CE Marking Structural Steel

It's a legal requirement that structural steel must be CE marked to show it's compliance with British Standard BS EN 1090:1+2 which is equivalent to the ISO 3834 standard. Pace Sheet Metal were one of the first contractors in Essex to attain the CE Mark for structural steel.

Pace is certified to Execution Class 2 ("EXC2") which covers a wide range of structural steel requirements. EXC2 is appropriate for the majority of buildings constructed in the UK

Factory Production Control System

Our CE Mark certification demonstrates that Pace has a fully operational Factory Production Control system ("FPC") in place for steel fabrication work, and that the FPC has been assessed and approved by a suitable certification body

CE Marking

CE marking indicates that a product meets the relevant EU standards.  These standards are consistent across all EU countries, plus the countries outside the EU which belong to the single market. Therefore a CE Mark product can be sold in all EU and Single Market countries without any further certification.
