We export to clients around the globe
Eccles holds its own BSI Kitemark license KM656600 for the standard EN124-2:2015. This certification confirms our commitment to demonstrating leading levels of consistency, quality and reliability throughout our entire range.
This is demonstrated further by Eccles being one of the first companies globally to be awarded certification from the British Standards Institute for the most recent EN standard for manhole covers and frames BS EN124-2015.
In moving from the previous accreditation (BS EN124:1994), we have completed further and more stringent testing to transition our kitemark to the latest certification.
We’ve invested heavily into this area as to exemplify the high-quality and reliability of our products to provide you with the peace of mind that comes with the knowledge that our products have been extensively tested and certified by the world’s best independent third-party bodies. We also work with many other certification bodies such as SGS, LRQA, NF, TL, DIN & Lloyds British.
Our UK testing facility and machinery is custom built for the testing of manhole covers and grates falling under EN124:2015. Our digitised test load machine can apply a load of up to 150 tonnes with a bed size 1000×1000. A wide range of manhole covers and grates can be tested at our facility on this machinery, which also has the capability to carry new additional tests in EN124 pull out and tilt test.
After practically testing the samples and prototypes, we thoroughly inspect and analyse each one to ensure they are manufactured to the design requirements set by Eccles and meet the parameters and specifications of the corresponding standard. Bringing this process in-house is a huge benefit as allows us the flexibility to make dynamic adjustments and modifications to perfect the product for optimum functionality and efficiency. Only once these stringent requirements are met, and our rigorous testing is complete, is the product is then ready for mass production.
