PAT testing of Industrial or Site use cable mount plugs 16amps +
110volt as well as 230v plugs, leads & appliance PAT testing
Industrial or Site using cable mount plugs 16amps + is a bit more specialised, and in practice very different to PAT testing standard 13amp plugs. The engineer needs a different toolkit, specialist testing equipment and adaptors for all the different types of cable mount plug available, and all that adds up to a lot more money to set up to do.
If you have 400v equipment we recommend you contact as a specialist 3-phase electrical company; such connectors can be wired in many different formats and so they need an industrial electrical engineer to check them fully. We can do basic checks on certain types but there are so many options you’d be better seeking an expert. We can however help with single phase, 110v or 230v connectors as well as normal ’13 amp’ plugs.
If you book us to do a job and inform us that there are 110v (yellow) and 230v (blue) single phase appliances to test then we will quote for these, but if you don’t tell us you run the risk of us not being able to do them at that appointment, as we don’t always carry these adaptors or the necessary toolkit for repairs.
If we can do them, there is a standard charge of £1.50 per appliance, + vat. If we can’t a new quote will be provided to return another day.
In general we usually quote for these as a fixed price for the job, or a time-based price.

This is what our customers think of us
PAT testing is important because it confirms whether or not an appliance is safe to use (by inspecting and testing); the engineer will usually carry out repairs if there is a fault (maintenance) and it provides you with a PAT Testing Certificate (records) – all of which help you to comply with UK workplace regulations and insurance, including..
✅ Regular electrical inspection and testing helps you ensure electrical equipment is safe
✅ A PAT engineer will assess the suitability of an appliance for the environment it is being used in to help you comply with The Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998
✅ PAT testing records can be used to demonstrate compliance with the Electricity at Work Regulations 1989
✅ Regular PAT testing helps you to comply with The Workplace (Health, Safety and Welfare) Regulations 1992
✅ Regular PAT tests in rental property help you comply with The Housing Act 2004 (England and Wales)
✅ PAT tests before the start of a tenancy help a landlord comply with The Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government’s guidance
✅ Regular PAT tests help you comply with The Electrical Equipment (Safety) Regulations 2016
✅ If the plug of an appliance doesn’t meet the Plugs and sockets etc. (Safety) Regulations 1994 we will change it for one that does.
