Our focus is on absolute quality in the technology and materials used, in order to achieve perfect functionality and reliability of our products. This is why we have worked hard to achieve numerous international certifications. Many of our products have obtained fire certifications through LAPI and IFT, UL certifications, PEFC and many others, including the important recognition of CE certification.
Sliding door systems
The Kit Futura frame and some of our sliding systems* are PEFC certified: the certification of sustainable forest management which attests in fact that the forms of forest management meet certain "sustainability" and resource regeneration requirements.
* PEFC certified sliding systems: 0500 20, 0500 21, 0500 30, 0500 31, 0500 60 20 ABS and 0500 60 21 ABS
Our hinges are tested according to stringent tests that certify the product as fully compliant with the best performance parameters. They are therefore certified according to the most important standards governing construction products.
Based on performance and production processes, we have certified our products for: Fire Resistance, Functional Durability, Corrosion Resistance, CE and EPD.
Tests carried out according to the reference standards for doors and closing systems which indicate fire resistance and smoke dispersion control. The acronym EI identifies a construction element which maintains, for a specific time "t", the resistance to flames, hot gases and thermal insulation.
CAN /ULC S104
Indicates the number of cycles, for which full operating efficiency is guaranteed.
The test involves moving a door weighing equal to the maximum capacity of a pair of hinges for a given number of cycles. At the end of the cycles, there must be no yielding beyond the limits indicated by the reference standard.
It is a parameter that indicates, according to certain requirements, the degree of resistance to corrosion of door accessories. The parameter assumes particular importance in the environment with high atmospheric corrosion such as industrial or maritime one.
The European reference standard EN1670 requires the hinges to be subjected to a salt spray treatment for up to 240 hours.
It is a declaration of performance and constancy of performance according to the reference European standards for the product category.
The CE MARK implicitly declares that the product is provided with specific documents, regulatory tests, inspections the conformity of which has been ascertained by a notified body (IFT - Rosenheim).
Regular inspection by authorized certification bodies is necessary to maintain the CE mark and verify the conformity of production machines and processes.

NB: the certification achieved by the hinge refers to the performance under the specific conditions. This means that a hinge certified for a capacity of 80 kg with the installation of 2 hinges will only be guaranteed by the certification for a capacity of 80 kg even if a third hinge is installed to try to increase the overall capacity.
TEST BENCH FOR DURABILITY TRIAL
The attention we pay to the reliability of the hinges has led us to install test benches, including one certified by IFT, which we use to test ALL the hinges for multiple durability tests in accordance with the Test protocol specified by the regulations EAD_020001-01- 0405, EN1935 and/or EN1191.
