Many products in the EU are covered by a directive which states that the manufacturer must declare their product meets the minimum safety, health and environmental legislation required of it by European law. This is denoted by the CE mark on the product.
The BEAB Approved Mark for Intertek is a European Safety Mark used by leading electrical manufacturers to support CE marking and to demonstrate conformity with the Low Voltage Directive (LVD). Importantly however a BEAB Approved Mark on a product demonstrates that Intertek (an independent third party) has verified its safety.
Recognised across the UK and Europe, the BEAB Approved Mark demonstrates the safety pedigree of a product. It shows commitment to best practice, commitment to producing quality goods and most importantly commitment to customer safety. This is the highest safety standard achievable in the UK market. The mark indicates that the product has been manufactured in an inspected factory, using accepted methods, that the products have been tested and assessed by Intertek, and that the products bearing the BEAB Approved Mark are also randomly checked by Intertek on an annual basis.
The use of this mark on our products, packaging and literature indicate Dimplex products meet this standard.
The stringent safety approval process is policed not only through independent testing but also on-going factory and market surveillance. BEAB approval is far more important than the CE Mark, which is a manufacturer’s self-declaration that the product meets the essential requirements of the EU directives.
The only way to have real peace of mind is to insist that the products you buy are BEAB approved – helping keep you and your family safe.
Safety for Portable Heaters
Unlike gas portable heaters, no fuel is consumed within portable electric heaters, so there are no fumes, no risk of carbon monoxide poisoning, no need for extra ventilation, no bottles to be changed and no requirement for annual safety checks.
The majority of Dimplex portable heaters also offer the added reassurance of BEAB approval, the highest safety standard achievable in the UK market.
The presence of a BEAB Approved Mark on a product demonstrates that Intertek (an independent third party) has verified its safety. Look for the BEAB mark on our portable heating products, packaging and literature.
Safety for Air Treatment products
Dimplex humidifiers feature auto shut off when the water tank is empty. Dimplex dehumidifiers feature auto shut off when the water tank is full.
Ensure use of any air treatment product is appropriate to the tasks for which it has been designed.
Dimplex dehumidifiers, for example, are designed for domestic use within the home. For specialist tasks we would recommend purchasing a commercial dehumidifier designed specifically for the role intended.
