In: Portable Appliance Testing

There are many portable appliance testing (PAT) companies, but not all provide the quality service that we do at Plumbing Professionals Ltd.

Portable appliance testing (PAT) companies test electrical appliances depending on the class of the appliance. There are two types of classes our portable appliance testing (PAT) companies inspect; these are Class I or Class II.

Before portable appliance testing (PAT) is completed, the companies your electrical PAT test is carried out from will assess the rating plate of the appliance to identify its class, watt and voltage. When portable appliance testing (PAT) if there is no rating plate found on the appliance, the appliance will be disposed of.

An engineer from our portable appliance testing (PAT) companies will identify the class of an appliance through a symbol on the rating plate. A Class II appliance will have a double box symbol, whereas a Class I appliance will not display any symbol. It is important for this to be checked before portable appliance testing (PAT).

Class I appliances tend to have large areas of exposed metal, for example, an electrical fire or a PC. Electrical portable appliance testing (PAT) for any Class I appliance with exposed metal is highly important because the metal is connected to the earth pin of the mains plug. Class II appliances have two layers of insulation to protect anyone using it from electric shock. Class II appliances are items such as hand held drills or hairdryers. Our PAT testing business ensures that both of these Classes are safe to use. Some appliances are more prone to danger than others and will require an electrical PAT test more frequently than others.

The standard categories for an electrical PAT test which we assess in our PAT testing business are:

• Stationary
• Moveable
• Portable
• Hand-held

When having a portable appliance test (PAT) the categories determine how dangerous the appliance can be. Stationary appliances will not be moved, which means that the cable is less likely to be damaged and pose danger. However, hand-held equipment is likely to be damaged because it is more likely to be dropped or the cable could be constantly rubbed against something, causing it to fail PAT testing.

Our portable appliance testing (PAT) companies ensure that your business is following all mandatory health and safety regulations and the code of practice issued by IEE.
