QuayQuip’s steel structure fabrication facility in Tianjin PR China is now certified under EN 1090-2 EXC4 and ISO 3834-2, executed by TÜV SÜD.
The EN 1090-2 is a European standard that regulates the fabrication and assembly of steel and aluminum structures, and is recognized by the EU Construction Products Regulation (CPR). EN 1090 has defined four execution classes (EXC). These classes define specific fabrication requirements, with complexity increasing as the numbers rise. The classification procedure is determined by the load-bearing capacity, material and fabrication procedure of the component or structure manufactured. This is linked to the consequences of failure and degree of fabrication complexity.
Execution class 4 (EXC 4) is the highest execution class and comprises all structural components with extreme consequences for people and/or the environment in the event of failure. This can, for example, apply to rail and road bridges in highly populated residential areas or industrial plants with hazardous potential.
The ISO 3834-2 certificate assures process control and the observance of product quality requirements of any type of welded construction. Applying the ISO 3834 norm optimizes QuayQuip’s welding process and assures that the weld meets the set requirements.
Both certificates recognize the expanding capabilities of QuayQuip, and confirms QuayQuip’s ability to manufacture high quality steel structures.
