There has been some major changes in the recent few years due to the development of the EN131 standard to envelope as many product types under one standard.

 

British Standard Class 1 BS 2037 (Aluminium) or BS 1129 (Timber) - Heavy Industrial Use

These standards have been with drawn by British standards, which means that manufacturers can no longer have licence to Kitemark products they would normally manufacture to these standards.

We still manufacture to these long standing and robust standards.
