A1 Flue Systems Achieves CE Marking

Commercial flue, natural lighting and ventilation specialist A1 Flue Systems has achieved CE Marking for our complete flue system.

We understand that we are the only manufacturer in the UK to secure a single accreditation for a complete system, rather than numerous ones for all component parts.

This means architects and building contractors will only have one accreditation for a fully installed flue system - rather than an onerous amount of documents for ones made from individual parts.

Director of A1 Flue Systems, TJ Moir, is delighted that the company has achieved the accreditation and recognises the impact that CE Marking will have on the industry.

"From 1st July 2013, It will become mandatory for manufacturers to apply CE Marking to products such as flues, stoves, radiators, fans and other HVAC products, and I'm delighted A1 Flue Systems have achieved this," she said.

"A1 Flue Systems welcomed the introduction of CE Marking as our company has always operated to the highest standards of manufacturing and has an innovative programme of research and development to continually drive up standards."

"We are in the unique position of achieving the CE Marking for a complete system, doubled with the fact that ours is a British-made product."

 

From 1st July 2013 it will become a legal requirement for all building services products covered by the harmonised European standards to have a CE Mark when sold in the UK.

Fellow Director, John Hamnett, added that prior to the introduction of CE Marking, standards had been voluntary.

"CE Marking is a welcome development within our industry. It's arguably the biggest for a decade and one which A1 Flue Systems has embraced wholeheartedly," he said.

"Any developments that raise standards can only be a good thing for the industry and it has created a level playing field where architects and building contractors have clearly defined specifications to work to when planning flue systems for anything from huge flagship developments, such as The Shard, to simple commercial installations."
