CES Quality Standards
CES products are manufactured to the relevant British – EN standards with a certificate of entitlement to use the B.S.I. kitemark.
The B.S.I. system not only regulates the quality and consistency of the final product but also the following:
- The Production process from daily, weekly and monthly maintenance and observation checks to quarterly calibration of all weighing equipment.
- Transport and delivery process to ensure timely deliveries and that working time of concrete is monitored from when it is batched until it’s offloaded.
As well as the ready mix, floor screed and concrete products being tested, all the materials that make up the mixes are also certified in their own right.
With the BSI system we can ensure your concrete products are always of the highest quality and meet the approved standards. Routine independent quality testing is carried out by Construction Testing Services (UKAS accredited) materials testing company. www.constructiontestingservices.com Test certificates are available on request.
