Q-railing awarded new kitemark certificate

Q-railing has been awarded the new Kitemark for ‘Protective Barriers in Buildings’, which demonstrates that Q-railing products meet the requirements of BS 6180, and that the company has rigorous quality control procedures and processes in place.

Kitemark was originally only used in the UK, but it is now recognised throughout the world as a mark of quality.

Kitemark certified products include Q-railing’s refined d-line and Q-line stainless steel baluster railing systems, and its Easy Glass glass railing range.

To achieve the Kitemark, companies have their products or services independently evaluated by BSI Product Services to ensure they conform to stated standards, and their quality systems are assessed to ensure they can consistently produce products or services which comply with the relevant standard. The product or service is subject to an on-going evaluation programme.

Testing and assessments are carried out to meet recognised British, European or international safety and quality standards. A company can only display the Kitemark on its product when it has shown that it can meet these stringent standards.
