Travis Perkins uses Clare for electrical safety
By Sarah McCay23 July 2014
Travis Perkins has equipped all of its 140 branches across the UK with B255 electrical safety testers from Clare, part of the Seaward Group.
The compact B255 bench top tester is said to enable electrical safety tests to be carried out quickly and effectively, ensuring that power tools and other electrical rental equipment functions correctly with maximum safety.
Travis Perkins said the B255 could carry out earth/ground bond and hipot/flash testing alongside load, run and leakage testing.
The company said the B255 tester, together with a fleet of Clare A255 testers, was now used by Travis Perkins personnel to ensure that its rental fleet of electrical equipment such as power drills, breakers, freezing equipment and commercial carpet cleaners, were routinely serviced, tested and recorded before being made available for hire.
“We work in partnership with Clare to ensure all our branches comply with the HAE standards for electrical safety testing,” said Shaun Farrow, workshop trainer for Travis Perkins.
“The Clare testers play a very important part in ensuring this - they are extremely easy-to-use, providing accurate and reliable workshop testing.”
Electrical safety testing with the Clare B255 ensures compliance with European and International standards for Class I and Class II electrical products, such as EN60335, EN61029, EN60065, EN50144 and EN60745.
