KEB attains new BSI Kitemark

Maher Patel, KEB's quality manager, checks the quality of an installation in Birmingham

Midlands-based Profile 22 fabricator KEB Fabrications Ltd has become one of the first companies in the UK to be awarded the new BSI Kitemark certification for the survey and installation of windows and doors. This Kitemark allows the company to self-certify that window and door installations it carries out meet current Building Regulation requirements and ensure all works are completed to an audited standard.

The BSI Kitemark for installation joins KEB's growing list of accreditations for manufacturing including; BS7950/7412 for enhanced window security, BS5713 for units and the Secured By Design standard.

Manher Patel, quality control manager, says: "Gaining professional accreditations for products has always been a high priority for KEB Fabrications. As the majority of window and door problems occur during or after installation, we were very keen to ensure our fitting teams and subcontractors were also working within the framework of a recognised professional standard."

"After a lot of hard work we have effectively completed the Kitemark 'circle', giving our customers absolute confidence that every stage of the production and installation process is covered by universally recognised and respected quality marks."

Elaine Durno of the BSI says: "We would like to congratulate KEB Fabrications on becoming one of the first companies to attain the Kitemark for the survey and installation of windows and doors. It is a testament to KEB's continued commitment to drive up standards in the industry that it has invested in this Kitemark - a voluntary certification scheme and an approved competent persons' self-certification scheme. KEB can now benefit from the use of the prestigious Kitemark - a widely recognised symbol of quality, safety and trust."
