It is becoming a fundamental requirement for insurance companies, for all appliances to be PAT tested and any failure to carry out any PAT Testing on electrical appliances can affect any insurance payouts when a claim is made.
In the initial stage our professional PAT Testers will deduce whether the actual appliance in question can be certified as being safe. We will check the plug, lead and casing of the appliance for any obvious damage.
The PAT Tester will take the plug apart to check that it is using the correct fuse for the application. Checks will also be made on the connectors to see if they are both, connected securely and without any exposed wiring. The plug itself should pass BS standards and be in perfect condition without any cracks or damage.
The appliance is checked throughout for any obvious damge to the outer casing including any visible cracks or holes.
We need to check that there is a valid eaerth between the appliance and the earth on the plug.
This test checks for exposed or defective insulation to the conductors and is required on all classes of equipment.
