Unless otherwise advised, all our vintage lamps/lights have been electrically tested. Which usually means that they have had some remedial work undertaken to ensure compliance with legislation, and that they pass the Portable Appliance Test (PAT). Remedial work undertaken usually includes one or more of the following:
Rewiring with appropriate vintage style flex/braid
New CE marked plug top fitted along with an appropriate fuse.
New, energy efficient, vintage style light bulb or tube fitted
External surface cleaned or polished to remove surface dirt
Portable Appliance Testing (PAT) is usually undertaken prior to sale and/or shipping: the lamp/light is electrically tested using a flagship Seaward Europa Plus PAT tester
PAT Tester serial number Serial number: 26C-0243
If no PAT or electrical testing has been conducted on the lighting, the purchaser must have the electrical item inspected by a competent qualified electrician before any attempt to connect the item to a mains electrical supply.
