Q-railing is the first company to be awarded the new BSI Kitemark for ‘Protective Barriers in Buildings’ for their quality and quality control procedures which focus on safety.
The accreditation demonstrates that Q-railing products meet the requirements of BS 6180, and that the company has the Quality Control procedures and processes in place that guarantee the high and consistent quality of their products, surpassing the requirements of both national and international standards.
Kitemark was originally only used in the UK, but it is now recognized throughout the world as a mark of quality.
Q-railing's Kitemark-certified products include their refined d-line, Q-line stainless steel baluster railing systems and the Easy Glass glass railing range.
To achieve the Kitemark, companies have their products or services independently evaluated by BSI Product Services to ensure they conform to stated standards, and their quality systems are assessed to ensure they can consistently produce products or services which comply with the relevant standard. The product or service is subject to an on-going evaluation programme.
Testing and assessments are carried out to meet recognised British, European or international safety and quality standards. A company can only display the Kitemark on its product when it has shown that it can meet these stringent standards.
