Quickslide has undertaken a quality systems audit by CENSolutions for the second time this year “passing with flying colours”.
Compliance with a number of requisites is compulsory for all manufacturers; the Construction Products Regulation (CPR) sets down standards, including BS EN 14351 for windows and pedestrian door sets, and PAS 24:2016, which relates to the level of security applied to windows and doors on new build sites.
Applying this level of scrutiny to a further, optional certification is not something every business is willing to do, the company said.
Ben Weber, managing director at Quickslide, said: “The fenestration market is competitive and so we wanted to find a way of sticking our heads above the parapet and telling our customers that we’re serious about providing a consistently superior service.
“CENSolutions visit us for two days, during which time our policies, procedures and manufacturing operation are really put through their paces. Our aluminium frame department’s processes and procedures were pushed to the limits, and we’re pleased to say that we’ve received 100% pass rate for a third time.
“Additionally, 43,578 new homes were registered with the National House Building Council for the quarter July to September 2018; 2,917 of those in Yorkshire and Humberside. Gaining the CENSolutions third party certification positions us well to tender for new-build contracts, and contributes to building quality, environmentally friendly homes.”
