PAT Testing services for Bands and Musicians

For Bands and Musicians testing your electrical equipment might not seem important. However, the Health and Safety executive states that around 25% of all electrical accidents happen due to a fault with a portable appliance.

Most venues and events now require all electrical equipment to be tested before they’ll allow you to perform. We have many examples of performers not being able to perform due to equipment not being tested. As a performer electrical testing of your equipment at regular periods ensures you can perform. But more importantly that there isn’t an accident due to defects.

The cheapest and quickest way to electrically test your equipment is to use a PAT Testing service. This test can be carried out in less than a hour, to give you total peace of mind.

PAT Testing for Bands and Musicians is a cheap and quick way to ensure you and the general public are safe around electrical appliances. It is recommended that musicians and entertainers have all their electrical equipment regularly tested before performing in a public place. Depending on usage this could be every 3 months or up to 2 years. Our PAT testing team can test amplifiers to keyboards, lighting rigs and DJ decks to give you total peace of mind.

What is PAT Testing

PAT Testing for Bands and Musicians

PAT Testing is the term used to describe the process of testing portable electrical appliances.Most electrical appliances require a combined formal visual test and inspection every 12 months but that can vary depending on usage.

PAT Testing should only be carried out by a competent tester. Sometimes just by a visual inspection obvious defects can be identify, however a formal PAT Test will find defects which are not visual. This will also give you the correct certificates and labeling to ensure you are fully compliant.
