Commercial Electrical Installation Testing
Electrical testing is required on commercial buildings for safety and efficiency, as after a few years the usage on commercial and industrial buildings can be hard wearing on electrical installations and can cause damage and deterioration much quicker than in domestic buildings due to demand.
Systems need to be regularly checked to ensure that they continue to operate properly. Our testing engineers inspect systems to check operational effectiveness, identify weaknesses and recommend solutions before potential faults lead to breakdown.
All employers have legal obligations under the health & safety at work Act 1974 and the Electricity at work Regulations 1989 to ensure that electrical installations and equipment in places of work are safe. The Periodic Test and Inspection commonly known as “Fixed Wire Testing” is one method of ensuring your electrical distribution system is safe.
For commercial properties we provide full NICEIC Periodic Inspection Reports in strict accordance with the British Wiring Regulations BS7671. Commercial and industrial premises have to be tested by an experienced electrical engineer who has experience in this type of electrical testing, if the person conducting the test is not qualified and suitably experienced, the test report be invalid.
XS Engineering are based in Paphos, Cyprus and offer a range of Testing and Inspection programes that can be tailored to suit your facility. We are experienced engineers certified to City & Guilds 2360/2391 and IEE Wiring Regulations (17th Edition) qualifications. We operate under NAPIT and NICEIC accreditation, who verify us and our procedures. This gives you peace of mind and ensures that our work is to the highest standards.
XS Engineering will arrange a convenient schedule to carry out the testing, as all electrical circuits may need to be switched off, we will try to carry out the tests with as little disruption to your business as possible. Once the test has proven everything to be safe and compliant then you can be safe that your building is not at risk and your insurance will be valid we will provide you with a full report on completion and a quotation of any remedial works if required.
Following completion of testing, the results are presented in a high quality bound report which includes the following documentation:
- Schedule of Test Results
- BS7671 Periodic Inspection Certificate
- Detailed circuit assessment sheets
- Survey report (general site faults)
- Survey report (specific faults, locations & suggested solutions relating to distribution boards and circuits)
- Laminated "self-adhesive" circuit assessment sheets (if required)
- CAD or Visio electrical distribution drawings (if required)
- Dangerous conditions report forms
In addition to our regular inspection and testing for industrial properties we can also supplement this with Thermal Imaging Surveys for large switchgear control panels and motor drives.
