Electrical installations degrade over time, it is therefore important that they are inspected and tested at regular intervals to ensure they are safe to use.  More information for duty holders including how to comply with statutory legislation can be found by clicking here. 

At Highline Electrical we offer a comprehensive service for all your inspection and testing needs.  We specialise in the industrial (including hazardous locations), commercial, domestic & agricultural sectors.

Our range of services include:

    Mains fixed wired inspection and testing
    • This is the most common service we offer and typical intervals for this type of testing are 10 years in domestic properties, 5 years for commercial, and 3 years for industrial premises.
    Routine checks
    • Every 12 months, both commercial and industrial premises should be checked for damage that has occurred to equipment over the last year.
    Entertainment and leisure licenses

    Every 12 months an establishment must have its electrical installation inspected for safety.  More information can be found here

    Hazloc inspections
    • We provide inspections to the DSEAR regulations which require equipment installed in hazardous areas be periodically inspected to ensure it is suitable for continued use in the area.
    Landlord’s safety certificates

    It is the responsibility of the landlord to ensure that the electrical installation is safe for tenants to use.  The installation must be tested every 12 months, OR upon change of occupancy.  More information can be found here.

    Emergency lighting
    • An inspection to ensure that regular checks, periodic servicing and maintenance are carried out, regardless of the size of the premises, so defects can be put right as quickly as possible.

    Fire alarm
    • We provide 6 monthly fire alarm tests to BS 5839: Part 1, section 6.  We can also provide you with bespoke log books for your installation.
    Fixed appliance testing (FAT)
    • A fixed appliance is an electrical appliance which is usually connected to the electricity supply via a fused outlet to which a flex is permanently connected, for example, cookers and hand dryers.  These tests are often overlooked, but are equally as important as PAT tests.
    Portable appliance testing (PAT)
    • Portable appliance testing is a process by which electrical appliances are routinely checked to see whether they are safe.  In order to prevent danger all electrical equipment and systems should be maintained on a regular basis.  Each and every piece of electrical equipment must be examined and tested according to the IEE code of practice recommendations.
    Thermographic surveys

    Our thermographic surveys are provided on a client need basis.  Although we specialise in electrical installations, these surveys can also be used for other purposes.  For example, overheating in motor windings, overheating bearings, hot or cold spots resulting from poor building insulation.
