What is a Kitemark?

What is a Kitemark?
Have you ever wondered what a kitemark is? Companies across the UK will display them and promote those that they have. However, what does it mean to you as a customer?
Here are CR Windows, we hold four kitemarks. They are for different parts of our business. Kitemarks are awarded by the British Standards Institution or BSI group. They will be used to reassure customers that the products, which they are buying are of a high quality. They are associated with products where safety is important. Asides from windows, you will also find them associated with things like crash helmets and smoke alarms.
What do our four kitemarks mean for our customers?
Let me explain what our various accreditations mean…

  • Our first kitemark concerns our windows. CR Windows are unique to our local competitors as we manufacture all of our products on the premises. To ensure that the windows that we produce are of a level of quality, they will be tested by the BSI on a regular basis at their own testing facilities. They will test them in extra weather conditions and also for their security. It means that we can be secure in the knowledge – as can our customers – that the windows, which we manufacture and install, are the best quality and will cope under any duress.
  • The second kitemark that we hold is in regards to the casement windows that we produce. Our windows are tested for their enhanced security performance and have to be able to resist prolonged forced entry. This kitemark demonstrates that we are producing the most secure windows for our customers.
  • Thirdly, our surveying and installation services are tested and approved. This kitemark shows that our surveyors and installation teams are working to the highest quality standards.
  • And finally, we promote our energy rated windows. We are able to do this because the quality of our windows are regularly tested by the BSI Group. They check all of our processes and paperwork from manufacturing right through to the installation of your windows. They must comply with industry standards that will ensure that your home is well-insulated from the cold.

By having these kitemarks, we are independently verified by the BSI Group. We are very proud of these accreditations just as we are proud of the products that we manufacture and install.
