CE Marking Approval

As from 1st July 2013, is it mandatory for all window and external door products supplied in the UK to have a CE Mark for them to be legally placed on the market.

Like many everyday products that you buy on a more regular basis, such as electrical equipment and children’s toys - replacement windows and doors are now required to be CE Marked to prove their conformity to the standards required for sale in the European Economic Area. The ‘CE’ mark itself represents the window/door manufacturer’s declaration that its product has been assessed prior to being placed on the market, and that the essential characteristics of the product meet legislative requirements.

Windows and doors not on escape routes must be assessed according to three essential characteristics: load bearing; dangerous substances; and thermal transmittance. Clearview's extensive product range has been assessed in this manner and each individual product comfortably meets the essential characteristic requirements of BS EN 14351-1:2006+A1:2010 (Annex ZA), also known as ‘Windows and external pedestrian doorsets without resistance to fire and/or smoke leakage characteristics.’

As proof of our compliance, and for your added peace of mind, you will find a Declaration of Performance (DoP) for each of our products below

Clearview - CE Marking Approved

The thermal transmittance performance data in each case is based on the “worst case scenario” - i.e. the most basic product specification - and the results should not be interpreted as relevant to the standard required by the British Fenestration Rating Council Energy Rating scheme or Document L of the Building Regulations. The U-values for these standards are calculated differently to the European Standards and cannot be used for CE marking. Our products, where appropriate, will continue to be licensed under the BFRC scheme and meet the current UK Building Regulation standards. In many cases the actual and achievable thermal transmittance performance of Clearview Home Improvement products is far better than stated on the DoP’s as a result of the enhanced specification used to satisfy UK Building Regulations and achieve BFRC A-rated, B-rated and C-rated products.
