Edgetech customer Holdens Supaseal Ltd has joined the select number of companies in the UK to achieve CEN1279 Part 3, the standard relating to sealed unit manufacturers making gas filled units. This part of the standard is proving particularly tough to pass with less than 10 companies out of more than 50 that have applied, achieving it so far. But there will be serious consequences for those that can’t pass. When the standard is enforced anyone making gas filled units will either have to pass this test or stop making them.
Mick Holden, Managing Director of Holdens explains why it was important for the company to achieve this standard: “We have been producing units with Edgetech Super Spacer® for over seven years now, and we were confident we could keep ahead of the market by passing this standard with Edgetech’s support. It’s becoming increasingly important for companies to be proactive, to stay ahead of changing regulations. But we’ve always taken this approach to ensure we provide our customers with the highest quality products. Achieving Part 3 means our customers can continue to rely on our products for the highest specification to give them an edge over their competitors.”
