NSF International commends Altecnic products

Reinforcing its credentials as a specialist supplier of quality heating and plumbing components for trade and consumer markets, Altecnic has received a coveted award from NSF International.

The global water testing, certification and auditing organisation has recognised Altecnic’s adjustable T-type thermostatic mixing valves (TMVs). These products are the first to be TMV2-accredited against the recently revised 2017 version of the European Standards BS EN 1111 and BS EN 1287, which ensure thermostatic products maintain safe temperature water delivery for bath, shower and washbasin use.

Manufactured in Italy at Altecnic’s parent company Caleffi Group’s state-of-the-art facilities, the TMVs are specifically designed for use in a domestic environment and offer greater protection and comfort for consumers. Altecnic also supplies products that adhere to the more robust TMV3 standard (D 08) for use in hospitals and residential and nursing care environments.

Paul Skinner, quality manager at Altecnic, said: “As a business we’re proud of the quality and performance of our products so we’re delighted to be the first company to achieve TMV2 certification, demonstrating compliance with the long-awaited BS EN 1111:2017 and BS EN 1287:2017.

“TMV2 reassures architects, specifiers, consumers, retailers and regulators that our products have been rigorously tested and found to comply with all relevant requirements for safety, comfort, quality, sustainability and performance. This award from NSF International reinforces our credentials and is a further example of how Altecnic is at the forefront of the UK’s plumbing and heating industry when it comes to compliance with the latest standards.”

Founded in 1944, NSF International is instrumental in developing public health standards and certification programmes that help to protect food, water, consumer products and the environment on a global scale. Certification is only granted once NSF International has evaluated every aspect of a product’s development, from extensive product testing and material analyses to plant inspections and auditing.

Paul Taylor, certification director at NSF International, who presented the award, said: “In granting the NSF Mark for TMV2-accredited valves against the 2017 version of the performance standards we recognise not only Altecnic and Caleffi Group’s current achievements, but also their ongoing commitment to technological innovation and pursuit of the highest industry standards.”
