With the introduction of CE Marking on the 1st July 2013, it’s important to note that composite door pioneer, Solidor, have been ready for a number of months now and they can also boast that each of their doors carries BSI Kitemark (KM), among other recognised quality standards.
In the case of doors, CE Marking is a declaration that a product meets the performance characteristics of the relevant standards, something that Solidor products achieve with relative ease. In addition, Solidor products also carry Secured by Design and achieve PAS 23/24, along with the fact that the company carries BSI ISO 9001:200/2008.
Quality is at the very heart of Solidor and not only do they offer a number of enhanced product features such as 17 colours inside and out, but also the fact that they specify hardware from leading brands such as Mila and Avantis International. Combined with the fact that their products are manufactured in the UK, there’s overwhelming confidence in their feature packed range of solid composite doors, which are now also being sold through a nationwide Recommended Installer network.
Given that Solidor has now become the fastest growing composite door company in the sector, investment in staff, capital equipment and world class manufacturing processes has been of prime importance. The company also suggests that people should also look beyond CE Marking, which is not a quality mark, to other standards such as Kitemark and Secured By Design as a means of assessing the capability of suppliers.
Pierre Mifsud, operations director of Solidor comments: ‘We have been ready for CE marking for a number of months now and can boast much more in terms of recognised standards. The fact that all of our doors are manufactured in the UK rather than from imported door blanks from the Far East is another important feature of Solidor.’
