Professional Accreditation: BSEN1090-2
Here at isGroup we are proud to adhere to the highest of professional standards, including our BSEN1090-2 accreditation, gained in 2017. With this prestigious accreditation isGroup became one of just a handful of UK sign companies to achieve this accreditation with Alcumus.
‘Sign companies involved in the manufacture of structural metal components need to comply with BSEN1090-2 as well as proving product conformity through mandatory CE marking. Since July 2014 it is a criminal offence to supply and trade structural steel in the European market unless it adheres to this standard and carries a legitimate CE mark’ – Alcumus (formerly ISOQUAR).
Why is accreditation important?
If you are procuring structural steelwork signs – whether it is projecting signs, retail totems, wayfinding monoliths or signage refurbishment – and you want your signs to be safe, it is essential to ensure that your supplier is BSEN1090-2 accredited.
isGroup received this accreditation for structural steel and aluminium in 2017, making us fully compliant with this important standard. The accreditation ensures that the correct methods of design, procurement and manufacture is carried out at all stages including:
• Structural design
• Weld testing and welding performed by coded welders
• Employment of a trained and responsible welding co-ordinator to oversee works
• Procurement of the correct grades of steel and aluminium and welding components.
