If you require BS EN 1090-1 compliant profiles we can help
We can provide steel, stainless steel and aluminium profiles for structures in execution class EXC 1, EXC 2 and EXC 3.
Since 1st July 2014, the CE Marking of fabricated structural steel and related metal work destined for use within the construction industry became mandatory and a new EU harmonised standard was bought into effect (BS EN 1090-1/A1:2001).
With many of our customers working within the construction industry, we understood the requirement for us to be able to provide CE ready profiles that conform to the BS EN 1090-1 standard. To this end, Charles Day underwent extensive auditing and implemented a new Factory Production Control system in order to comply with the new rules set out by the Construction Products Regulation (CPR).
Our conformity to the CPR now allows us to provide thermal cutting / profiling of steel and aluminium components for steel structures in execution class EXC 1 up to EXC 3.
If you require flame, plasma or laser cut parts for a project that requires BS EN 1090-1 compliance, you must specify this to our Sales Team during the enquiry stage. We can then source approved materials from CE marked steel mills and implement the required procedures and ensure our profiles meet all required legislation.
By requesting a need for CE Marking we can provide you with profiled parts which have been produced in a way that guarantees they conform to BS EN 1090-1.
1. Customer Enquiry
A customer contacts us with a requirement for a cut profile which is to go on and be used within the construction industry.
2. Customer Request
At enquiry stage the customer specifies to us that the part requires CE Marking.
3. Cutting Procedures
Using CE Marked sheet/plate, profile is processed following strict guidelines set out within our Factory Production Control system.
Upon completion, the finished profiles are BS EN 1090-1 compliant suitable for use in EXC 1 – EXC 4 classes. The profiles are then ready for delivery or collection.
Taking advantage of our state-of-the-art lasers which include 4 CO2 and 2 fibre CNC laser cutting machines, we're able to offer BS EN 1090-1 compliant laser cutting services for sheet/plate up to 4m x 2m and 25mm thickness.
Our traditional flame cutting methods are also suitable to provide CE ready carbon and mild steel profiles and cut parts up to 270mm thick. Multiple flame cutting heads enable short lead times on large batch runs.
We possess one of the largest sub-contract waterjet cutting beds in the UK, able to accept 8m x 4m in thicknesses up to 230mm. We are more than happy to cut your CE Marked material or source and cut CE material for you.
Our BS EN 1090-1 compliant plasma cutting services for structural metalwork are suitable to cut various grades of carbon/mild steel, stainless steel and aluminium in 12m x 5m sheets in thickness of up to 30mm.
Our certification allows us to profile and cut the following metals:
S235, S275, S355, Stainless Steel 304, Stainles Steel 316 and Aluminium.
