Anyone who launches products onto the market knows how laborious and expensive CE marking can be: defining requirements, testing products, documenting all processing steps, printing out the declaration of performance and safely archiving data for 10 years.
MACO’s notified test centre and the CE4ALL service platform offer this comprehensive service. Building elements are checked for their mandated properties according to the Construction Products Regulation BauPVo EU 305/2011 and EN 14351-1. Fabricators can also check their units for joint impermeability and watertightness as well as burglar resistance from RC1 to RC3. As an accredited external partner agency of gdb-LAB GmbH, MACO can conduct these tests and issue internationally valid test certificates.
CE4ALL turns the unit manufacturer into a planner who can build custom-made units for custom-made properties. By entering specific frame data, they can design units on a performance or construction basis, which perfectly suit the environment of the property in question. This means they can comply with the optimum conditions for local circumstances and meet all requirements.
For both the joint test and the driving rain test, there is a basic, standard and premium package available. They include:
The difference between the packages relates to how quickly they are processed and the test certificate. With the basic package, the test is carried out within 40 days of the unit being available at MACO and the customer receives a MACO factory test certificate. With the standard package, the test is carried out within 20 days of the unit being available and with the premium package, within 10 days of the unit being available at MACO. In the standard and premium package, the test is carried out by gbd-LAB and a certificate from the notified test centre is issued.
The basic package includes testing the unit against standards, the system analysis, a test within 40 working days from the unit being available at MACO and a MACO factory test certificate. For additional costs, the RC1N standard package includes the main test on a unit with 20 days of the unit being made available and the premium package guarantees testing with 10 working days. With the basic package, customers are given a MACO factory test certificate, with the standard and premium package, they receive a test certificate from the notified test centre gbd LAB.
The basic package includes testing the unit against standards, a weak-spot analysis, a test within 40 working days from the unit being delivered to MACO and a MACO factory test certificate. The standard package expands upon the basic package with the main test carried out on two units, within 30 working days and with a gbd-LAB test certificate. In the premium package, the main unit test is carried out within 14 working days and a gbd-LAB test certificate is provided.
