New Certification Scheme for the Façade Industry

Latest News Thu, Nov 9, 2017 10:47 AM

Wintech Testing & Certification is pleased to announce the introduction of its new WinMark Certification scheme for the Performance of Curtain Walling and Rainscreen Cladding products.

This new scheme makes us the first and only company in the UK to offer both CWCT weathertightness testing and certification of these products.

We have been working closely with the NHBC to ensure that our WinMark scheme can be used to demonstrate compliance with NHBC Standards 2017 and they have released the following statement:

“NHBC welcomes the development of the WinMark certification scheme, which we believe will be useful in demonstrating compliance with NHBC Standards Chapter 6.9 Curtain walling and cladding.”

The scheme is available throughout the UK and Europe to organisations specialising in the fabrication of Curtain Walling, Brickslip Cladding and Rainscreen systems.

The certification process includes an evaluation covering your products, their performance and an assessment of your manufacturing processes and factory production control systems.

Wintech also specialise in providing ISO 9001:2015 certification to the façade industry and Enhanced Security Performance for windows and doors.
