FIXED WIRE TESTING
Latis & Stuart are members of the exclusive electrical contractor’s association (ECA). To remain members we are regularly audited throughout the whole spectrum of our operations.
Electrical Installation Testing (EIT) involves testing the electrical services and systems that conduct electricity around a building. It covers all the hard wiring in a building such as lighting, air conditioning or fixed plant, whether that building is commercial, industrial or residential.
The Institute of Electrical Engineers (IEE) recommended maximum periods between inspections are:
• Factories – 3 years
• Commercial buildings – 5 years
• Residential – 10 years
All work is carried out and certified to NICEIC standards.
We always quote a price per circuit, therefore you only pay for what is tested, not a generic quote based on building size. We understand all sites vastly differ electrically based on their environment within.
When fixed wire electrical safety testing is complete, any ‘damage, deterioration, defects and dangerous conditions within installation’ will be reported. Latis & Stuart is unique, in that we offer our customers a remedial solution to repair any defects found during the test and inspection process. Our electrical installations division will prepare a no obligation quotation to repair any deviations from BS7671 and provide the required certification in each case.
Any problems we discover fall into four codes:
• Code 1- requires urgent attention
• Code 2- potentially dangerous and should be given urgent attention
• Code 3- improvement recommended
Any fault reported as code 1 or 2 must be remedied.
LATIS & STUART CAN:
• Installing correct colour ID to circuits
• Replacing missing screws from switches/sockets
• Replace/fix damaged/loose/corroded wiring
• Improve access to equipment where necessary
