We tailor all installations to the specific requirements of the client and the physical layout of the business premises.
The process for each audio installation is as follows:
To get an understanding of the audio installation project, we carry out a site survey to gauge the client’s requirements and to make recommendations regarding speaker numbers and placement.
Based on the project budget, we will recommend and source suitable system components, ensuring it is compatible with any existing systems such as fire alarms and PA systems.
Cable Installation (1st Fix)
Cabling is installed paying special attention to system performance, speaker placement and general optics of the cable runs. Existing cabling will be utilised if it is compatible with the new system.
Speaker and Amplifier Installation (2nd Fix)
Speakers, amplifier and any additional components are installed at the agreed locations and connected to the cabling to complete the system installation.
Portable Appliance Testing (PAT)
To ensure compliance with health and safety regulations we undertake PAT Testing on all relevant system components and issue the necessary certification.
See below for further details regarding PAT Testing
Testing and Commissioning
Once the installation is complete, we fully test it to ensure it is performing optimally and is operating correctly with other associated systems present such as fire alarms and PA systems.
We provide a familiarisation demonstration to the client showing the correct way to operate the system and highlight best practices to take care of it.
Servicing And Repairs
To prevent problems occurring and to ensure that your system is working as effectively as possible, we carry out preventative maintenance servicing.
A standard service involves a full clean of all components, a visual inspection and a PAT test to ensure the system is electrically sound. We will also check the sound quality of the system and offer any necessary advice and guidance.
Faults & Repairs
Should you find a problem with your audio system we are on hand to diagnose and fix the issue including carrying out any repairs that are required.
If your business uses any appliance with a plug on, you may benefit from this safety check to ensure you comply with health and safety regulations.
What is PAT Testing?
PAT testing is a process by which electrical appliances are checked for safety.
- A visual inspection of the equipment and any flexible cables to ensure they are in good condition
- Verification of earthing continuity (where required)
- A test of the soundness of insulation between the current carrying parts and any exposed metal that may be touched.
Purpose Of PAT Testing
Health and safety regulations require that electrical appliances are safe and maintained to prevent harm to employees and customers.
Many equipment manufacturers recommend testing at regular intervals to ensure continual safety.
PAT Testing Procedure
We provide a full PAT testing service in accordance with the current UK code of practice and is completed by a fully qualified engineer.
We undertake the testing of any quantity of appliances and on completion of testing, we will issue certification to accompany each appliance.
