Dynatech Engineering manufacturer of Locit window and door cable safety restrictors, has achieved the requirements set under the new ‘Construction Products Regulation’, enabling them to use CE Marking on their product range, ahead of the 1st July, 2013 deadline.
The Midland based engineering company, carried out all requirements set for the new regulation including; the implementation of quality standard ISO9001 at their Willenhall site and ensuring a ‘Declaration of Performance and System Description’ was available in the public domain, before being able to accredit their products with the ‘CE’ stamp.
Andrew Lane, Managing Director of Dynatech Engineering commented “With the new ‘Construction Products Regulation’ rapidly approaching we wanted to be able to support customers and prepare our products.
“Ultimately, individuals and organisations manufacturing or installing windows and doors are responsible for ensuring products carry a CE mark. We wanted to provide customers with as much support as possible and assure them when using our products, they were tested and complied.”
The new legislation enforced by European Law, requires installers and fabricators to comply by providing products which meet the new directive. Policing will be enforced by Trading Standards and other associated bodies such as; Certass and FENSA. Organisations not adhering to the new regulation could see themselves being investigated and even prosecuted.
Locit range of window cable safety restrictors already complies with British Standard window performance and security test; BS6375 Part2:2009 and surpasses independent performance pull tests. The new CE mark was awarded after successfully passing the ‘Initial Type Testing’ (where the products are tested on aspects relating to safety, health and environment) accredited by Exova Warringtonfire.
“All Locit window cable safety restrictors and door restrictors will carry a ‘CE’ mark from the end of March 2013 and should an installer, builder or fabricator require certification proof, they will be able to obtain documentation directly from Dynatech or Chris Law, Sash Jack Limited” Andrew commented.
Locit range of window and door cable restrictors can be fitted to any material or window type and provides the recommended safe restricted opening in accordance with BS6375 Part 2.
