Standards and Classes

Most of our products have CE conformity according to DIN EN 14592. Our declaration of performance, ITT ("Initial Type Testing") test reports and factory production controls must correspond to harmonised standards and the Construction Products Directive EU 305*.

* Construction product directive EU 305:  The directive lays down conditions for the placing on the market  or making available of construction products. This is done by establishing harmonised rules to express the performance of construction products in relation to your "MAIN CHARACTERISTICS", and on the use of the CE marking on those products. (DIRECTIVE (EU) No. 305/2011 OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND OF THE COUNCIL of 9 March 2011 - chapter 1, article 1)

We are happy to provide the corresponding documentation if required.

On January 23, 2018, we received the European technical approval for our construction staples. With our resin specially developed for this application, we exceed the limit value stipulated in the EAD, which means that our ETA construction staples can be used for "permanent" and "long" lasting loads with a calculated value of 70 N.

On August 28, 2020, the German Institute for Construction Engineering (Deutsches Institut für Bautechnik – DIBt) issued the “National technical approval / general construction technique permit” for “Load-bearing timber connections using LignoLoc® wooden nails”. After extensive tests and complex calculation models, all expectations of the expert committee were met.

The approval enables the planning, design and execution of load-bearing connections in timber frame construction. Planks and panels made of solid timber, wood-based materials or gypsum fiber can be attached to wood building materials using LIGNOLOC® wooden nails. In addition, connections can be made with LIGNOLOC® to produce bracing and load-bearing wall diaphragms.

The application dimensioning of sheet-metal-to-wood is not possible with either the EC5 (timber construction) or the EC 3 (steel construction). For this reason, a national technical approval of the German Institute for Building Technology (DIBt) for fastening sheet metal to wood has been applied for.

In July 2018, a general type approval (No .: Z-14.4-818) for our SCRAIL® ROOFLOC® fasteners to connect sheet-metal-to-wood has been issued.

With this approval, our product can be used in static or quasi-static areas. For example, roofing or wall cladding made of sheet metal can be attached to a wooden substructure with our SCRAIL® ROOFLOC® fasteners specially designed for the purpose.

In order for construction projects be able to use the most advanced methods and materials, they must fulfil the official requirements of the applicable building regulations (Building Codes). The International Code Council Evaluation Service (ICC-ES) publishes so-called 'evaluation reports' in which materials, products and manufacturers are listed that correspond to these building codes.

The ESR-1539 Evaluation Report is provided in the U.S. by the ICC on behalf of the members of the ISANTA Association of Manufacturers. It includes performance descriptions for all fasteners which may be used for construction projects on the U.S. market.

Here at BECK, we attach great importance to the fact that products meet the requirements for construction licensing according ESR1539 and thus are suitable for use in construction projects. Extensive Internal and external testing is undertaken in order to ensure the conformity of our fasteners. In this way, we ensure maximum versatility and planning security for our customers.

ASTM develops technical standards and services that help to facilitate better orientation in international markets.

ASTM 1667 specifies nails, pins, clips and other fasteners that can be processed by means of hand-held units, pneumatic power tools and other suitable mechanical devices. We at BECK manufacture our products in accordance with the requirements of ASTM 1667.
