What is Fixed Wiring Inspection and Testing?

June 17, 2013

This is what it says, the inspection and testing of all your fixed wiring, this includes fuse boards (consumer unit) and all wiring from these units to your lights, sockets, roller doors, fire alarm etc

How often does this need doing?

It depends on the buildings use, but generally follows the table below.

What does it cost?

Every installation is different but if you fill in the quotation page we will get back to you the same working day

Will the test disturb my day to day operation?
