Testing & Inspection

Brigstowe Electrical LTD

Professional electrical testing and inspection

Anyone who is responsible for an electrified building where others live or work has a duty to make sure that property is safe from the risk of electrical fire or electric shock injury.

This can be achieved by professional periodic electrical testing and inspection.

Here at Brigstowe Electrical Services we regard testing and inspection as a very serious and important service that we have been offering to both private and commercial clients in Wiltshire and Somerset for more than 20 years.

Over the years we’ve carried out electrical safety tests and inspections at all sorts of premises, in the education, government, retail, leisure, manufacturing sectors to name but a few, as well as private homes and HMOs (House of Multiple Occupancy).

Our fully qualified electrical engineers carry out fixed wire testing of all circuits and sockets using the latest methods, software and instrumentation.

After the completion of a test clients are supplied electronically with a full Electrical Inspection Condition Report (EICR) as well as details of the test results and any remedial work that may be required in the interests of health and safety.

The report is usually available within 24 hours of testing and is generally accompanied by photographic evidence. We’ll also give you a competitively priced quotation for any remedial work required.

The preferred choice for local residents and businesses

There are a number of reasons why Brigstowe Electrical Services is the preferred choice for local residents and businesses in the Bath and Trowbridge area for electrical safety tests and inspections.

Not only do we have an extremely competent and experienced workforce, but our rates are the best in the area. We will beat or match any like for like quotation for both testing and remedial works.

We are willing to perform tests and inspections at your convenience, even after hours if necessary, so as to prevent downtime and disruption to your business. A preliminary site survey also helps us save time and enables us to craft a bespoke testing service to suit your individual requirements.

We also have at our disposal the equipment to carry out a fast and efficient thermal imaging survey, which detects imminent electrical faults, enabling these to be corrected before more expensive repairs become necessary.

Should the results of the testing reveal any electrical remedial work or repairs that are necessary, our team will be able to carry this out expertly, quickly and efficiently with no hidden costs.

PAT (Portable Appliance Testing)

Portable appliance testing involves the inspection and testing all electrical equipment that can be moved from one socket to another.

This covers pretty much everything from a kettle to a computer. Appliances in service must comply with the IET Code of Practice in order to meet health and safety requirements.

Brigstowe Electrical Services Ltd’s PAT testing engineers will open every plug and check for the correct wiring; we will make sure that all terminals are secured and that the correct fuse is fitted, and make a full visual inspection of the lead and appliance itself. All appliances will then be tested with the most advanced calibrated test equipment available and then tagged with a suitable PASS/FAIL label or barcode.

Our testing is thorough, but fast and efficient, conscious as we are of the need to minimize disruption and downtime.

After testing you’ll receive a full report.

Emergency Lighting Testing

British Standards (BS EN 50172:2004 / BS 5266-8:2004) requires that all emergency lighting should be tested monthly, with a short functional test and inspection of all the key parts of the system.

Once a year a more comprehensive test must be carried out.

Brigstowe Electrical Services testing engineers are accredited and fully competent to carry out and officially record emergency lighting testing and inspections, and will be happy to offer you a competitively priced quotation for an ongoing testing schedule.
