Roto Roof Windows receive mandatory CE markings of construction products

The construction industry has faced a significant change in the way in which construction products are sold in Europe from the 1st of July.

Under the Construction Products Regulation 2011 (CPR), it will become mandatory for manufacturers to apply CE marking to any of their products which are covered by a harmonised European standard (hEN) or European Technical Assessment (ETA), from the 1st of July 2013.

This is a major change as affixing of CE markings under the provisions of the existing Construction Products Directive (CPD) is currently voluntary in the UK.

The EU Construction Products Regulation (No. 305/2011 – CPR) lays out conditions for the marketing of construction products. Manufacturers of construction products will be required, when placing a product on the market, to make a Declaration of Performance (DoP) for the product, and affix the CE mark. Continue reading

‘More freedom for more convenience’ – Roto Designo Opening

Perfectly reflecting the Roto policy of ‘More freedom for more convenience’, the Designo roof windows range is really perfectly positioned.

In comparison to the conventional centre-pivot roof windows, the Roto Designo roof window’s opening axis is positioned at the top of the window which allows the sash to open outwards with one handle at the bottom. There is no obtrusive sash jutting into your living space, blocking the view or creating an obstacle course on your way to the open window.
