We currently operate over 20 procedures which have been written specifically to cover design, purchasing, goods in and out, manufacturing, welding procedures, machining, fitting, finishing and all the way through to customer satisfaction.
Many of our procedures have been incorporated into the design and fabrication of steel structures, under CE marking BS 1090 compliance. In addition, our suppliers are constantly reviewed and all non-conformances are investigated and concluded. All materials we use are certified and all welding wires are recorded and traced.
The UK is mainly inspected under the ADIPS certification scheme. At Garmendale we take our references for such UK parks and attractions from HSG175 which gives the guidance notes for many aspects of our work. In particular, the design and build of rides, refurbishment and modification to existing structures.
Our European customers require their certification to be accredited by TŰV, which is a leading provider of independent inspection, testing and certification services worldwide, and includes TŰV-SŰD and TŰV-Nord. The BS EN 13814 fairground and amusement park machinery and structures standard provides the backbone for all compliance required to achieve the safety standards set out by TŰV authorities. Naturally, Garmendale are proud to have worked and achieved both forms of accreditation.
