What’s your connection with MARC and why is it so important to be a member?
We are very proud members of MARC (Manufacturers’ Association of Radiators and Convectors) and the voice that it gives our industry. Basically, the main goal for all MARC members is that we follow the rules within BS EN 442 and that all involved in the industry, including the end user, are aware of the obligations.
This will ensure that the consumer fully understands what they are purchasing, including the outputs they need, and they can therefore trust the way they are displayed or portrayed.
To be a MARC member, all our products on the market must be tested and have DoPs (Declaration of Performance) submitted; because of this, our customers can be confident that all our outputs are correct.
From a consumer point of view the MARC stamp of assurance is something to look for to give them confidence that their purchase is, firstly legal, and secondly, the output displayed has been achieved through a rigorous testing process.
