Metal and wooden building materials
In ideal environments, common construction materials like metal and wood are very durable and can last indefinitely. However, design or construction deficiencies or lack of proper maintenance can result in less-than-ideal conditions under which construction materials will degrade. For that reason it is important to check these building materials on various aspects. Kiwa can help you to do so. Together we can make the high quality of your construction product visible!
Metal construction products
Metal as a construction product is regulated according to the European Construction Product Regulation CPR and European harmonized specifications or according to national standards. The testing, inspection and certification of metallic construction products is a core business of Kiwa. We offer our services for example for
- Reinforcing and prestressed steel
- Structural metallic products
- Pipes, tanks and ancillaries
- and many more
We are using our international Kiwa network to offer our services worldwide and according to the most important quality marks, like CE, Ü-Zeichen, KOMO, STF, FI or voluntary marks.
Wooden construction products
Certification of wooden products guarantees the product requirements of the building authorities and the fire regulations are met. That is why not only an initial inspection is needed, but continuous surveillance of the producer as well. This needs to be done by an independent and accredited notified testing laboratory. Kiwa can help you to make the high quality of your wooden construction products visible.
