CHEAP REINFORCEMENTS RISK SAFETY AND STANDARDS, SAYS REHAU
REHAU has warned fabricators and installers they risk fitting substandard windows and doors and incurring hefty fines every time they use non-approved steel reinforcements for PVC-U installations.
Mark Gajda, Certification and Quality Manager at REHAU, said: “It’s important that fabricators and installers understand the consequences of purchasing reinforcements from non-system approved suppliers and recognise the risks to their customers and their business.
“Every time an installation is fitted using alternative components not approved by the supplier, the fabricator is essentially changing the physical make up of an approved design and therefore it will not perform as expected. This practice has repercussions for safety, quality and the reputation of the windows industry as a whole.”
It is not against the law for fabricators or installers to purchase and use steel or aluminium reinforcements from a third party – rather than a system – supplier, yet it can have very serious financial and legal consequences.
Firstly, the product may not perform as it should in situ. For example, the structural or wind loading calculations will no longer be valid if the reinforcements are different from those specified by the system manufacturer, and any BIM modelling data supplied by them will also be incorrect. The WER rating and U-value calculations will also be invalid and thermal performance could be adversely affected too.
Secondly, the use of third party reinforcements invalidates any industry standards previously accredited to the system. Standards – such as PAS24 and BS 6375 – are awarded on the basis that the same components and hardware are used by the fabricators and installers of the product, and they are therefore of equal standard to the windows or doors that were assessed under test conditions.
Failure to meet PAS24 standards also means that installers or fabricators need to find another way of meeting the Approved Document Q of the Building Regulations for England.
Third party certifications, such as BSI Kitemark, CE Marking DoP are also invalidated by the use of non-approved components. To retain these certifications, fabricators need to retest the altered products – at their own expense – to prove their product still complies with the standards. The cost of certification testing can run into tens of thousands of pounds.
Fabricators and installers using alternative steel or aluminium reinforcements also forfeit the manufacturer’s warranty for the products, should the third-party components cause issues further down the line. This means that any repairs or replacement required will also need to be done at the expense of the fabricator and installer.
Mark concludes: “Maintaining the synergy between tested products and installed products is the only way that we can assure customers that the products being fitted do what they say they will in terms of performance and standards. Any changes or third-party components introduce unnecessary risks and can damage the reputation of the supplier, the fabricator and the installer so we would urge people to think ‘real deal’ when it comes to steel.”
REHAU’s Windows Solutions team complete the Three Peaks Challenge for charity
REHAU’s Windows Solutions team complete the Three Peaks Challenge for charity
The adventurous Windows Solutions team at REHAU has successfully conquered the famous Three Peaks Challenge this September raising a total of £7,500 so far, for the company’s chosen charity of the year, Scope.
The challenge brought together 27 people from different departments and locations across the UK, Ireland and Italy and comprised of climbs up Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon. That’s a walk of more than 26 miles, a total climb of over 10,000 feet and more than 450 miles driven between the peaks!
Of those that took part in the challenge, Arthur Dylan Roberts, Kevin O’Neill, Sam Tynan, Richard Hardstaff, Andy Pinnock and Faye Tompkins represented the Windows Solutions team. 60% of those who participated declared victory and completed the challenge in less than 30 hours.
The team enjoyed stunning panoramic views of the lochs and amazing weather conditions during the first climb at Ben Nevis on the Saturday morning, even witnessing a rare sighting of a broken spectre right at the top!
They joined together to work through the more challenging parts of the trek, walking in low temperatures, darkness, wind and rain on Saturday evening at Scafell Pike and encountering tough terrain, mist, and another downpour in the early hours of the Sunday morning on Snowdon. The inclement weather wasn’t a deterrent, only helping to reinforce the group’s positive spirit and determination to complete the challenge and they were overjoyed upon achieving this. Many have described this as an extremely rewarding experience and one of the highlights of their time at REHAU.
Sam Tynan, Junior Sales Manager at REHAU was among those who completed the Three Peaks challenge together with Communications Director - Windows, Faye Tompkins and Technical Manager, Arthur Dylan Roberts.
Sam said: “Reaching the summit of Ben Nevis and punching through the cloud layer to a stunning view was a truly fantastic experience. The challenge was also a great opportunity to meet new people in different sectors of the business. Despite the difficulties of waking up at the crack of dawn and encountering the welsh drizzle, I’d certainly have another go at it and possibly try and get them bagged in under 24 hours!”
“The Three Peaks sparked some new friendships and the morale of all the participants were high all through the challenge.” Faye said. “We’re on the lookout for our next big test and are currently batting ideas around. It’s definitely the start of something quite special for us and it was all the more rewarding doing it with such a motivated group of people. It was one of the best things I’ve ever done!”
Kevin O’Neill, Commercial Manager at REHAU also shared his thoughts on the experience: “It was a very well organised event and I applaud the efforts of the organising teams and all who participated to help raise money for a well deserving charity. The positive team spirit and overwhelming support from everyone pushed me to do my very best and we definitely made some wonderful memories.”
To assist the walkers in raising money, a fundraising event was held each month from April to August. All money raised will go to Scope, REHAU UK’s charity of the year 2018.
On completing the challenge, REHAU employees were treated to a celebratory lunch in Blaenau, where REHAU’s manufacturing facility is located.
