Changes to CE Marked goods in the UKů

Wednesday, 18 November 2020

Change is happening… as the UK leaves the EU at the end of the year our CE marked goods will be changing to UKCA marking from the 1st January 2021.

What this means to you?

Products that previously required the CE Marking will now require the UKAC (UK Conformity Assessed) marking, during this transition you may find products still CE marked of which you can continue to use however some products purchased after the 1st January may be marked UKAC, but some products may have both marks as warehouses and business adjust to the new requirements. 

Both marks will be recognized throughout 2021, but the CE mark with no longer be recognized within the UK from the 1st January 2022 on newly manufactured products. This will not apply to existing stock that has been manufactured before the 1st January 2021.

The UKCA mark on products will only be recognized within the Great British market including, England, wales and Scotland. Northern Ireland will require the CE Marking or UKNI Marking.

As these changes begin to take place within the UK market if you have any technical enquiries please speak with our experience and knowledgeable team at Welling.

How to measure a Cylinder Lock

Finding the Right Size Cylinder
You don’t need any special tricks or tools to accurately measure a cylinder size, you can do this simply with a metric ruler by taking the existing cylinder out of the door and measuring, this only takes a few moments and gives the most accurate measurement. Some are known to use there expert eye and measuring from the outside face of one backplate to the other but it is not something we would recommend for an accurate measurement.

Measuring from Existing Cylinder
Before you remove the cylinder for an accurate measurement, double check that the existing cylinder does not stick out significantly from the handle backplate. Ideally, it should sit flush or just slightly protruding, ideally no more than 5mm.

Many cylinders are held in place by a Fixing Bolt that is screwed from the door edge through a threaded hole on the side of the cylinder under the cam.

Bold as BRASS

Introducing you to Brass finished door hardware, as it makes a statement within the interior industry it is ideal for both traditional and modern environments. Over recent years door hardware has developed from contemporary stainless steel through to a modern black finish, but now brass is here, and it is ready to stand out. 

Brass can give a range of finishes from satin to polished and antique to matt giving warmer tones and an added touch of elegance. Interior designers have been featuring brass in kitchens and bathrooms for the last few years, but we have seen an increase in the need for brass toned products over recent months not just for the home but in commercial installations.
