Bilco’s New CE Marked Smoke Vents Embraced by Market

Three months on from the introduction of the new CE marking regulations, Bilco’s new CE marked Type 50REM smoke vents and its CPD seminars on the subject of CE marking requirements have been well received by an enthusiastic marketplace, says the leading access hatch manufacturer. “It has been reassuring to see that our customers are, on the whole, well informed about the need to specify and install only CE marked products and have received our new range with enthusiasm,” said Bilco UK General Manager, James Fisher. “To ensure that the message gets across, we are also running a programme of CPD seminars which explain the changes in the legislation and how they apply to specifying smoke ventilators; the uptake so far has been very encouraging.”

Bilco’s new range of Natural Smoke and Heat Exhaust Ventilators (NSHEV) passed a rigorous third party performance testing process under the Construction Products Regulation (CPR) in order to qualify for the application of the CE mark.

“We see CE marking as a positive step for the industry as it adds clarity and authenticity, removing any remaining guesswork from the specifying process,” he added. “The testing process provides complete assurance for specifiers and installers that our claims about the performance of Bilco smoke vents have been verified by an independent third party and can be relied upon as entirely accurate.

“This means it makes even more sense to specify and install our high quality products and benefit from a robust, long lasting, efficient smoke vent, as well as from the peace of mind that comes from knowing that it will perform as expected in a real and potentially life threatening situation.”
