SIMONSWERK represents innovation, product diversity, quality and service

Longevity and proper functioning are essential for meeting the various demands in terms of technology, safety and design. Every product that leaves SIMONSWERK’s production line in Rheda-Wiedenbrück has corresponding inspection certificates and certifications. By using our products in international construction projects, you can rest assured that you’re adhering to the relevant regulations.

Product certifications

The Construction Products Regulation (CPR) came into force on 1 July 2013 in order to standardise performance data for construction products within the EU. According to the CPR, a declaration of performance must be drawn up for each construction product to be provided with a CE mark. The purpose of this is to eventually strengthen the CE certification so that it represents the sole certificate of conformity for all essential characteristics of construction products.

Declaration of performance in accordance with Regulation (EU) 305/2011

According to the specifications of the CPR, a declaration of performance must be drawn up for each construction product to be provided with a CE mark. In this declaration, product-specific details on seven “Basic requirements for construction works” must be provided. The requirements comprise mechanical strength, structural integrity, fire prevention, hygiene, health and environmental protection, user safety, soundproofing, energy conservation, insulation and the use of natural resources.

Product certification in accordance with
DIN EN 1935 (CE certification)

The CE mark is the basis for the free movement of goods within the European Union. Door and window hinges are tested in accordance with DIN EN 1935.

A hinge is generally only tested in accordance with DIN EN 1935 with a single load-bearing hinge. SIMONSWERK hinges are typically tested with the largest possible number of opening cycles – 200,000 cycles – in accordance with standards. In addition, many hinges were tested with a significantly higher load capacity than the maximum prescribed by the regulations. An in-house production control system and annual inspections by ift Rosenheim now ensure consistent product quality.

In the future, all CE-certified products will have a classification code. This eight-digit numerical block contains all the essential information on the properties, load capacity and area of application of the hinge. With the CE mark, SIMONSWERK now has another seal of quality that is valid throughout Europe and once again emphasises the outstanding quality of SIMONSWERK products.

Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) in accordance with DIN ISO 14025 and EN 15804

Environmental Product Declarations (EPD) form the basis of ecological building evaluations. They have been uniformly defined internationally on the basis of ISO standards and are a mandatory component of the European standardisation project “Sustainability of construction works”.

An environmental declaration for each individual product allows construction works to undergo a comprehensive ecological evaluation. To this end, life cycle assessments provide data on the entire product life cycle, from production and service life through to recycling. SIMONSWERK hinges are installed together with doors or window elements as system parts in buildings. Therefore, as part of the certified quality and environmental management system for the TECTUS, VARIANT, BAKA, SIKU and ALPRO product brands, comprehensive documentation of the required data was prepared.

Internationally tested

We prioritise safety of use, even under extreme conditions. To achieve this, we have our products tested not just in Germany, but also by internationally active institutes abroad. The thoroughness, precision and experience of companies like Underwriters Laboratories, who have been making significant contributions to developing improvements in fire prevention since 1894, and Warringtonfire, the largest independent fire testing laboratory in Europe, Asia and Australia, satisfy the test requirements which arise with SIMONSWERK hinges.

A product leaving SIMONSWERK that has a test certificate from one of these institutes can be confidently used in international construction projects in accordance with the regulations. This compatibility is ideal for architects and designs as well as door manufacturers.

Our many years of experience, paired with the expertise of these renowned testing institutes, allow us to create flawless functional elements. We’re happy to help our customers in using these elements at any time. We look forward to your call.

Company certifications

Company certificates delineate the requirements for the quality management system and outline how a company is to provide its products to customers and contracting clients and approach customer orientation, management responsibility, involvement of stakeholders, etc. These certifications are audited regularly.

Energy management – certified in accordance with DIN EN ISO 50001

In 2014, an energy management system in accordance with DIN EN ISO 50001 was introduced with the aim of reducing energy consumption and the accompanying greenhouse gas emissions, paving the way to CO2 neutrality and systematically improving energy efficiency on an ongoing basis.

This is being carried out with a range of measures, which include digitally recording and analysing energy flows of the associated energy sources in an energy monitoring process, creating performance indicators, procuring energy-efficient machines and components, analysing and optimising processes and implementing plans of action.

We’re no strangers to making use of renewable energies either and we’re continually increasing the proportion we use in order to make further strides in climate protection.

The successful certification and regular monitoring of our management systems by external certification companies validate our efforts and motivate us to uphold and continually enhance these systems.
