Leading European systems company Aluprof have been awarded further prestigious Q-Mark Product Certifications by Exova BM Trada, for several of their window and door systems.  The Q-Mark scheme offers independent and impartial third party assessment of manufacturers claims as to product performance and quality.

Specifiers are beginning to place more emphasis on the Q-Mark scheme as it not only confirms the products claims, but also can be followed through to site installation by using the ‘Q-Mark window and door-set survey and installation scheme’ for installers.  Whist initial audits are carried out when certificates are successfully awarded to systems suppliers and installers, retaining certification requires passing future company audits.  Both schemes ensure that specifiers obtain the expected quality of the finished installed product.

Fabricators and installers who are Secured by Design members can use the Aluprof Q-Mark approved systems to offer fully compliant Secure by Design installations which combine the principles of ‘designing out crime’ with physical security.

Aluprof currently have their MB-70 open in and open out window certified, their MB-86 open in window certified and their MB-70 & MB-86 doors certified by Exova BM Trada.   MD of Aluprof UK, Wojciech Brozyna explains, “We have long recognised that ‘installed quality’ is the basis of why construction professionals continue to specify both systems, and sub-contract companies, for fenestration products on their projects.  The Exova BM Trada scheme is becoming well recognised as the independent and impartial third party assessment scheme of choice.  At Aluprof, we continue to pride ourselves on systems design, quality and service, this scheme recognises our efforts in all these areas.”

To complement the existing certified systems from Aluprof, the company has a further twelve products which are currently under audit, pending certification.

Aluprof’s extensive range of systems extend to unitised curtain walling, sliding folding doors, commercial doors systems and a wide range of window systems, all of which are increasingly being specified on a variety of residential and commercial projects across the UK and overseas.  All systems are designed and installed by selected, specially trained companies to ensure each product meets Aluprof’s exacting standards.  Further information is available on the company website at aluprof.co.uk.
