Education - Fixed Appliance Testing

F.A.T (Fixed Appliance Testing) is the testing is the testing and inspection of items that are commonly fixed and wired in to a spur. An example of these items commonly found in an education establishment are hand dryers. To test these items, we are required to carry out a process called Safe Isolation. This involves access to your Consumer Units (Fuse Boxes) to power down the appliance circuit.


Due to it's complex nature F.A.T (Fixed Appliance Testing) will take roughly 15 - 30 minutes an item but can take longer. This is due to our technicians having to power down the circuit that the appliance is on by means of safe isolation, we then test to ensure the power is off then inspect and test the appliance and the spur.


Once all this has been completed our staff will re-energise the circuit and do a functional test to complete the testing sequence.
