Certification mark for building products

Scope:

The certification mark applies to building products, including pedestrian doorsets, windows, curtain walling, grilles and shutters, locks, fittings, door lever handles, door knobs, padlocks and padlock fittings.

Basis of certification:

The certification mark is awarded within the framework of voluntary testing and certification. Depending on the product in question, the test procedures developed by TÜV SÜD are based on various different standards, including EN 1628 (Pedestrian doorsets, windows, curtain walling, grilles and shutters - Burglar resistance - Test method for the determination of resistance to manual burglary attempts under static loading), EN 1629 (Pedestrian doorsets, windows, curtain walling, grilles and shutters - Burglar resistance - Test method for the determination of resistance to manual burglary attempts under dynamic loading),  EN 1906 (Building hardware - Lever handles and knob furniture - Requirements and test methods) and EN 12320 (Building hardware - Padlocks and padlock fittings - Requirements and test methods).

Key words of the certification mark:

  • Burglar-resistant
    The products certified by TÜV SÜD Product Service were comprehensively tested for their burglar-resistant characteristics.
  • Type tested
    The voluntary certification mark with the statement “Type tested” is issued for products and components. The certification mark demonstrates that the product/component was tested and certified by the independent third-party organisation of TÜV SÜD Product Service for conformity with the essential technical safety requirements. The certification criteria vary depending on the products in question.
  • Production monitored
    Periodic surveillance of the manufacturer of a product constitutes the basic premise for certification that includes the award of a certification mark. Certification always requires product testing and regular factory inspections.

    As a third-party expert organisation, TÜV SÜD Product Service verifies that the manufacturer is able to maintain consistent quality in line with the requirements throughout high-volume production and has established the necessary quality system, including incoming goods inspections, lists of materials and finished product testing.

    In addition, calibration of the necessary measuring and monitoring equipment must be ensured. Surveillance and/or monitoring covers the testing of safety-critical components and other materials used. If unauthorised changes are made to the product, certificate validity will expire and the TÜV SÜD certification mark may no longer be used.
