Fixed Wire Testing

Fixed wire testing or periodic testing as it is sometimes referred to, ensures electrical circuits around a building are safe and tested according to current regulations.

Fixed wire testing/periodic testing will:

• Check RCD’s are functioning properly

• Check for electrical shock risks

• Check for fire hazards within insulation

• Should reveal any defective DIY workmanship

• A detailed test report will be issued on completion

Frequency of periodic testing will depend on the type of installation and uses.

On average periodic testing should be carried out every 5 years.
