HOPPE offers a Helping Hand to Make CE Marking as Easy as A, B, C

HOPPE (UK) Ltd leaders in the field of door and window hardware are offering a helping hand to make CE Marking as easy as A, B, C thanks to the ARRONE AR915.
With CE Marking of external doorsets, including emergency escape doorsets, now compulsory, HOPPE, the manufacturer synonymous with innovation, quality and performance in hardware for the architectural and window and door sectors, is on hand to offer advice.
Andy Matthews, HOPPE’s National Sales & Marketing Manager for the Architectural Division comments:  
“Everyone in the supply chain must now heed the legal requirements placed on them with the introduction of compulsory CE Marking. Traditionally, a specifier has had a choice between a complete doorset; a kit of components from a single source for assembly as a tailormade doorset on site; or a door assembly comprising individual components from various sources for on-site assembly. Following the new legislation, while this will not change, it WILL become an offence to put a construction product into the market without a CE Mark if it’s covered by a hEn (Harmonised European Standard).
“This means that from July, any door assembly, completed on site, comprising of components from more than one source cannot be CE Marked as it is not covered by a harmonised standard. This rule applies even if those component parts – such as hinges, door closers, locks and glazing etc – are themselves individually CE Marked.
“Any EN 179 lock product needs to be tested with the lever furniture or push pad supplied as a complete unit and the CE Mark must be applied to lever locksets offering emergency escape on final exit doors, or normally locked doors on escape routes, e.g. wages office; a dispensary etc. 
“Even though AIs will still be able to continue to schedule ironmongery for Internal, External, fire and escape doors in the same bespoke way that they have always done, the introduction of the new regulations on CE marking covered by the Constructions Product Regulations (CPR) is bringing significant changes to the industry.
“When it comes to compliance for external emergency exit door use, ask for a CE marked lockset to BS EN 179, and a Declaration of Performance (DoP) from your supplier. Even more simply, just select the ARRONE AR915 escape lock with one of our compatible HOPPE or ARRONE lever handles and AR228 spindle supplied as standard for your complete CE Marked Lockset.
