Our Roller Shutter Doors

Let’s take look into what that means for doors.
If a door is covered by the Harmonised European Standards (hEN) It is legal to require that it must be CE certified. Doors with additional powering requirements will need to be assessed according in accordance with the Machinery Directive to establish safety standards.
If your door isn’t CE labelled, isn’t CE labelled, or fails to conform to CE standards, it could result in a fine of up to PS5,000 and a maximum sentence of 3 months of jail time for the company’s director. This is a criminal act and is a serious offence of reckless disregard for safety placing the customer at risk and allowing shortcuts. It is illegal and a serious breach of the law. Trading Standards are the enforcing authority in the UK. The CE mark for powered doors is required in the Machinery Directive for a long time, and the CPR adoption in July 2013 aided in raising awareness.
There are several steps to get your product CE approved and marked. First, it is necessary to determine the CPR specifications and other requirements that must be identified, dealing with the performance as well as any dangers. Then, the product requires to be evaluated, whether this is testing and inspection, calculation, or any combination of these and you cannot get too comprehensive.
The installer/supplier of the door is accountable for ensuring that any safety devices like the safety edge, limit switches, and torque limiters are compatible with the doors correctly and are fitted in the system. When the CE certification is granted an item, a “Declaration of Performance’ has to be prepared that contains the complete specifications for the product’s performance. It must also be understood that electric doors must be accompanied by a ‘Declaration Of Conformity’ to be issued for each installation.
