Andrews Fasteners Limited, following recent transitional process with Lloyd’s Register Quality Assurance (LRQA) gained approval to the latest version of EN 14399-1:2015.
We are proud to be the first company in the United Kingdom to become approved to the latest edition of the standard and one of the first companies in the world.
Following new approvals, new assemblies for preloading will be associated with a new type of CE Labels and a new layout of Declaration of Performances following the strict requirements of the new standard. Technical documentation for the new assemblies to k-Class K2 (or K1) will now be supplied with Torque figures for installation purposes. Previously, there was only a requirement for supplying km and Vk figures, from which engineers would follow a specified formula in EN 1090-2 and then calculate the required torque figure for the specific installation.
