Colt Cowls achieve BSI Kitemark™

Date Posted: 25 October 2017

The BSI Kitemark™ is a world-renowned symbol of quality and safety. By attaining the BSI Kitemark™ Colt Cowls, established in 1931, joins an elite group of brands in providing its customers with total assurance about the quality, safety and performance of its chimney cowls.

When purchasing a Colt Cowl customers can now be fully confident that the product will be of unrivalled quality, will conform to the relevant standards and perform exactly as expected.

The Kitemark™ is the international benchmark of performance approval and the process that a company must go through to attain the mark is rigorous and time consuming. This includes regular factory inspection, assessment of head office controls and procedures and the achievement of the relevant BSEN standards applicable to the products. For Colt Cowls these procedures were a natural adjunct to its already considerable commitment to quality including the maintenance of the ISO 9001:2015 quality management system in its factory.

As part of the Kitemarking process Colt Cowls also became the first chimney cowl manufacturer to meet the recently published exacting new standard BSEN 16475-7:2016. The Colt Cowl catalogue shortly to be published illustrates and clearly identifies the products which are subject of this standard.

The Colt Cowl range is available from all good builders merchants, fireplace centres and hardware shops throughout the UK. The Colt Cowl catalogue can be obtained by calling Head Office on 0870 241 1041 or visiting
