What are fixed wire tests and EICR reports?
Fixed wire tests and EICR reports are there to protect you and your home. We are experts in all things electrical and take great pride in the electrical testing services we offer.
Our aim is to ensure properties and businesses are kept safe from electrical faults, through electrical inspection testing. We advise, support and service residential and corporate clients throughout London and the South East, keeping properties compliant with the current electrical safety standards in the UK.
What types of fixed electrical testing services are there?
As experts in fixed electrical testing services, we ensure peace of mind and 100% satisfaction every time. All our services are carried out by fully-qualified engineers that have undertaken recognised industry-standard training and specialise in the fixed electrical testing field.
Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR)
An Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR) covers the entire electrical system in a building, from distribution boards to cables, light fixtures, plug sockets and switches. The report will reveal the state of these elements to help ensure your property is safe.
We can advise on your compliance obligations and can even arrange reminders when your Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR) inspection is due.
Fixed Wire Testing
As well as Electrical Installation Condition Reports (EICR), we also offers Fixed Wire Testing. This is a full test of all the electrics and electrical systems within a building, including distribution boards, mains panels and sockets.
House Electrical Tests
If you’re looking to buy or sell a home, or you want to ensure your current property is safe, you can hire us to carry out house electrical tests. Our home buyer services include either a standard Domestic Electrical Installation Condition Report or an Enhanced Home Buyers Electrical Report, which involves examination of all sockets, switches and fittings in your home.
Emergency Lighting Testing
If you own or manage a property with fire escape signage, then you’ll need to book regular emergency lighting testing. This is a crucial aspect of building maintenance and will ensure your colleagues or tenants can quickly and safely exit the property in the event of a fire.
PAT Testing (Fixed Appliance Testing)
PAT Testing, or fixed appliance testing, covers all the electrical equipment in a building. If you are a business owner or landlord, you are responsible for maintaining the safety of the appliances in use by other people. Our PAT Testing service will highlight which electrical appliances are in safe working condition, and which are not.
Why is fixed electrical testing important?
You might be wondering why fixed electrical testing is important. Well, did you know that more than half of household fires are caused by an electrical fault, due to a lack of electrical inspection and installation testing? Ensuring well-maintained electrics through an electrical condition report is key.
Fixed electrical testing should be conducted at regular intervals, but new Government regulations, that came into force on 1st June 2020, make other services essential. For example, 5 year electrical testing fixed wire tests are now mandatory for landlords and housing associations.
