Fixed Wire Tests
Fixed Wire Testing is the testing of the circuits contained within the fabric of your building. This includes the socket outlets, lighting circuits and various others.

The two main dangers associated with electricity are risk of shock and risk of fire. Over time, installations deteriorate, and it is in the best interest of not only yourself and employees, but your insurance company that you have an installation that is not only electrically sound but free from risk of fire.

Different premises require their wiring to be tested at different intervals which are decided by the BS 7671 wiring regulations.

Each Landlord or Property Owner has a responsibility to meet all the relevant requirements by councils and for insurance policies. In relation to these regulations failure to comply would result in claims, damage to the property or in worse case scenarios it could lead to deaths via electrocution.

Fixed Wire Tests are carried out for the following reasons  

Safety of Installation
Public Licenses
Building Control
Remortgages or Loans
Personal Selling/Buying

The test regime is very involved but basically we check the complete installation with a wide range of test and procedures, we record the results and compare them with all the requirements of BS 7671. The person procuring the test will receive a list of deviations with a priority code which gives them an indication on how urgent they need to fix or repair the problem.

The Fixed Wire Test checks the operation of any safety protection devices such as circuit breakers and current devices, to ensure they disconnect within the correct timescale required. This ensures all human safety which leads to a safer environment all round.
