PAT Testing Billingham
Professional PAT Testing Services from S&S Electrics
At S&S Electrics, we offer PAT testing services to clients throughout Billingham and the surrounding areas within the North East. Our PAT test services have been carried out for many years; this has allowed us to hone and develop the key skills needed to carry out PAT tests to the highest possible standard. If correctly carried out, PAT testing will reduce and almost eliminate the risk of electrocution or fire. We understand that nothing is 100% guaranteed but compared with doing nothing and having absolutely no PAT tests completed in your property, it is fantastic! If you think about it a business stands to lose a lot if affected by fire. It is easy enough to give our team a call and give your appliances a regular PAT test! With electrical accidents approximately 20 times more likely to kill the victim than another type of accident, businesses can’t really afford to avoid PAT testing.
What is PAT Testing?
PAT Testing is more commonly known as Portable Appliance Testing and is used to comply with the multiple healths and safety legislations that have been put in place; it is a vital part of any Health & Safety policy. PAT testing is done using a series of specialised testing procedures on your portable appliances.
What Does PAT Testing Consist Of?
The PAT testing services that S&S Electrical offer throughout Billingham consist of a few steps. The steps that are involved in our PAT testing services include:
A visual inspection, checking for the following:
- Damaged plugs and equipment, including overheating, burn marks or discolouration
- Damaged flexes
- Correctly rated fuse
- Correctly wired plugs
We then carry out a series of tests, which may include:
- Insulation resistance
- Earth continuity testing
- Polarity tests
- Earth leakage tests
How Often Should Equipment be PAT Tested?
We have been carrying out PAT tests in Billingham for many years now, this has allowed us to grow and extend our knowledge of the PAT testing industry tenfold. This has allowed us to be able to outline a few key factors relating to PAT testing, such as how often equipment should be PAT tested.
How regularly you have your appliances PAT tested depends on the risk assessment and maintenance schedule of your Billingham based business. If your business doesn’t have these documents for PAT testing, please let us know and we are more than happy to help you with this.

“We used S & S Electrics to rewire our office when the fuse box kept blowing. They came when they said they would and completed all work in good time at a reasonable price. I would highly recommend this company!”
