Permaban announces industry-first CE marking

Permaban is now able to begin CE marking its structural products – the first joint manufacturer to do so.

CE marking is a requirement of the Construction Products Regulation 2011, which came into effect on 1st July 2013.  It states that where there is a Harmonised European Standard for a product it must be CE marked for sale in the European Economic Area.  This provides assurance to the client that the product is safe.

There had previously been no clear route to CE marking, due to the lack of a Harmonised European Standard for armoured joints.  However, a regional testing programme by Permaban to meet the requirements of some major European markets revealed number of standards, predominantly EN1090-2, to which our products could conform as a structural element of the building.

In May 2016 Permaban successfully achieved factory certification to CE mark to this standard.  The company places a high emphasis on product quality and consistency and has been operating to ISO9001 for many years.  We began despatching CE marked goods in July 2016.

“This route to CE marking is a watershed moment for the industry,” commented Managing Director Andrew Keen.  “It is another step towards raising industry standards and helping building owners achieve safe, serviceable, durable industrial concrete floors.”

All of Permaban’s products conform to the Construction Products Regulation and hold appropriate CE marking.
