Henchman Professional Tripod TUV Certification!
We are pleased to announce that the Henchman Professional Tripod Ladder range has successfully been TUV tested and approved in accordance with EN 131-2 and EN131-3 regulations. Pro Tripods are due back into stock towards the end of October, and we will dispatch them as quickly as possible. We will continue to explore and develop this area of testing in relation to our various products in the coming months, and keep you updated.
Some background - Tripod Ladders and hedge cutting platforms have never sat within existing EU categories of product for which standards exist to test against (according to both the relevant government department and the HSE). We have therefore never been required to certify them against a particular set of standards, and have established our own and our manufacturers testing to ensure the products safety. However, we recognise that it is helpful, especially to our commercial customers and our re-sellers, to have some common certification visible. So a few months ago we commissioned world renewed German testing house TUV, to pull together relevant parts of EN standards and apply those to our Professional Tripod Range (AIO range), with the successful outcome mentioned above.
