Fixed Wiring Electrical Inspection

It’s crucial to have your fixed electrical wiring system regularly inspected and tested whether it is in your office, factory, warehouse, or at your home. Over time electrical installations suffer from wear and tear that can cause unseen faults that go undiscovered and lead to further problems. We recommend electrical wiring systems are checked between 5 and 10 years to ensure the system is fit for continued use.

However, over several years, the electrical wiring system is often altered and added to, leading to further demands on the fixed wiring system that were not part of the original design. These additions to the system, coupled with the wear, tear and age of the initial cabling, can cause premature ageing of the installed system.

Faults that can occur within the electrical wiring system can be many and varied, including:

  • Poor or loose connections.
  • Degrading of electrical cable insulation.
  • Arcing between connections.
  • Overloaded parts of the cable network.
  • Missing or broken covers.
