General introduction to www.nordicfacadesolutions.info
A significant contribution to safety is made when buildings are designed and constructed in compliance with building regulations and such compliance is strongly verified by technical inspectors. In order to ensure that process, each party that is involved in the building must take its own role responsibly and respect the role of others.
Nordic Facades Solutions’ role is to ensure that its products meet applicable European standards represented on its sole source for technical information: www.nordicfacadesolutions.info. It is important to understand that all other information is merely for indicative purposes and should be verified independently.
We trust that all parties involved in construction, from design phase to building phase and further on, take their role and responsibility seriously and respect the role of other parties involved. Nordic Facades Solutions’ role as panel supplier is to supply the products ordered by the customer. It is within the scope of other professional parties to clarify which Nordic Facades Solutions product is to be selected for a particular building. The same applies to how Nordic Facades Solutions’ products should be applied and how Nordic Facades Solutions’ products should and can be combined with other products. We are not involved in the actual construction of buildings and do not have knowledge of the complete structure of buildings including the local building rules and regulations that apply to them.
The use of Nordic Facades Solutions’ products in any project, including the use of Nordic Facades Solutions’ products in combination with any other product, is to be in full compliance with all local laws, codes, rules and regulations. We advise that assistance from qualified professionals is sought in selecting, ordering and applying our products for any project. Nordic Facades Solutions is not a specialist on local building codes nor a designer, installer or contractor and is not in the position to provide any advice or guarantee compliance other than in respect of Nordic Facades Solutions’ representation on its products only.
