The United Kingdom Conformity Assessment mark (UKCA) is a replacement of the CE mark used in the European Union, for mainland UK. UKCA serves as a declaration of performance to the essential characteristics in accordance with the harmonised standards. The UKCA marking came into effect in January 2021, as a result of the United Kingdom’s exit from the EU, with businesses granted an extension until the 1st of January 2023 to transition to the UKCA marking from CE marking. The business was proactive to the changes in the market and saw it as an opportunity to enhance its product range. Sentry Doors offer its customers a compliant doorset that has undergone extensive testing to ensure it can be trusted to fulfil its role if ever required.
