Structural steel 

Balufab Ltd regularly take on structural steel projects and can supply single beams up to whole buildings. 

BS EN 1090, also known as the "Execution of steel structures and aluminium structures," is a European standard that specifies the requirements for the fabrication and assembly of structural steel and aluminium components used in construction. It outlines the technical criteria and procedures that must be followed to ensure the safety, performance, and quality of these structures. 
BS EN 1090 is important to customers, particularly those in the construction industry, for several reasons: 

Traceability and Documentation: BS EN 1090 requires detailed documentation throughout the fabrication and assembly process. This includes traceability of materials used, welding procedures, testing results, and inspection records. This documentation allows for transparency and accountability, which is essential for ensuring the quality and safety of the final product. 

Project Approval and Permits: Many construction projects require approvals and permits from local authorities. Compliance with BS EN 1090 can facilitate the approval process, as it demonstrates that the structures meet the necessary technical and safety standards. 

Legal and Regulatory Compliance: In the United Kingdom compliance with BS EN 1090 is a legal requirement for fabricators and contractors involved in the construction of steel and aluminium structures. It ensures that the structures being erected meet the necessary safety and quality standards.
Structural Integrity and Safety: BS EN 1090 ensures that the fabrication and assembly processes adhere to rigorous quality control measures, which in turn contribute to the structural integrity and safety of the finished structures. Adhering to these standards helps prevent structural failures and accidents that could lead to injuries, loss of life, and property damage. 

Quality Assurance: Customers can have confidence in the quality of the fabricated components and structures when working with a company that is BS EN 1090 certified. This standard mandates strict quality control procedures, including material selection, welding techniques, testing, and documentation, all of which contribute to a higher level of quality assurance. 

Risk Mitigation: By adhering to BS EN 1090, customers can mitigate the risks associated with poor-quality structures, which could lead to costly legal disputes, project delays, or even the need for expensive repairs or replacements.

BS EN 1090 is important to customers because it ensures that the structural steel and aluminium components used in construction projects meet stringent quality and safety standards. Choosing a company that is BS EN 1090 certified provides assurance that the fabricated structures will be of high quality, safe, and compliant with relevant regulations.
