When it comes to the approval stage, our products are tested at twice the stated loading capacity (safety factor of 2.1). We have our very own on-site test area, where we carry out destructive tests on our products to check the reliability of the structural calculations made during the design stage, prior to starting production. The products authorised with a specific logo have also been verified and certified by specialists from a notified body at international level.

Each one of our products is supplied with an Instruction and Warning Manual and the respective manufacturer's Declaration of Conformity (please note that products in the categories "event & removal ramps", "ramps", "gangways", "bridges" and "tail lifts" are not subject to CE certification). As well as the product certification, Metalmec has also been given certification for its in-house quality management system.
