Yale Door and Window Solutions is the first hardware manufacturer in the UK to obtain the BBA certification for its window product range.

The BBA certification is an industry recognised symbol of product quality and is distinctive in that all certified products are not only subject to a QA assessment, but also have to pass a full product and manufacturing process audit every year.

This testing includes laboratory-based testing, online evaluation, product inspections, life expectancy assessment, quality management review and training review, which all need to be passed to a high standard.

Grant Stratford, Technical Director for Yale Door and Window Solutions, comments: “Unlike the BBA assessment reports, where the products are assessed once and then no further evaluation is conducted for 5 years, the certification scheme inspects the product and factory on an annual basis.

This proves the ongoing consistency of the product’s performance and the manufacturing process – giving the end user added peace of mind and confidence in the product’s reliability and longevity.

“We previously held the BBA certification for our Defender and Defender Egress hinges, but are thrilled that this now also covers the Yale Hinge & Virage Handle. We are also currently in the process of obtaining the certification for the Yale Shootbolt”
