Since 1 July 2014, CE Marking of structural steelwork has become mandatory for fabricated structural steelwork in accordance with EN 1090-1. The standard regulates the products and ensures the quality of the products are kept to a high standard. Irish Fencing Services achieved the EN 1090 certificate on the 27th of June 2019 after successfully completing their audit with OMNI who are a certified Irish body giving the company the capability to complete structural steel projects up to execution class 2 (balconies, mezzanine floors, etc.). Irish Fencing continue to hold their certification each year with a recurring audit.
Along with the EN 1090, Irish Fencing Services have implemented an ISO 9001 system in order to increase efficiency and productivity for the company. The system also helps the company improve customer satisfaction and communication with the customer. The system is centralised consisting of health and safety, infrastructure and traceability of steel. This improves the workflow throughout the organisation improving the quality and timing of our products.
