Environment and Quality
Thinking about tomorrow
Vicaima holds certification for the ISO 14001 and is certified by FSC® (Forest Stewardship Council®), which ensures responsible forest management.
Vicaima has also implemented an internal environmental project which aims to reduce CO2 emissions with the proceeding of the following actions: optimization of the residue collection system for subsequent increase in value or recycling, purchase of an ecological UV line and improvement of the lighting efficiency. Since 1999, waters are treated in a Residual Waters Treatment Station (ETAR). All of Vicaima’s human resources are involved in training actions and awareness campaigns which promote “green attitudes” as concerns the separation of materials for recycling and electric energy consumption.
Vicaima's Environmental Accreditation:
Vicaima has had its Quality Management System certified by the ISO 9001 standard since 1993 and the implemented internal production control system guarantees that all products placed in the market meet the requirements defined by the standards in force. Integrated in this control system is the internal testing laboratory, which enables product assessment and also guarantees the conformity and reliability of the measuring devices.
All Vicaima Fire Doors in the UK are tested by Chiltern Fire to BS476 Part 22 (1987) and third party accredited by both the British Woodworking Federation, under the BWF-Certifire scheme and by BM TRADA under the Q-Mark accreditation scheme. As such all Vicaima Fire Doors can clearly be identified and recognised by looking for the BWF tamper-evident label and BM TRADA Fire Door plug fitted to the doors.
Vicaima and the community
Vicaima’s growth as a company also passes through the focus on a sound and dynamic relationship with the community to which it belongs. Besides its support to the local communities (schools, fire corporations, sports and cultural associations), its contribution in projects of a broader nature on an educational level, NGO’s and social institutions are some of the initiatives which the company promotes with society.
