The brennenstuhl® quality in detail
Quality assurance and testing
Even during the development process, brennenstuhl® attaches great importance to testing and ensuring the quality and safety of products. brennenstuhl® products undergo numerous quality tests, both in internal quality management and through external, independent tests. We also attach great importance to the certification of our products. In this way, we demonstrate compliance with certain requirements and guidelines as well as our high standards of quality and safety - and it is precisely these standards that distinguish us from the competition!
Three tests briefly explained
Stability tested hard - impact test
Products from brennenstuhl® are tough. Because their plastic parts are tested with the cold impact test: They are subjected to stress at freezing temperatures - in the picture, for example, a cable drum. Cracks or other damage must not occur.
Protection always and everywhere - climate chamber
To withstand heat, cold and humidity: Devices from brennenstuhl® are tested for this in tough tests, such as in the climate chamber. Power strips, for example, have to prove their thermal resistance in long-term tests.
Stay cool in case of short circuit - Glow wire test
Even in the event of a short circuit, electrical appliances from brennenstuhl® must not burst into flames. This is tested by the glow-wire test for socket strips, for example: plastic housings are touched with a 750°C hot wire for 30 seconds. The test is passed if there is no risk of ignition for the environment.
Product quality and certification - safety at a glance
You can always rely on products from brennenstuhl®. A multitude of safety certificates from independent testing institutes shows: The compliance with German and international standards is continuously checked and confirmed.
The abbreviation CE stands for European Community (Communauté Européenne) and documents the compliance of a product with the respective applicable EU directives. Every manufacturer - whether in the EU or in third countries - must affix the CE marking to all products that fall within the scope of the EU directives.
The marking is not aimed at the consumer. The CE mark is an administrative mark. As a kind of "technical passport", it demonstrates conformity with the minimum requirements of the EU directives - whereby no inspection body has to be involved. The CE marking is not proof of tested quality.
More Test marks
Test marks, as we understand it, should serve customers as decision-making aids. For a selection from the multitude of products offered on the market, a label should be an orientation aid. It is nothing other than proof of confidence in the quality of the product and, as it were, in the company.
The mark is a sign of confidence in the company.
The GS mark stands for "tested safety". In order to be allowed to affix the GS mark, the manufacturer must have his product tested by an approved testing body.
The approved testing body for the respective product assesses according to the requirements of the German Product Safety Act (ProdSG), the accident prevention regulations of the employers' liability insurance association, DIN and EN standards as well as other generally recognised rules of technology. This is associated with regular monitoring of the production facilities.
If all requirements are met, the manufacturer receives a product-related certificate and is allowed to affix the GS mark to his product. To maintain the certificate, annual inspections of the manufacturing sites are carried out.
