Protect Membranes Awarded STA Assure Gold Accreditation
Protect Membranes, the construction and roofing membranes company, has been awarded the highest level of membership accreditation to the newly launched STA Assure scheme after assessment by the Structural Timber Association (STA).
Achieving Gold Level status, this recognises the range of internal quality standards, management systems and external product performance certification a company holds to provide complete customer assurance in the construction, offsite build and timber frame build sectors.
As the largest UK trade association within the structural timber sector, the STA has established three levels of accreditation to highlight the different specialisms and certification held by members - Gold, Silver and Bronze. Formally recognised by two of the industry’s leading structural warranty and building control bodies, LABC Warranty and Premier Guarantee, STA Assure offers clients total supply chain transparency in future construction projects and a Gold Accreditation demonstrates the commitment of member companies to meet or even exceed current legislation and regulatory requirements.
As a product supply chain member of the STA, Protect Membranes fully meets the requirements of Gold Accreditation by offering an extensive range of independent certification and quality standards. This includes fully audited internal quality procedures to ISO 9001, ISO 14001 for sustainability procedures and OSHAS 18001 for H&S procedures. It also includes a comprehensive technical support service backed up by a thorough product performance testing programme to ensure CE Mark and Declaration of Performance compliance as well as third party independent certification to BM TRADA Q-Mark for its range of construction membranes, airtightness products and roofing underlays and accessories.
John Mellor, Product Manager of Protect Membranes comments, “As a proud member of the STA, we are delighted to be awarded the STA Assure Gold Accreditation, the highest accolade that is achievable. Meeting this accreditation criteria gives us a platform to offer added reassurance to our customers.”
