Fixed Wire Testing is the visual inspection and electrical testing of electrical installations and systems to ensure your building is safe, compliant and operating according to IEE Wiring Regulations (BS 7671). Regular inspection is an essential part of any maintenance programme.
The frequency of testing depends of the nature of your organisation. Factors include:
The type of installation
How often it is used
Any external influences
Environment to which the installation is exposed
On completion we issue an Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR). This comprehensive report will detail the status of your installation along with any remedial work required.
Thermal imaging is one of the most valuable diagnostic tools for preventative maintenance. A thermographic survey is one of the simplest and most accurate methods to monitor and predict system failure.
What does thermal imaging involve?
A non-contact and non-destructive test
Special camera looks only for heat by way of infra-red (IR) energy waves
Detects excess heat being released by an electrical system
Detects anomalies often invisible to the naked eye
Detects electrical and mechanical issues
Surveys can be performed covering entire sites, or confined to smaller suspect areas. Ideally they will be included on annual planned maintenance programmes (PPMs)
Typically they are performed during normal operating conditions, causing minimal disruption.
On completion you will receive a report detailing the condition of your electrical installation and any defects requiring attention.
Portable Appliance Testing (PAT) is the trusted way to ensure that you meet your organisation’s electrical health and safety responsibilities and to know that your buildings, occupants and assets are safe. It may also be a requirement of your insurance policy.
We deliver PAT testing in line with recommended frequency guidelines to proactively detect any potential safety issues.
What does PAT testing involve?
All items to be tested must be unplugged
PAT process can be quite disruptive to your ongoing operations
We can accommodate your working patterns
We providing services during and outside business hours
All moveable electrical appliances are visually checked and electrically tested
Each item is given a pass or fail label with a unique asset ID number
When the tests are complete we will provide a PAT report, listing each item that has been tested, its location, and the result of each test.
Lightning protection, or more specifically lightning surge protection and earthing systems, prevent loss of life and prevent damage and destruction of property and assets. We offer a comprehensive lightning protection testing and certification service.
Regular maintenance of your lightning protection installation will ensure that when your system is called upon to protect you it is capable of doing so.
We recommend installations inspection and testing every 11 months
This takes account of all seasonal variations in resistance or other characteristics of the system
All lightning conductors, surge protection and earthing systems are rigorously tested
Further to all testing a test certificate is issued
We also provide a comprehensive report on the condition of the system
Repairs or upgrades are clearly identified with recommendations to restore it to a compliant condition
All of our Lightning Protection services are delivered in compliance with BS 6651 / BS EN 63205 and IS EN 62305 and all of its component parts.
The Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations, often abbreviated to PUWER, place duties on people and companies who own, operate or have control over work equipment. PUWER also places responsibilities on companies whose employees use work equipment, whether owned by them or not. The regulations deal with the work equipment and machinery used in workplaces and aims to keep people safe wherever equipment and machinery is used at work.
Where the regulations apply to you, the ROL Group team can inspect your equipment with a focus on the safety critical components that could affect the capability of the equipment being operating in a safe manner. We measure the design and installation of your equipment, highlight any issues where identified, and subsequently implement any necessary safety upgrades.
