In addition to long standing BS / EN testing of passive fire protection products is increasingly using Third Party Approvals - such as CE, UL-EU and Certifire, amongst others - to ensure and demonstrate that the products we sell are fit for purpose. The CE mark is a claim that a particular construction product can be legally placed on the market of members states of the European Economic Area (EEA) and is based on the principle that the product specification, and therefore the product itself, is fit for purpose.
The CE Mark provides proof of fitness for purpose and the manufacturer affixing the CE mark shows that the construction product will enable the finished construction works, such as a hotel or school, to comply with the construction products regulation requirements. On the CE product pages of our website you will find links to the latest Certificate of Constancy of Performance (CoC), Declaration of Performance (DoP) and European Technical Assessment (ETA).
EU UL Marking.
The UL-EU mark is intended for use on products destined for the European marketplace. It means that UL has evaluated representative samples of a product or component and determined that those samples comply with the UL-EU Mark service requirements. The UL-EU Mark appears on a product or component with a manufacturer's identification, i.e., company name or trademark as well as a product or component model number. Each UL-EU product page on the this web site has links to the relevant UL documents.
Certifire is an independent third party certification scheme that assures performance, quality, reliability and traceability of fire protection products. Recognised by regulatory authorities worldwide, it is an internationally respected mark of fire safety and one of the most authoritative in the industry. The fundamental benefit of Certifire is seated in giving the regulator, specifier, customer and end-user confidence with regards to the stated performance of the product and provides an informed choice when purchasing or selecting the product.
