Ensure that all safety equipment complies with laws, regulations, and standards.
As an organization, you must be able to rely on safe equipment that meets relevant standards, quality requirements, laws, and regulations. Whether you are using fall protection, steel ropes, lifting equipment, or cargo securing products. With Ropetex and Powertex, you don't need to worry about any of this.
Ropetex and Powertex products are a safe choice for daily use in general industrial applications. Each product is also compliant: it meets current laws and regulations, including the Machinery Directive and relevant EN standards.
➕ Detailed product specifications
When it comes to safety, we go one step further. Our products are manufactured precisely in accordance with our detailed product specifications. These specifications often exceed the requirements set forth in (EN) standards. Every aspect of the product is thoroughly considered, from detailed technical descriptions to labeling and packaging instructions.
➕ Good collaboration with manufacturers
How do we ensure that all products are always safe and compliant? We collaborate directly with carefully selected manufacturers. They are chosen after thorough screening by our locally present audit team. During such screening, we ensure, among other things:
- A high level of specialization in the production of the product.
- The quality of the production process.
- The quality and source of the raw materials used.
- Whether the manufacturer actively engages in quality control systems and applies them.
- Whether the manufacturer thoroughly tests the products and complies with standards after production.
➕ Regular quality audits
Regular quality audits are conducted after the screening as well. This is done by our local audit team. This team consists of local experts with extensive knowledge of, among other things, (European) standards and laws and regulations.
What are we looking for?
During a quality audit, the team checks the manufacturer on the following points, among others:
- Expertise (in the production of the product).
- Document control, ISO standardization, and other required certificates.
- Working according to established ISO procedures.
- Traceability from finished product to semi-finished product and/or raw material.
- Technical details in the production process: is the product being manufactured correctly?
- Condition of machinery: are all machines in order, what type of maintenance is performed, and are calibrations carried out punctually?
- Availability of testing equipment and standard tests.
- Equipment in the internal testing laboratory, including machine checks and testing methods.
- Description of the processes and whether this corresponds with practice.
After an audit, we develop a detailed follow-up plan and monitor the progress of agreed-upon actions. Our brands, Ropetex and Powertex, ensure safe equipment.
