Welcome to Durham Pat Testing
Providing a Range of
Commercial & Residential Services
We provide a simple and cost effective PAT Testing solution, enabling all companies and organisations to comply with the Electricity at Work Regulations. We cover the entire North East and North Yorkshire, including Durham, Newcastle and Sunderland.
We specialise in Portable Appliance Testing (PAT Testing) but also offer Thermal Imaging testing, Microwave Testing and Electrical Installation Condition Reports (EICR) too.
To be confident your electrical appliances are safe, and you comply with Health and Safety standards, the simplest way is to have an inspection from a fully qualified and insured PAT Tester.
Whether it’s domestic, commercial, office or industrial equipment that needs testing you can be confident that a British Steel time served and a STROMA certified Electrician will meet your requirements.
Health and Safety regulations require that electrical appliances should have a current Pat Test Certificate ensuring they are safe to prevent harm to workers.
Often during PAT testing in an office environment there will be a server room. The client will regularly decide not to have this room fully PAT tested as they feel they cannot shut the server down for many reasons.

Very fast service. I had my items tested the following afternoon after sending an enquiry! Friendly, efficient and cheaper than all of the other companies i had contacted. I’ll definitely use and recommend Durham going forward.
