Andrews Fasteners Quality
Andrews Fasteners operate a fully controlled quality system maintaining traceability of products from their initial source of supply, into stock, directly through to dispatch to the customer.
Andrews Fasteners quality system is registered under BS EN ISO 9001 and NHSS3 (National Highway Sector Scheme 3) and has been assessed by Lloyd’s Register Quality Assurance UK (LRQA). Both companies also hold CE approval for the supply of preload (BS EN 14399) and non-preload (BS EN 15048) fasteners and also conform to the BCSA purchasing specification. For further information please contact our Quality Department.
Please refer to our Certificates and Approvals section for all quality documents.
To check that the products we supply conform to the relevant standards we operate specialist inspection equipment such as:
- Tensile Machine for pulling Bolts / Setscrews and Fullnuts
- Hardness Machine (portable and static)
- Suitability Test Machine for assembly testing
- DTI / CLI Testing Machine
- Thread Gauges for Bolts, Setscrews and Fullnuts
- Plating Thickness Tester
All records for our inspection equipment are controlled by our fully integrated computerised quality system.
Typically we supply full chemical and mechanical test certificates to BS EN 10204 3.1 for most of the products when requested at the time of placing an order.
For all CE approved fasteners we issue Declaration of Performance (DOP).
We offer 3.2 Test Certificates relating back to the manufacturer. This type of test certificates are the most advanced documents which include external witness testing of the material by an independent accredited body. For details, please contact our Quality department.
