The BSI Kitemark for balustrades and protective barrier systems is a certification scheme for manufacturers and suppliers of glass and/or metal systems for use in or around building developments.
The first BSI Kitemark certificates for balustrades have been awarded by the British Standards Institution (BSI) to Pheonix Balustrading, Delta Balustrades and Q-railing, following extensive independent testing carried out by Lucideon.
Steve Newman, Protect Manager at Lucideon, commented: “We are very pleased to see the first certifications being awarded to manufacturers who came to Lucideon for their testing requirements. By obtaining certification, Phoenix Balustrading part of Cooke Brothers, Delta Balustrades and Q-railing have proved that their balustrade systems lead the market for quality and safety.”
Lucideon engineers, scientists and technical consultants work from a purpose-built, large-scale BSI associate laboratory. The UKAS accredited facility provides a space for materials development, testing and consultancy.
Ian Chamberlain, Certification Technical Expert – Construction Products, BSI, added: “We congratulate the first three companies to be certified to this new scheme, and look forward to working closely with them in the future.
As scheme membership grows, the relationship with our clients along with our collaboration with Lucideon will ensure we develop standards to keep pace with the latest developments in barrier design, whilst recognising high quality products. Ultimately this provides specifiers with real choice in the marketplace.”
