Certification for Building Envelope Components and Systems

Validate the performance and compliance of building envelope components from the point of manufacture to the end user.

Building entrance

UL Solutions' Building Envelope teams help owners, contractors, consultants and architects close regulatory gaps, confirm compliance for industry bodies and insurance underwriters, differentiate products and maintain best practices through certification schemes and the associated testing in the European building market.

Feel confident in the performance and compliance of your fenestration and performance mock-up products

We provide services to help you feel confident that your window and door fenestration and performance mock-up products meet quality and performance needs. Our services address products such as installed windows, curtainwalls, doors, glazing and cladding.

Meet the challenge of industry bodies calling for risk mitigation and certification of rainscreen, façade and fenestration products

We are accredited to provide certification services and carry out the associated testing in our state-of-the-art UK-based building envelope laboratory. Our certification criteria—or schemes—are designed to satisfy a range of industry bodies and insurance underwriters in the UK building market, including Secured by Design (SBD), National House Building Council (NHBC), British Standards Institution (BSI) and Premier Guarantee.

Product certification can help you signify your commitment to go above minimum market requirements and differentiate your products in the market while supporting export to markets where third-party certification is mandatory.
