This marking gives the EU citizens the security that the purchased shower enclosures comply with European quality standards. Basis for this is not a self-declaration, as has been widely mistaken, but a series of extensive and costly testing methods, which are exactly defined by the European Standard EN 14428.Specifically it not only defines the sufficient documentation for installation and maintenance, but it also defines the required properties shower enclosures must fulfil regarding the "cleanability", the "glass breakage" and the "resistance".” Besser wäre “Besides the fact that it defines the sufficient documentation for installation and maintenance it also specifies the required features like "cleanability", the "glass breakage" and the "resistance".
duka has already since years its own laboratory where materials are tested on their properties, their behaviour in a long time interval (simulated), and thus duka has as one of the few manufacturers even the competence and ability to perform the required tests by itself. The customer will benefit not only by the a prior into force entry CE standard marking, but even more by all the findings, which are obtained in such tests and incorporated into product developments and improvements. The test methods are specific to each type (round, corner, niche ...) and carried out for each model, considering the heights and widths of the individual shower enclosures.
