PAT testing (Portable Appliance Testing) is the best method for checking electrical equipment with a plug is safe to continue using, and helps you to comply with workplace regulations.
DRA PAT Testing’s expert engineers have plenty of museum PAT testing experience, having helped maintain National Trust properties’ electrical equipment for many years, as well as at other museums across the United Kingdom
We specialise in PAT testing electrical equipment, so we can help you maintain safe electrics in your museum! Most Museum equipment is the same type as found in any other workplace, although there are some specialist appliances so you can be assured we have come across most before and have the experience and adaptors to test them. Having PAT tested Cragside House for the National Trust for many years we have come across most types of equipment and are well versed in working carefully to not damage priceless artefacts.
If we need to work out of hours so as not to disturb your visitors appointments are available.
We provide an efficient, reliable and cost-effective service with minimal disruption by experienced engineers whose work gives you peace of mind that your equipment is safe to continue using.
As an experienced PAT testing company we can operate in all environments, so even if your business is not exclusively museum we can still help you.

If you have server systems we can work with you to test them out of hours, once in a five year spell (they don’t need doing every year either), and can check them visually or even with thermal imagery at regular intervals. Some companies say they will do a ‘full visual inspection’ on your server but if they can’t unplug it they can’t fully inspect it.
Regular PAT testing can help you reduce insurance premiums, as it equates to a risk assessment of your electrical equipment, helping to determine the safety levels in your business, and the need for more or less frequent inspections.
On completion of the job you will receive a fully itemised PAT Testing Certificate Report with guidance on what we have done and ways in which you could improve your office appliance safety.
Included in the price is remedial repairs to the existing plug and cable, replacement plugs and fuses, guidance on retests, timely reminders and your fully itemised PAT Testing Certificate Report sent within 24 hours. On top of that we can also do your electrical installation inspection too (EICR).
