With many years of commercial experience and an enviable reputation, we pride ourselves in offering the highest levels of service throughout the electrical sector for both scheduled testing and reactive work.

Whether your office, factory, shop or farm in Norwich or Norfolk needs Portable Appliance Testing (PAT testing), electrical testing, a periodic inspection or a new door entry system, we are on hand to complete it at a time to suit you and at a fixed price

PAT or Portable Appliance Testing in Norwich is a very competitive market. Our years of experience and hard work make our PAT testers the first choice for PAT testing in Norwich and Norfolk.

Portable Appliance Testing is the term used to describe the routine inspection of portable electrical appliances, to ensure they are safe for use. This applies to any electrical appliance which can, or is intended to, be moved whilst connected to an electrical supply.

PAT Testing Regulations apply to both landlords and employers, and the frequency of testing depends on the intended use of the appliances. To book an appointment or to find out more please call our friendly team.

Electrical Installation Condition Reports – also known as EICRs, Periodic or Electrical Testing, or PITs – are a statutory requirement for landlords, letting agents or employers. This is an in-depth test of the entire electrical system to check it meets current regulations. After we have completed the test we will provide a detailed report, in plain English, highlighting any areas that may require further attention.

The frequency of electrical testing varies, depending on the environment.

From our experience of periodic testing in Norwich, most landlords and employers do not always meet the required frequency of testing. Most commonly, in Norfolk, many landlords are not aware that Electrical Condition Inspection Reports (EIRCs) need to be completed every time there is a change of tenancy.

Emergency lighting must be installed and in working order in all workplaces. It may sound obvious, but it is essential to assist in the safe evacuation of the building in the event of a power failure.

The emergency lighting regulations that apply to the UK are the Fire Precautions (Workplace) Regulations 1997, which state that 'Emergency routes and exits requiring illumination must be provided with emergency lighting of adequate intensity in case lighting fails'. It is therefore the responsibility of all employers to ensure that these systems are suitably maintained and checked for safety and compliance. All emergency lighting systems should now be installed, tested and inspected in accordance with the Emergency Lighting BS 5266 standard.

It is essential that your emergency lighting system is checked every year by a qualified and experienced electrician to ensure that the internal battery in the emergency fittings will keep emergency exits illuminated should a power failure occur.

We offer emergency lighting testing, throughout Norfolk, which gives a comprehensive report outlining the details of the installation system, circuit information and inspection results, an inventory of the items tested and a list of the defects or deviations from the BS 5266 standard regulation.

Whether you are looking to deter intruders, or simply make your trip to the car from your home or office easier and safer, we can install a bespoke system to meet your needs.

Not only do we install security lights, in Norwich and the surrounding areas, but we can also service and maintain your system.

Some security lights are activated by sensors such as PIRs (passive infrared sensors), only switching on when a person approaches. Other security lights can be activated by photo cells to enable them to switch on when it gets dark – ideal for parking areas.

We can offer various types of security lighting from low-energy lights, including new LEDs (light emitting diode), halogen lamps, HID (high-intensity discharge) and sodium lamps.

A detailed, free-of-charge consultation will allow us to make the best recommendation for your needs.

Give our friendly team a call to discuss further.

Whether you are looking for a new installation, routine service or repair of an existing door entry system in Norwich then we can help.

We have experience with an array of systems and here is an outline of some of the things we can do: Audio-only handsets or Mono / Colour Handsets with speech and screen facility that residents can verify or view who the caller is at the main entrance of the block and then release the lock on the entrance doors and allow access to their visitors.

Concierge Desk—Visitors to the apartment complex may call the concierge desk for deliveries or after being unable to speak to a resident—the concierge can authorise access to the complex. The Concierge will also have the ability to communicate to all residents’ apartments and vice versa with residents’ communication to the concierge desk. The concierge desk will have a desk-mounted video monitor to view the main entrance. Access control for residents within the apartments can be provided by stand-alone systems or a PC-based system with software to manage the distribution of fobs to the residents.

If you run an office or let property then you may have an obligation to install and maintain smoke or fire detectors as part of your health and safety commitments. There are several different options available to you, but we always recommend that you look to install a hard-wired system.

There are two distinct advantages: hard-wired smoke or fire detectors are wired so that, if one detector warns of smoke or fire, the others also go off. This way, all areas of the property are warned. The other nice feature is battery back-up. The detector runs on 125-volt power until the power goes out. Then the battery kicks in and keeps right on protecting you!

So, if you are based in Norwich and need to have your smoke or fire detectors tested, or replaced, then contact us to arrange a convenient appointment.

The consumer unit or as it is commonly known, the fuse board or fuse box, is the brain of your electrical system.  It provides the protection you need from short circuits and overloading.  

Any newly installed consumer units need to comply with British Regulations and these are commonly referred to as 17th edition consumer units.  As we have a large number of NICEIC registered electricians locally we have considerable experience installing consumer units, or fuse boards if you prefer, in Norwich and Norfolk.

If you are unsure whether your property is up to current standards why not give us a call to carry out an Electrical Installation Condition Report.  We will provide a detailed condition report (in plain English) which will tell you whether any work needs to be done to bring your system up to date and in line with full regulatory compliance.
