European Standard BSEN1433
EN1433 is a European harmonized standard under the Construction Products Directive 89/106/EEC. Tests covered in EN1433 include load test (D400KN), weathering test (R+) and watertight test. PDS achieved these standards under rigorous assessment by Lloyd's Register Quality Assurance.
Highways Agency Interim Advice Note
The Highways Agency issued advisory note IAN117/08(v2) to clarify their interpretation of BSEN1433. PDS played an active role in drafting the requirements for this to ensure the regulations were fair, legal and workable for all manufacturers within the European Union.
All PDS documentation has been inspected by the authors of IAN117/08 and the Technical Services Director of the HA who are satisfied that we are fully compliant to IAN117/08 and EN1433.
PDS have supplied and are supplying the largest contracts in the UK and Ireland. This includes Highway Agency, National Roads Authority and Department of Environment contracts. We also have contracts in Germany, Italy, Slovakia, Spain, Switzerland, Dubai and South Africa.
PDS are happy to make all our certification available to interested parties - please contact us to request copies.
