Experience – Listed Buildings
Installing new audio visual equipment into listed buildings such as historic churches can present a whole raft of challenges.
Show Production Services have years of managing and delivering installation projects into these scenarios and have a unique appreciation of the architectural sensitivities of such venues. Our creative design team will work alongside and advise you on how to develop uncompromised technical solutions that meet the stringent requirements of approvals processes such as Church of England faculty.
We want to go further than just designing great sound systems, and we realise that in order to achieve excellence and the highest standards of sound quality we have to understand and manage the acoustic environment in which we are working. We appreciate that the acoustics of your venue are the foundation for audio quality.
Show Production Services acoustic specialists will help you take your audio installation further by creating the perfect acoustic environment, whether you need consultation on a new build or need to tackle acoustic problems in an existing venue.
All electrical installations are carried out in accordance with the requirements of BS7671 (IET wiring regulations) by our team of qualified and certified electricians. This significantly enhances Show Production Services capacity to deliver complete installation solutions to our clients. Having these electrical skills and certification within our in-house team enables us to offer a more comprehensive and streamlined service to installation clients and helps us to ensure that all elements of our installation projects are delivered to the same exacting standards that Show Production Services has built its reputation on.

PAT testing of equipment
Show Production Services in-house electrical team are qualified to carry out a portable appliance test (PAT) on all your lighting and sound equipment. We can carry out the test at your premises, but we prefer to have the equipment at our workshops where we have all the necessary spares and tools. PAT test on an item includes:
- Inspect the plug, cable, lampholder and cable grips.
- PAT test the item, testing the earth continuity and the insulation resistance.
- We will turn on the item, checking that the current consumption is correct and that there is no earth leakage.
- We will give your equipment a unique number, and fix a test label to the item.
- We will note all the results and give you a copy with a certificate of testing.
In the event of an item failing the test, minor necessary repairs will be carried out immediately, small stock items such as nuts, washers or earth crimps will be supplied free of charge. Larger items like plugs, new cable or cable glands will be fitted and charged for. The item will then be retested free of charge. If the failed item requires a more expensive item like a bulb, lampholder or lens, we will contact you with a price before proceeding.
Please contact us for a quote.
The price per item varies. This depends on; where the items are to be tested (on site or at our workshops); the number of units to be tested; whether we have to collect and return the equipment and if so, the distance involved; and whether the items are hung and need to be re-hung afterwards.
Price per item is approx. £3.00 to £5.00
