New CE Marking Rules: Are Your Industrial Doors Up To Scratch?

With the new CE marking regulations having been in place since July, our latest post looks at what the new rules entail and whether your doors are up to the job.

From 1 July 2013, it has become mandatory for industrial door suppliers and manufacturers to give their customers a Declaration of Performance and ensure that all industrial doors, other than fire-resistant doors, and industrial door accessories have CE marking. These are just for those doors and accessories that come under the ambit of Harmonised European Standard. These are necessary and mandatory under the new CE Marking regulations.

Declaration of Performance

Today, many industrial door products conform to the EN13241-1-2003 standards. These products come with a Declaration of Performance that is issued to the customer. The declaration is an assurance that the doors are stable, can be open safely, can withstand mechanical resistance and operating forces, and can handle wind-loading.

CE Marking

When industrial doors have CE marking, it is an indication that the manufacturer of the door is taking responsibility or ensuring that the doors measure up to the Declaration of Performance. Therefore, if you are buying an industrial door for your business premises, it is important the manufacturer is compliant with the CE marking rules. It is a sign of high quality that all business premises need. We, at Chiltern Door Systems, offer a whole range of industrial doors that are CE Marking compliant.
