Duration of office appliance PAT tests

A question we get asked a lot, understandably, is how long it takes to do PAT tests in an office; well it’s difficult to say how long exactly but as a general estimate we’d expect to take around 10 minutes to do one desk if it’s got one computer, one monitor, the usual leads and maybe another one or two devices. If there are extra monitors it may take a few more minutes. 

If desks are connected and share socket blocks, then all the desks need shutting down at the same time; if they are this makes our job a lot easier and the process quicker, so we’d expect to test a 4 desk pod in around 30 minutes. 

If you use that as a general estimator that should help. 

As a rough margin, we’d expect to test around 100 items in about 3 hours, or 200 in 6 hours so depending on what you have, lets estimate 100 items would be 25 standard computers, or maybe 20 computers and 20 general office appliances.
