HELIFIX confirms CE marking compliance

Helical wall ties, fixings and masonry reinforcement specialist, HELIFIX, is pleased to confirm it has completed all CE marking requirements for its new build and masonry repair products.

CE-marked Helifix products include the stainless steel new build wall ties TimTie, TurboTie and StarTie, plus the versatile remedial tying and pinning system DryFix, the multi-purpose fully grouted CemTie and the widely used structural reinforcement and crack stitching bar HeliBar.

Helifix’s compliance follows an extensive programme of independent product testing, at approved facilities in the UK and Germany, in line with the demands of the European Standard EN 845-1 Specification for ancillary components for masonry.

Under the new EU Construction Products Regulation, all products manufactured after 1st July 2013 and covered by a harmonised European standard must carry the CE mark or cannot legally be sold.

John Heseltine, Helifix Technical Manager, said,

“2013 will see CE marking on our innovative range of new build wall ties for the first time, however we have been CE marking other products we supply to mainland Europe for some years, meaning we were better prepared for this new EU legislation than some other UK businesses.”

“At Helifix, we have always recognised the importance of product testing and our test data spans many years, going far beyond basic legal compliance. Our in-depth understanding of how our unique helical profile performs in various substrates and wall constructions enables Helifix engineers to offer technically-sound, project-specific masonry repair solutions.”
