Nordic gets the CE Mark
Published: 25 July, 2014
Nordic Garden Buildings has secured the CE Mark for its range of freestanding double-glazed greenhouses, pavilions and orangeries.
After the CE Marking was confirmed, Nordic director Justin Williams said: “The load test easily surpassed the UK snow loading requirements of 60kg/sq m, and also passed the Scandinavian snow loadings of 175kg/sq m, being tested to a maximum load of 300kg/sq m. To put this into perspective, this is more than a typical car park would be designed to support and is equivalent to around 3m of fresh snow, or around four tonnes on the roof.”
CE Marking is a verification by a manufacturer that its products meet all EU health, safety and environmental requirements as relevant to its class, and became compulsory for any building structures as of 1 July 2014.
In Nordic’s case, the CE Mark follows eight years of sales in the extreme conditions of the Scandinavian market. According to the company, in the UK, its range has been welcomed as stylish yet hassle-free, combining lifestyle chic with low maintenance. Nordic also says that its multiple-use buildings are practical all year round thanks to the thermal efficiency of their double-glazed construction, and are built to withstand the extremes of Scandinavian weather, so are particularly strong.
