Provided by fully qualified and highly experienced engineers, Hornbill's comprehensive low voltage services will support you at every stage of your LV project, no matter how large or complex.
From design, through installation and commissioning, to the supply of LV switchgear, we can offer a solution to a one-off requirement or provide a turnkey project management facility. Hornbill is a NICEIC approved contractor for hazardous areas and our engineers also provide a full inspection and testing service.
This includes PAT (portable appliance testing) to ensure all your electrical appliances, from hand driers and kettles to TVs and PCs, are functional and safe. Our PAT testing service will ensure you comply fully with the Electricity at Work Regulations of 1989 and the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974.
Hornbill's experience in providing low voltage services spans three decades. During this time we have progressed with technological advances, providing blue chip clients with cutting edge installations ranging from control panels to full distribution systems. We work with a wide variety of cable types, including Cat V and fibre optic up to the very largest SWA and create conduit and bracketry systems, ladder racks and cable trays to the highest industry standards.
We provide as-built drawings and full certification for every piece of electrical equipment we provide and every installation we complete.

Hornbill has considerable expertise in hazardous area compliance. As a NICEIC Hazardous Approved Company we can design, install, inspect, test and maintain all your hazardous area electrical installations in accordance with BS EN 60079 as well as the DSEAR and ATEX regulations.
All work and reporting is carried out by our CompEx EX01 to EX10 qualified engineers, many of whom are trainers and assessors at Hornbill Industrial Training.
At Hornbill, we will provide the practical advice and support you need to ensure that your hazardous area installations comply fully with the entire regulatory framework - at all times.
We offer DSEAR compliance reporting, which includes a detailed visual inspection with the option of an inspection and asset database. We also carry out initial ATEX Inspection and Testing (BS EN 60079-17). This covers the design of your electrical installations within hazardous areas and sets out any necessary remedial work.
Should any gaps exist between the condition of your installations and the regulatory requirements, Hornbill will explain these to you and create a plan to address the weaknesses.
To help you stay compliant thereafter, Hornbill can provide ongoing hazardous area maintenance and inspection and testing services.
Our compliance services cover the Dangerous Substances and Explosive Atmosphere Regulations (DSEAR), Electricity at Work Regulations (EAWR) and BS 7671 Electrical Inspection and Testing.
DSEAR (Dangerous Substances and Explosives Atmospheres Regulations) oblige employers to eliminate or control the risks from explosive atmospheres in the workplace. In DSEAR, an explosive atmosphere is a mixture of dangerous substances with air, under atmospheric conditions, in the form of gases, vapours, mist or dust in which, after ignition has occurred, combustion spreads to the entire unburned mixture.
ATEX refers to the two European Directives for controlling explosive atmospheres:
