Bathroom fitting manufacturer awarded for sustainability in the UAE
Bathroom fitting manufacturer Hansgrohe has been awarded the Trustmark for Environmental Performance by the Abu Dhabi Quality and Conformity Council (QCC) for 11 of its products.
Hansgrohe was recognised with the award for a range of mixers and showerheads that are fitted with EcoSmart technology such as the Trustmark awarded Metris S, which consume up to 60% less water than conventional products. This energy saving technology can help developers achieve the highest Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) rating, with products such as the Trustmark awarded Raindance S 100 that has a maximum flow rate of just 9 l/min.
Abu Dhabi Quality and Conformity Council executive director of conformity scheme services E. Abdulla Hassan Al Muaini said: “We are glad to award Abu Dhabi Environmental Performance Trustmark to Hansgrohe. The Abu Dhabi Trustmark communicates to consumers that the company’s products conform to various health, safety and environmental standards set by Abu Dhabi regulators.”
Mr Al Muaini also called upon other players in the industry to follow Hansgrohe’s footsteps to meet the expected Abu Dhabi and international quality requirements and acquire the QCC Trustmark for their products..
The Abu Dhabi Environmental Performance Trustmark acts as a mark of quality for customers, and shows that a specific product conforms to the various safety and performance requirements set by Abu Dhabi regulators. Products awarded the Trustmark by the QCC must comply with all the requirements set in the Assessment and Surveillance Plan for Water Fixture Conformity Scheme in order to be granted a Certification of Conformity and a license to bear the Abu Dhabi Trustmark for Environmental Performance.
