Catnic has become the first lintel manufacturer in the UK to acquire the BRE responsible sourcing standard BES6001 for its construction products.

The BES6001 standard was published in response to the UK Governments' increasing focus on sustainable development and will enable construction product manufacturers, such as Catnic, to prove to customers that their products have been made with responsibly sourced materials.

The certification, which was acquired by Catnic's parent company, Tata Steel, means that the company's full range of lintels, building component and steelwork products are classified as 'Very Good' under the British standard.

By specifying Catnic products, property developers and designers will now be able to demonstrate a commitment to their own sustainability agenda, at no extra cost. Specification of Catnic's BES6001 certified products will also enable developers to secure maximum credits under the 'responsible sourcing of materials' sections of other standards, such as BREEAM and the Code for Sustainable Homes.

The independently certified assessment has verified the responsibility of Catnic's own operations and that of it's raw material suppliers all the way back to the point of mineral extractions, covering many aspects of environmental and social performance
