Gas Safety Certificates

We specialise in inspecting and testing LPG and electrical systems on narrowboats, widebeams and GRP cruisers, certifying installations where appropriate. Often customers come to us to find and rectify faults but we also receive calls relating to work resulting from Boat Safety Scheme non-compliances or the fact that your boat may be residential and require appropriate testing and certification, as many BSS examiners are not Gas Safe registered.

Gas safety inspection and tightness testing, including landlord/homeowner certificates as required.


Installation, Servicing, Repairs

Boats often work in a harsher environment than a home made of bricks and mortar.  Vibration and corrosion are both likely to increase wear and tear on pipework and electrical systems, leading to issues from time to time, even if the original install was done correctly.  Prevention of electrocution, carbon monoxide poisoning and fire are reasons for remaining observant and contacting an experienced professional, should you suspect any part of the gas or electrical installation of your roving home.
