Scheduled Maintenance

Schedule a maintenance review for peace of mind

The consequences of electrical system failure, and the costs associated, are often not taken into account on the impact of the business until it is too late. Our qualified specialists can schedule maintenance of your electrical systems — vital for safety and insurance purposes.

Thermographic electrical survey
The insurance industry has stated that electrical fires represent approx 40% of fire loss insurance costs in industry and approx 20% of large scale fire incidents. Electrical Fires are commonly caused by loose connections, weakening of isolations, obstructed cooling and mechanical damage.

On commencement or renewal of your insurance policy, it is becoming more common for fire insurance providers to ask for evidence that you undertook a Thermographic Survey of your electrical equipment. Some insurance companies offer discount if you set up a regular surveying program.

Thermal imaging is the most efficient method for carrying out an electrical safety inspection. Fenlon Electrical Services, using this method, offers a fast and cost-effective way to locate faults, with no disruption to the running of your business. The survey is conducted whilst your equipment is working and under load; any problems will be quickly located allowing you time to plan maintenance at a time that suits your business.

By completing the inspection it can be clearly seen if there are any loose connections or overloaded components in the distribution board or machine. The fault observed may be fixed quickly and economically, however if the fault is not dealt with it may cost the business a lot of money in downtime, loss in production, wages injury claims and increased insurance premiums.

Portable Appliance Testing
A portable appliance is anything that plugs into the electrical supply via a socket. Portable Appliance Inspection and Testing (or P.A.T. Testing) is a important part of any Health & Safety Policy.

To minimise the risk of a fire or the risk of an electric shock to either an employee or member of the public it is important to have these appliances safety-tested to promote a safe working environment. It is necessary for employers to undertake this low-cost procedure annually for everybody's safety (including the public) and for peace of mind.

Presently, EU laws, insurance companies, HAS and the IEEE regulations cover this matter. Many insurance companies are not re-insuring clients unless documented proof is available that P.A.T. Testing has taken place.

Portable electrical appliances in public venues — including pubs, clubs, hotels, leisure facilities, schools and government buildings — should be tested at least once a year. (The frequency of testing is related to each specific area).

The test includes a visual inspection of mains cables, fuses etc and an insulation and full safety test using a dedicated P.A. Testing machine.

Each P.A.T. also includes:
  • A visual inspection
  • Earth leakage test
  • Fuse continuity test
  • Functional test
  • Earth bond test
  • Insulation test
  • Flash test
  • Documentation
When an appliance passes the P.A.T., a safety certificate is issued and attached to the appliance indicating compliance. The re-test date is attached and a report is issued for the tested appliance. After completion of P.A.T. testing you will receive a full report of portable appliances tested, including the following:
  • A Company Register of Portable Appliance Testing. This will provide information on each appliance in each department; it will also help to keep track of all portable appliances in your company.
  • Each appliance that passes inspection & testing will receive a GREEN safety sticker, demonstrating to all visitors your serious obligation to Health & Safety issues. In the case of failure a RED sticker is issued.
