All product CE marked
CE mark refers to the European Regulation n. 305/2011 laying down harmonised conditions for the marketing of construction products and repealing European directive CPD (Construction Production Directive or Directive of Construction Products) 89/106/CE. Those norms make compulsory for the manufacturers to test their products (some tests are compulsory, some other optional) at laboratories notified for this activity at European level.
The industry norm is to test efficiency before any durability tests have been undertaken. Even when manufacturers do carry out durability tests, those do not usually exceed 5.000 cycles. Silvelox is unique in the world in that it tests the security of its doors after 20.000 cycles of movement.
The norm of product used (UNI EN 13241-1) contains the list of many requirements the door must have in order to obtain CE mark. Among these the most important and compulsory are:
GEOMETRY OF GLASS PARTS
EMC (electromagnetic compatibility)
RELEASE OF DANGEROUS SUBSTANCES
RESISTANCE TO WIND LOAD
PRODUCTION CHECK IN FACTORY
In addition to the above, Silvelox has certified its garage doors for:
Irrespective of their size, all Silvelox doors fully comply with European requirements and regulations.
The European Regulation also establishes that each certified door is recognised by a label and a Declaration of Performance. On the label, applied on all Silvelox garage, entrance and double leaf doors, CE mark indicates that legal requirements have been fulfilled.
A further certification about Silvelox product quality and the assurance that our doors fully comply with the latest European Norms.
