The UK’s industry-leading PVC-U systems supplier, The VEKA UK Group, has achieved further professional acclaim for the newly unveiled M70 system.
The VEKA UK Group has completed a major update of its BSI Kitemark accreditation with the inclusion of the new M70 and the system is already helping ensure that fabricators are Document Q-ready.
The Matrix 70 Window System from VEKA led the industry for decades, with its classic good looks and impressive technical performance. Thanks to ongoing investment, the new, even more energy-efficient M70 system has been launched.
The system was among the numerous high quality VEKA products showcased at this year’s FIT Show and BSI’s Lorraine Balch was on hand to present the Kitemark certificate to Dave Jones, MD of The VEKA UK Group.
M70 is just one of a number of systems from The VEKA UK Group that will help customers prepare for implementing Document Q. Dave Jones explains: “Security via Document Q is the most recent legislative challenge that the industry has faced, with many customers approaching us for advice on the various routes to compliance.
“Here at The VEKA UK Group, we strive to stay ahead of the curve when it comes to legislation. Our goal is to provide all the ‘tools’ and information our customers need to meet any new requirements in a simple and straightforward manner.
“With the new M70 we wanted to give fabricators flexibility and, to this end, we carried out testing to PAS 24 with a number of suppliers, after researching the most widely used hardware brands. This enables fabricators of the new M70 to follow our pre-tested specification and easily meet the requirements of Document Q.
“Our commitment to supporting customers with Document Q doesn’t stop with M70. Not only have we expanded our approved hardware range to incorporate all of our popular 70mm systems such as VEKA’s Matrix FS and Infinity, as well as Halo’s System 10 and Rustique, but we are already embarking on further partnerships with hardware companies to continually improve our offering, giving our customers the widest possible choice of components while still meeting Government Regulation.”
