One-stop-shop for windows and doors certification

BRE Global and LPCB testing and certification services for doors and windows

We offer a one-stop shop for all of your windows and doors certification needs, providing independent, third-party certification covering the following performance attributes:

– Acoustic performance
– Fire
– Security
– Thermal insulation
– Weather proofing and weather protection.

BRE Global is a UKAS accredited testing laboratory No.0578. The supporting testing can be conducted in our extensive range of fully equipped laboratories near Watford, or by other independent laboratories recognised by BRE Global. We can also arrange for some testing to be conducted at manufacturers’ premises, in the UK or abroad.

Third-party certification positively distinguishes your products from those of your competitors and gives your customer confidence in their performance. It can also help you to meet legal – and sometimes contractual – obligations and mitigate liabilities that might otherwise be faced if you were to supply non-conformant products to the market.

Our window and door services include schemes for the certification of:

– General performance
– Residential security* (PAS 24 and LPS 2081)
– High security* (LPS 1175)
– Fire performance

*Recognised by Secured by Design

We also offer certification for Intruder resistant glazing and certification of windows, doors and curtain walling systems under our European Façade Security Scheme.Our schemes are very widely recognised throughout the UK and in scores of countries across the globe. The certification process for Loss Prevention Standards is summarised here.

In addition, BRE Global is a notified body for the CE marking of windows and doors.
