DRA PAT Testing provide PAT Testing for hair and beauty salons, shops etc. to help their owners comply with health and safety regulations, helping to keep staff and customers safe.
Hair salons, shops, cafe’s etc. all have a heightened risk as there is a chance water is going to come into contact with electrical equipment so you need to make sure that equipment maintains safe standards; for example, hairdryers and wet-hands, curlers and wet hair, toasters getting too close to the sink.
Water, being a conductor of electricity, poses a significant risk.
A defective appliance that comes into contact with water, presents a real risk of giving a user an electric shock.
So ensuring appliances maintain safe standards is essential.
Getting periodic portable appliance testing carried out is the recommended method for ensuring equipment is maintained; we’ll carry out any necessary repairs and recommend ways to improve safety measures.
Contact us to discuss your PAT testing needs or to arrange to have your electrical equipment tested.
Wherever you are located in the North East we will come to you to test your appliances

We always use DRA Electricals for our office. I would highly recommend these guys to any business. Very professional service and friendly! We had our PAT Testing done.
We are very impressed with your service, everything very professional and as you promised. As a small business we find it hard to find reliable companies to deal with, it makes a refreshing change to come across a company with similar ideals to us – a fair job at a fair price with pleasant employees and proper paperwork!
These guys were recommended to us and they came in recently to do the PAT Testing. The service was first class and report very professionally presented in an easy to understand format. It is rare I give 5 stars in a review however in this case it is thoroughly deserved and would recommend DRA PAT Testing Limited to any organisation
Have used DRA PAT Testing for a number of years now. Hassle free, brilliant service. Provides reminders as to when your testing is due which is helpful. Has also informed me in the past that some items aren’t annually tested – saving me money rather than just going ahead and doing it. Excellent friendly service
Have used Richard and DRA for a number of years now, every time giving first class service and efficiency. He is punctual with timing, very flexible with any needs or requirements and won’t try to add any extras or unnecessary work to what is required. I have no hesitation in recommending him and will be using his services in the future.
DRA provided an efficient and professional service for our PAT testing. They managed to work around everyone in the office and didn’t cause any inconvenience. We definately have no hesitation of using their services on an ongoing basis

✅ Experienced, PATTA registered engineers
We are an experienced company, established in 2009. All employees are moulded into our way of doing things, which is recognised as a high standard in the industry
✅ Free replacement plugs and fuses
Some companies charge to replace defective plugs and fuses, and as they seem to replace a lot you would ask were all those changes necessary? Which is why we don’t charge to replace them, so you know we only do genuine replacements. We also carry out remedial repairs free.
✅ Free advice on retest periods
PAT testing frequency is a big discussion point. How often PAT testing should be done caused a lot of confusion but at the end of the day it is determined by a risk assessment or HSE guidance.
✅ PAT Test Certificates including test readings
Every client receives a Certificate pdf document with itemised appliances for each site location and test results, guidance on failures and retest periods
✅ Cable management (tidying) included
Some companies charge extra to tidy cables under desks, we feel that if we leave you with a tidier working environment not only will you appreciate it but it will make our job a lot easier next time. Cables easily get messed up as more and more get added and IT teams don’t have the time to tidy, so we will do it for you
✅ Old pass labels removed
We hate seeing old messy labels left on appliances, so we aim to remove these before applying our own. Ours are clean, printed professional with unique ID numbers
