the fuse and connections and tighten wire connections
- Electrical tests – The appliance is put through a series of electrical tests to ensure that it is properly earthed (Earth Continuity Test, Class 1 appliance) and insulated (Insulation Resistance Test, Class 1 and 2 appliance)
- Labelling – A label is affixed to the appliance indicating whether it has passed or failed as well as additional information including the test date, re-test date and Appliance ID number assigned to it
