A. Bareham, Musician Loaded

""ACTest were very prompt and efficient at managing to solve the seemingly unpredictable tripping of one of my circuits.  The electricians were very clear in explaining the testing process, allowing me to undersand what was wrong, and why.  Not only was the required worked completed within the hour, but additional checks were made to ensure there were no other gremlins in the system.  We can now rest easy knowing that our electrics are safe.  Thanks again."

Totally reliable and efficient, we would recommend ACtest as works with the staff to make the job unobtrusive.  The school has used them for at least four years, always with confidence that the job at hand will be completed in an amiable and professional manner.

"Just a quick email to say thanks for doing our PAT inspection and accommodating us at short notice!  Most appreciated.  As ever, a friendly, reliable and professional service. Will recommend you to any other bands (or anyone, for that matter!) needing PAT testing. Thanks, again, to ACtest and see you next year."

Stewart Coleman - Blow Up

"Fujifilm UK Ltd have a number of buildings under different management control and there are over 3,000 portable appliances including the IT element. When organising the Portable Appliance Test each year, it is important to me that the task is carried out quickly and professionally, with as little disruption to staff working as possible. Security is also an important consideration, especially if out of hours work is carried out. In these days of holding cost down, the cost of PAT testing also has to be considered. Fujifilm have used ACtest for 4 years and I feel we benefit from the personal service we get from them. The team who attend are usually the same each year which, on a big site helps them know and find where all the items to test are. Where required, areas are covered out of hours so that disruption to staff is minimal. Any item failing is either repaired by the engineer immediately, or if this is not possible it is taken out of service and brought to my attention. Advice is also give on any other unsafe conditions that may be noted. They report to me each day to inform me of what they have completed and of any problems. The work is not always easy as most appliances are connected under and between desks, cupboards etc. I have found that the staff of ACtest can be trusted in all our secure areas and they require minimal supervision. The reports on the test results are provided in a timely manner in either electronic or paper form. Any arrangements of when the test is to be carried out have always been kept and invoices are always accurate and at the competitive price which has been previously agreed.
On behalf of Fujifilm UK Ltd I have no hesitation in recommending ACtest Ltd."

Robert Cox, Fujifilm UK Ltd. Health and Safety Advisor and Facilities Controller.

"I thank you for the excellent and thorough manner in which the testing was provided."

Ian Sher - Pondental Dental Surgery

It won't happen to you, will it?

Electrical systems and appliances degrade due to many factors - time, general use and physical damage.

Electricity can be dangerous and sometimes even fatal if your electrical systems are not installed and maintained correctly.
