Kitemark certification has been awarded to a number of products in SANHA’s extensive range of copper and lead-free Silicon bronze press fittings.

A large number of SANHA's products were recently awarded Kitemark certification in respect of BS 8537:2010 Specification for press ends of plumbing fittings for use with metal tubes.

This prestigious certification provides assurance to the heating and plumbing contractor of the consistent quality of SANHA products and all certified fittings will display the Kitemark symbol on its packaging.

The Press Gas series 10000 copper and series 11000 Silicon bronze for use within gas installations at operating pressure up to 5 bar are now certified for use at temperatures up to 100C.  They also have the capacity to withstand temperatures of 650C for 30 minutes at a maximum operating pressure of 1 bar for use within installations that are subject to local or national fire regulations.

The fittings included in the BS 8537;2010 certification include seven press-end sizes from 12mm to 54mm for maximum flexibility in system design. SANHA have the largest range approved under this standard. Under a new bsi approval certificate (VC 610240) SANHA's stainless steel press fittings are verified to FprEN 10352;2012 up to 108mm and are the first company to apply for this certification.

SANHA's end feed plumbing fittings have been awarded Kitemark certification (KM 60861) in respect of BS EN 1254-1;1998.

Manufactured in Europe, SANHA’s products are certified to a number of stringent quality standards and the decision to submit this range for Kitemark certification is a reflection of the company’s commitment to the UK market.

Managing Director of SANHA UK Barny Parks commented: “As an engineering-led company, SANHA is proud of its technical excellence. We are delighted that an increasing number of the products we sell in the UK market are receiving the accolade of third-party certification and believe that the credibility provided by this independent assessment gives very worthwhile support to our range.”

SANHA manufactures some 8,000 products for water and gas systems in all standard materials with press, soldered, welded, screwed or push fittings.  SANHA products are widely available through independent merchants throughout the UK.
