All system procedures and practices are regularly reviewed by top management through the management review process to ensure the effectiveness, capability and improvements required to meet the changing needs of our customers.
Doors manufactured under the Q-Mark scheme offer our clients the peace of mind that they are purchasing fully fire tested door sets. In addition, we are also registered Q-Mark doorset installers, so can offer full manufacture and installation certification on doors tested to up 1 hour. Our doorsets (30 and 60 minutes) have been tested by Chiltern International Fire and Test Certificates are available by request.
FSC® is an acronym for The Forest Stewardship Council whose mission is to promote environmentally appropriate, socially beneficial, and economically viable management of the world’s forests. Gariff are proud to advise that we have been given approval to pass on Chain of Custody and have been awarded our own personal Chain of Custody reference number: E37/TT-COC-002856. CoC certification provides evidence that a certified product such as wood, originates from certified, well managed forests, and verifies that these products are not mixed with those from uncertified forests at any point in the supply chain from forest to the consumer.
