“This is an obvious and logical step for both businesses,” said Jim Rodger, managing director of the new business. “Not only is it logical but it’s great news for all of our customers as it reaffirms the brand’s commitment to the UK and gives the market some real choice!
“Now, both our garage doors and commercial doors will be marketed under the Teckentrup name. We confidently expect that commercial door sales will grow swiftly and eventually form the major part of our business - as is the case already in the German market."
He said Teckentrup's complete commitment to certification will be the catalyst behind their sales growth in the UK steel hinged doorset sector.
“The company completely supports and is driven by the introduction of the Construction Products Regulation (CPR) that was introduced on July 1, 2013 with regards to external doors and EN14351-1. We believe third party testing and declaration of performance not only delivers business benefit, but also raises standards across the industry.
“It delivers a level playing field upon which specifiers of external doors can evaluate the quality and characteristics of products to ensure they will deliver the required performance. This is even more vital when the harmonised standard for fire resistance performance characteristics EN16034-1 comes into play during 2015.
“It is hugely important that installers of these types of product not only believe - but can prove that - they are fitting compliant product. Teckentrup products are exactly what they need, in terms of quality, consistency and conformity.
“One of the reasons why membership of the Door & Hardware Federation is so important to us is that the federation has long been promoting the need for both performance declaration and certification to both specifiers and legislators.”
