How We PAT Test

At PatPals we only employ experienced, professional City & Guilds qualified engineers who meet our rigorous standards, to give you the best possible service.

PAT Testing is not simply a case of sticking a label to a plug. Our PAT Testing is performed to the highest industry standards, using the most sophisticated equipment available.

While some competitors aim to maximise profits by reducing standards, we will never compromise on our quality as PAT testing is all about safety.

We want you, your employees and your guests to be safe, and your company to comply with the relevant legislation. See Why PAT Test
