PAT Testing protects users from electric shock and equipment malfunction. Regular testing of appliances ensures you know if an item is safe to use or remains fit for purpose.

Improving your lighting

You may also wish to revamp the lighting within your office and commercial space. The aesthetic of commercial buildings and offices impacts the options of staff and customers alike. Furthermore, many businesses still using older incandescent or fluorescent lighting have been gradually phasing these out in favour of LED bulbs and units. LEDs can produce the same luminescence while using less energy and producing less heat while in use. This has the added benefit of reducing energy costs as well as lowering your property’s carbon footprint.

Expanding capacity

Installing additional power outlets has the added benefit of safety as well as expanding your property’s capacity for electronics. Some businesses in an attempt to expand the number of outlets they have use extension leads. Though not a problem itself, when the extension lead is filled with plugs, in some cases, people add another extension lead onto the existing one, which creates a high risk of overloading. Overloading could result in a blown fuse or fire in some cases. Installing additional outlets removes this risk and future-proofs your building should you procure addental appliances and peripherals.

Why Flicker Testing is so Important

All commercial property owners have a series of obligations to meet. One of which is ensuring the property’s emergency lighting functions correctly. One way of doing this is carrying out ‘flicker testing’. But what exactly is a flicker test? Let’s shed some light on that for you.…if you will pardon the pun!

What is a flicker test?

Flicker testing involves turning off all the lights in the property via a test key switch and walking around the property while recording any faults identified during the test. Testing times can vary depending on the size of the property and should be conducted monthly and a three hour ‘drain down’ of the lights should be carried out annually.

Work to resolve faults that affect the efficiency of the Emergency lighting should be carried out as a matter of urgency. This is to ensure the safety of those present within the property in the event of a power failure and the building being plunged into darkness.

Why is a flicker test so important?

Businesses and other public spaces are required by law to ensure emergency lighting is present and functioning within a building. This is so the building can be evacuated safely and efficiently should there be a severe power cut or fire. Ultimately, having regular tests conducted by a trained electrical engineer provides a business with peace of mind, knowing that if something unexpected occurred, the emergency lighting will function as intended and enable personnel to evacuate safely.
