TechnoNICOL – Italiana Membrane guarantees a constant quality standard of products and, thanks to the cooperation and exchange of experience with the group’s technicians, has the opportunity to implement the product assortment and propose new waterproofing solutions.
TechnoNICOL – Italiana Membrane has always been careful to comply with all legal requirements, trying to stay ahead of the times by obtaining the most important certifications.
From the ISO quality system 9001 for the management of all production and document processes, rising to ISO 14001 e 14021 for environmental product certification and management.
The company is certified for factory production control according to the Construction Products Directive CPD 89/106/EEC and for CE marking of products according to the standards ofEN13707, EN13969 and EN14695.
In addition to company certifications, TechnoNICOL – Italiana Membrane has obtained multiple certificates issued by accredited external bodies, certifying special features and specific performance of various products.
The DVT (Technical Assessment Document) is a voluntary certification issued through the Italian Construction Institute (ITC).
The DVT certifies voluntary performance that is not considered in CE marking and is a very important document, mainly for the Italian market. Membranes with the DVT certificate are considered the top quality.
Some products have been tested by the British Board for Agreement (BBA) certification institute-recognized throughout the construction industry as a symbol of quality.
For the evaluation of fire behavior from the outside of roofing systems, reference is made to EN 13501-5.
The classification is based on the results of 4 types of tests (adopted in different countries of Europe), according to the CEN/TS 1187 technical specification.
Based on passing or failing one of the tests, a specific classification is given: Broof T1, T2, T3, T4.
TheBROOF classification (t2) is the one with the most extensive extension rules, in fact the product is tested on different laying media (combustible or non-combustible), while the other classifications (t1), (t3) and (t4) are valid only if the stratigraphy tested in the issuance of the certificate is respected.
Bituminous membrane enriched with a special root-resistant additive, which has passed the test according to EN 13948. The certification was issued by the Institute of Horticulture, UAS Weinstephan – Triesdorf.
Membranes in the RADONSTOP line offer protection against radon gas, preventing this dangerous gas from entering building premises. Their effectiveness is certified by the CSI Institute in Bollate (MI).
The mineral slate flake coating WHITE PLUS gives bituminous membranes a high SRI (solar reflectance index) that can reflect much of the sun’s rays.
The WHITE PLUS finish can reflect heat up to 2 times as much as a standard slate mineral coating and is therefore able to contribute to “passive cooling” of buildings.
In 1988, the Council of the European Communities issued Directive 89/106/EEC on construction products. This Directive stipulates that products intended for use in construction works may be placed on the market only if they are suitable for their intended use. In all EU member states, there is a presumption of conformity in use for products that enable the works in which they are used to meet the essential requirements specified in appropriate interpretative documents if they bear the CE marking.
For bituminous membranes for roof waterproofing, the effective date of the European harmonized reference standard, namely EN 13707:2004 published on 09/06/2005 in the Official Journal of the European Union, has been set for September 1, 2005. Therefore, a transitional period of coexistence between the harmonized standard and national technical specifications is provided. The termination date of this period was set for September 1, 2006.
Under EU legislation, on construction products, the manufacturer is required to ensure that products placed, for the first time, on the market are designed and manufactured in accordance with the prescribed performance requirements. To this end, the manufacturer is responsible for declaring that the product conforms to the requirements of the technical specification.
This declaration, once the Factory Production Control certificate of conformity issued by a Notified Body has been obtained, allows the CE marking to be affixed to the product, on a label attached to it, on the packaging or on accompanying documents.
Independent certification institutes that have certified our products:
On 9/24/1997 Italiana Membrane obtained from SGS ICS certificate no. 97,160, certifying that the company has complied with all the requirements of UNI EN ISO 9001:1994.
On 05/06/2009, the company adjusted its Quality certification to the new standard UNI EN ISO 9001:2008 and later to UNI EN 9001:2015.
The scope of certification is “Design and manufacture of waterproofing membranes and thermal insulation laminates and marketing of own-brand products.”
The company undergoes two annual audits, by the certification body.
The purpose of UNI EN ISO 9001:2015 is to define the minimum quality management system requirements necessary to achieve customer satisfaction through compliance with specified product requirements.
The company’s Quality Management System documentation consists of an Integrated Quality and Environment Manual and operating procedures. All documents are managed in controlled form.
“Design and manufacture of laminated waterproofing and thermal insulation membranes and marketing of own-brand products”
The purpose and scope of UNI EN ISO 14001:2015 specifies requirements for an environmental management system to enable an organization to implement a policy and objectives that take into account legal and other requirements to which the organization subscribes and information regarding significant environmental aspects. The standard applies to environmental aspects that the organization identifies as those that it can keep under control and as those over which it can exert influence.
Having an EMS is an initiative that involves major commitments of time, energy and capital, not only in the planning and implementation phase, but also and especially in the maintenance phase.
Technonicol Italia would like to thank the entire company organization and qualified suppliers who actively contributed to the achievement of the environmental management system. The certificate was issued by the certification body SGS.
