Sheet metal fabricators Designatech (B’ham) Ltd have demonstrated their commitment to staying abreast of industry regulations by becoming certified for CE Marking of Steel Structures to EXC2.
The company has invested significantly in the required changes, including implementing updated processes, intensive training and the implementation of an appropriate Factory Production Control (FPC) system and Welding Quality Management System (WQMS).
The certificates can be found by clicking in the links below, and our details have been entered into the SCCS Directory.
The harmonised product standard for fabricated structural steelwork is BS EN 1090: Execution of steel structures and aluminium structures.
Part 1: Requirements for Conformity Assessment of Structural Components specifies how manufacturers can demonstrate their the components meet the declared performance characteristics assuring they are fit for their particular use and function.
It became mandatory on 1 July 2014 and it is now a legal requirement for all fabricated structural steelwork to be CE marked.
Part 2: Technical Requirements for Steel Structures specifies the requirements for the execution of steel structures to ensure adequate levels of mechanical resistance and stability, serviceability and durability. It determines the performance characteristics for components that the manufacturer must achieve and declare through the requirements of Part 1.
“We’ve always taken great care over the quality and integrity of our steelwork,” says Contracts Manager David Walker. “But given the stringent demands of the standard, clients get the additional peace of mind this new standard affords.”
