Product certification for
A testing and certification service for tower manufacturers whose clients want to know for sure that their products are safe and reliable. We manage these certification schemes on behalf of PASMA and grant qualifying products a licence to use the T&RGETMARK .
There are various certification schemes available for scaffold towers, depending on the type of product. All testing is undertaken indoors at our own facility, to eliminate the effects of weather or climate on the test results.
BS EN 1004 – Mobile access and working towers
BS 1139-6 – Prefabricated tower scaffolds
This certification scheme is for prefabricated tower scaffolds, which are tower structures that fall outside the scope of EN 1004 but use components from EN 1004 systems. This includes cantilever towers, towers with bridges and towers on stairs. We test these towers in accordance with the combined requirements of BS 1139-6 and PASMA, which include:
BS 8620 – Low level work platforms
When you have your product tested and certified by Test & Research Centre, we’ll grant you a licence to use the T&RGETMARK. The T&RGETMARK is Certification Mark, owned and managed by Test & Research Centre, and applied to qualifying products as a mark of quality assurance.
