For professionals operating in the fenestration industry, windows and doors are a big part of every working day.
To find out how the BBA can provide the kind of product assurances you need to make life easier, click on the icons below.
Established in 1966, the BBA is proud to have worked with some of the most esteemed companies in the construction industry and to have carried out assessments and approval of a variety of innovative fenestration products. BBA approval can lead to more business opportunities in the New Build Market and more business at NHBC sites. Use of the BBA’s strong brand means your brand will be recognised as having been rigorously tested to meet all UK Building Regulations.
BBA Approval also allows you to register your windows and doors with Secured by Design – a leading security approval scheme run by the UK Police to show that products are secure and can meet Approved Document Part Q (security).
Having BBA approval also means that your manufacturing process is constantly audited showing your customers that you are continually producing a quality product.
Over 50 years of unrivalled expertise in building and construction certification means that BBA Agrément is the best possible stamp of approval manufacturers can get. In addition, association with BBA will strengthen your product brand and help to build your reputation in the market place.
When you’re operating in the supply of fenestration products and advising on the best ones to choose, BBA Agrément Certification can provide real reassurances as to an item’s fitness for purpose.
If you’re developing a new product, the BBA can offer R&D testing to satisfy your requirements, and this can be used to underpin Product Certification. Moreover, this test evidence can be cascaded to your fabricators and installers, so they can acquire their own BBA Certificates at a considerably reduced cost.
As a system supplier, you are naturally concerned about compliance with national standards and UK building regulations. BBA Certificates are continually reviewed to keep certificates and legislation up to date, and that means your fabricators stay up to date as well.
BBA Certification provides real peace of mind and gives a boost to the reputation of millions of professionals operating in the building and construction industry.
The good news for fabricators in the windows and doors sector is the BBA can make the road to BBA Certification and approval even easier. We operate a Fabricator-friendly scheme whereby we cascade assessments and test reports from System Suppliers, often without the need for any further testing. Sometimes fabricators can benefit from a full BBA Certificate with just a factory production control visit.
Specifiers and architects need to be able to trust that they can choose high quality products when they are working on new construction sites. BBA Approval means you know a product is right for its intended purpose and meets with all the building standards industry requirements, having been subject to rigorous testing procedures by the BBA.
As well as this, the BBA carries out stringent durability testing to ensure the product remains fit for use, giving specifiers the assurance that their chosen products will last.
But that’s not all. Unlike other certification schemes, a BBA Certificate is all inclusive so you know that all aspects of fitness for use have been considered in order to comply with UK Building Regulations. Other certification schemes only certify to a particular standard, and this often means many certificates could be needed to satisfy fitness for use.
BBA Approval covers everything you need in one certificate, which saves time and is more cost effective.
