Catnic achieves a first for steel lintels with ISO14001

20 Jul 10 Catnic has become the first ever steel lintel manufacturer to achieve ISO14001 recognition of its environmental management policy.

Manufacturing a broad range of lintels, special lintels and building components for the commercial and housebuilding sectors, Catnic is very aware of its impact on the environment. As an organisation it is committed to achieving continual improvement in environmental performance and pollution prevention. Because of this Catnic seeks to support government policy for sustainable business development and target emissions reductions.

The ISO14001 accreditation underpins Catnic’s environmental management system. As an organisation operating in the building products sector it aims to implement, maintain and improve its environmental management through an agreed company policy. The ISO14001 provides assurance to Catnic’s customers, stakeholders, staff and distributors that it is consistently living up to that policy. It also provides a guarantee that Catnic’s processes comply with legislative requirements set by government that relate to the environment.

Catnic’s steel and stainless steel lintels, bespoke products and building components are durable, adaptable, reusable and recyclable. Product development is focused on meeting the continually evolving environmental and legislative landscape. Throughout development and manufacture Catnic aims to: carefully manage its energy efficiency and water consumption; reduce the amount of waste it sends to landfill; and ensure its contract management and purchasing processes fulfill this stringent environmental stance too.

Offering a deep resource of technical expertise for building specifiers and installers, Catnic enables its customers to select the right product to achieve any architectural aspiration. No matter how challenging the design, Catnic aims to make it happen. This includes ensuring that the products selected are specified to meet energy efficiency requirements of the building regulations under Part L – complying with airtightness and thermal performance, while eliminating the effects of cold bridging.

Barry Jenkins, Marketing Manager of Catnic, said: “The achievement of ISO14001 provides testament to the seriousness with which Catnic takes its environmental responsibilities. Offering reassurance to the industry, we constantly strive to improve both our environmental practices and the environmental performance of our products.”
