PAT Testing

Sentia aim to help you make your work locations & events are safer places, and keep your electrical equipment safe from shock, fire or other hazard.

We give every appliance a thorough visual check, then use the highest quality fully calibrated test equipment to perform appropriate electrical tests. Unlike some companies, we actually do things properly – we open up the plug, we complete the required visual checks, fuse checks & everything else.

We can replace faulty plugs and fuses. Not just standard 3-Pin but IEC, C-Form & other multi connectors where necessary. We’re specialists in the kind of kit you’ll take with you on an OB, gig or other event.

We will also note any other electrical safety issues observed in the course of testing to help you prevent present or future safety problems. You will then receive a full report on paper or CD ROM

Our Services include:

  • Careful visual inspection of equipment. The tops of non-moulded plugs are removed to inspect (and if necessary repair wiring).
  • Replacement of incorrect fuses and faulty 13 amp plugs.
  • Electrical test following IEE guidelines appropriate to the equipment under test.
  • Water and grease-proof labelling for all chargeable items – other labelling options also available.
  • Certificates and reports supplied on paper or on CD ROM.
  • Note taken of any potential electrical safety problems observed in the course of testing – you will be informed of any concerns so that you can deal with them as you see fit.
