Excel Products Successfully Recertified by DGU

Posted on April 1, 2015


Van Beest puts great emphasis on the quality of Excel® products. Recently, we have renewed our DGUV Type Approvals for many of our Excel® products. This allows us to H-stamp the components with our unique H number (H94).

DGUV (Deutsche Gesetzliche Unfallversicherung / German Social Accident Insurance) is the umbrella association of the accident insurance institutions for the industrial and public sectors, a leading certification association in Europe.

The test procedure includes verification of materials, verification of the dimensions on individual samples, tensile tests, fatigue tests and some specific tests such as a bending test, a latch lock test and a latch strength test. The results are compared to the specifications mentioned in the EN 1677 norm. With this comprehensive testing procedure and certification of both chain and components, Van Beest supplies the highest quality Excel® products that contribute to a safe working environment.
