European Union’s construction product regulation takes effect in full on 1 July 2013 and accordingly CE marking will become mandatory for steel constructions as of 1 July 2014. Manufacturers may use CE marking to declare that their construction products meet harmonized European standards or have been granted European Technical Approval. These documents define the properties products must have in order to be granted the right to use CE marking, and also describe how the manufacture of these products is supervised and tested.
Deltabeams are manufactured for the European markets in Peikko’s production units in Finland and Slovakia. Inspecta Sertifiointi Oy has granted Peikko’s Lahti production unit and SLV Hannover Peikko’s Slovakian production unit the third party certificate of factory production control according to standard EN 1090-2:2008.
Deltabeam is Peikko’s composite slim-floor system for multi-storey buildings of any kind. It allows flexibility for layout changes throughout the service life of the building and enables easy HVAC installations. With the use of Deltabeam the depth of the whole structure can be reduced, which means savings in construction time and costs as well as in heating and cooling costs. Deltabeam also enables different kinds of cantilevers and architecturally challenging façade solutions without the use of in-situ casting.
”We are very pleased that CE marking has been granted to our Deltabeams. Peikko wants to be among the first companies to realize the requirements of the European Union’s construction product regulation.” comments Topi Paananen, CEO of Peikko Group Corporation.
