eclad meets the most severe performance categories of the Centre for Window and Cladding Technology (CWCT) and has been independently tested by Wintech Engineering Ltd a fully accredited test laboratory.
The eclad system has achieved ‘CE’ marking status as defined by Federation of European Window & Curtain Walling Manufacturers’ Association (FAECF) and is deemed to show compliance with all relevant standards throughout the European Union Member States including thermal and acoustic values.
