Hiring test instruments can be cost effective

BSRIA Instrument Solutions, instrument hire

Hiring the expensive and sophisticated instruments that are required for mandatory testing procedures, especially those involving safety, is extremely cost effective, according to Alan Gilbert of BSRIA Instrument Solutions. He cites the example of a ‘middle-of-the-road’ Class 1 sound-level meter with octave bands. Such an instrument costs upwards of £3000 and may be needed only very occasionally. Hiring such an instrument from BSRIA Instrument Solutions costs about £150 a week.

Instruments hired from BSRIA are set up by professionals ready for use on delivery. Calibration certificates are readily available, and instruments are properly maintained. With regular contract monitoring still evolving, changes can require updating or replacing testing equipment, making such rental services invaluable. BSRIA Instrument Solutions keeps up to date with legislation, or even ahead of it.
