  • 1.A rented domestic property will require a PIR if a change of tenancy has taken place. It is then the landlord’s responsibility to action a periodic inspection report to be sure the wiring is in a safe condition for insurance purposes.
  • 2.Public buildings and government institutions similarly require to be checked at 5 year periods, or 12 months if a public entertainments license is required. Areas of public entertainment can cover a range of issues such as:

    Radio Detection Specialist – for cable tracing

    Cable tracing within a structure of a building, or below ground can be very difficult to predict in terms of time. Using radio detection technology is a proven way of quickly tracing and locating a circuit or cable within the existing wiring structure of a building or underground.

    Cables traced in readiness for ground works or building projects


    Thermal Scanning

    Thermal scanning of electrical systems and wiring structures to detect the presence of overheating that could cause a fire. This is a excellent predictive maintenance service. This can be carried out with a periodic electrical inspection report (PIR) for insurance purposes or as a separate check. The image below shows a cable that is becoming overheated caused by overloading.
