CE Mark Certification


Shanette continue to be the class leaders by becoming the first manufacturer of sectional steel buildings in Ireland to be awarded the CE Mark.


CE MARK – The essentials:

There’s plenty of technical detail in the CE Mark regulations, but the essentials are straightforward. They ensure a product that performs, is safe in use, and that all construction requirements are covered. For Garages and Buildings, this covers features such as:

  • Wind and Snow loading resistance
  • Water tightness
  • Load bearing capacity
  • Insulated properties
  • Fully traceable parts and components

In addition to these features, the certification covers our factory production control and helps to ensure that all the units we sell are of the highest quality and are fit for purpose. And, because we’ve got the CE marking sorted, that’s one less hassle for you to worry about.

We at Shanette Sheds are very proud of the fact that we have achieved the CE Marking standard for our Steel Fabricated Sectional structures. EN 1090-1:2009 +A1:2011 Execution of Steel Structures.

“The achievement is one we are particularly proud of as it demonstrates our commitment to providing the highest quality products and services to our clients and further establishes Shanette as a leader in sectional Garages and insulated buildings. The certification is also a significant milestone in our continual efforts to improve and reflects our on-going investment in technology, development and process maturity.” – Darren Keoghan MD
