CE Marking & DOP's

CE Marking

CE Marking

From the 1st of July 2013 all construction products covered by a harmonised European Standard need to have a Declaration of Performance made and be CE marked in accordance with these requirements covering that product when placed on the market. 

CE marking is a key indicator of a product's compliance with EU legislation. The CE mark is specified by the EU, but refers to the relevant country's regulations.
Within the UK this enforces compliance with Building Regulations (Part L), which is applicable for all external windows and doors covered by the legislation.

This change affect us directly as we manufacture fully glazed windows. Therefore, we have to make a Declaration of Performance and CE mark our products to show that they comply with the relevant standards.

Basically, any manufacturer has to declare a few characteristics to show the products performance. Most manufacturers do this already, this is just asking for some mandatory requirements to be declared.
Within the UK there are 3 minimum essential characteristics required:
1. Whole item u-value (not the centre pane only)
2. Safety devices (this requires the correct paperwork to be fitted)
3. Dangerous substances (which is not relevant for most joinery)

WE FULLY COMPLY WITH ALL THE ABOVE LEGAL REQUIREMENTS AND CE MARKINGS WILL BE ON ALL OF OUR RELATED PRODUCTS.

Declarations of performance of some of the 

standard off the shelf windows we can supply are below.

We can also supply any bespoke windows & doors  made to achieve your 

required Uvalues and can supply them with the correct 

calculations through Buildcheck to issue full CE marking.
