Ce marking A rated windows

CE Marking | Roundbrand

As you may, or may not be aware CE marking came into effect from Monday 1st July. it is now mandatory for manufacturers of construction products, including windows and doors, to apply a CE marking to their products. This requirement is part of the Construction Products Regulation 2011 (CPR), which replaces the Construction Products Directive (CPD).

All Roundbrand complete products* sold, will now have a CE mark which will be located in a discreet place on the product as a label. The label will contain information such as the unique company code for each product (e.g Casement C Rated Window = RB-001C), so the product can be identified. Also included on the label will be a URL to the declaration of performance located on the Roundbrand Website.

Every time an order is now made Roundbrand  will issue the CE report paperwork alongside the usual order paperwork. This is then given to the customer to keep for their future records.

*Unglazed items do not require a CE mark issuing form Roundbrand. The customer purchasing the unglazed item becomes a manufacturer if they choose to source glass/ panel from another supplier, and is therefore responsible for providing any CE marking.

If you require any further information on this please don’t hesitate to get in touch with Roundbrand at sales@roundbrand.co.uk , or visit your local Roundbrand Branch.
