CE Marking | for Briton Door Hardware
Products generically referred to as ‘architectural ironmongery’ are regulated by European standards and require mechanical, durability, corrosion and fire test evidence . This provides the construction industry with life safety and security products with a proven reliable performance and a consistent manufacturing quality. Many products shown on our web site are designed and manufactured to meet (and in many cases exceed) these stringent requirements. Wherever applicable our products are CE marked, guaranteeing their performance and ensuring they are fit for purpose.
CE Marking & Declarations of Performance
Many architectural ironmongery products are required to be CE marked in accordance with the Construction Products Directive, including panic and emergency exit hardware and door controls. From July 2013 the introduction of mandatory CE marking under the Construction Products Regulation came into force. For any building product which is covered by a harmonized standard, it is a legal requirement for that product to be CE marked. A number of EN standards covering exterior and interior door sets are at various stages of development. Consequently the mandatory CE marking of door sets came into force from July 2013.
All CE marked products are available with a Declaration of Performance document which can be downloaded from individual product pages on this website.
