Lucideon Provides Testing of Masonry Ancillary Components to Enable CE Marking
The 2013 specifications for masonry ancillary components (EN 845-1, 2 and 3) have recently been included in the Official Journal of the European Union.
EN 845 parts 1, 2 and 3 are applicable to ties, tension straps, hangers, brackets, lintels and the bed reinforcement of steel meshwork.
At present, products can still be CE marked to the 2003 (as amended in 2008, where relevant) standards; however this period ends on 08 August 2015. After this date, all products will need to conform to the 2013 standards. Testing to the new standards is required to support CE marking.
We are able to test all of the products within the EN 845 specifications to ensure that they conform with the latest standards and CE marking requirements.
