Third party endorsements build trust and strengthen partnerships. Our accreditations illustrate our ongoing commitment to best practice and give clients further confidence in the products and services we provide. We’ve listed our accreditations below, and where possible, have provided a download link for the associated certificates.
A number of our building envelope systems have passed British Standard fire tests conducted by a certified third party. These tests aim to support and reassure customers who are specifying systems on new build or refurbishment projects when considering how a building will behave in fire.
A vital design consideration, fire testing can help to ensure that the structure will not contribute to the spread of any fire, as stipulated by building regulations.

CWCT (Centre for Window & Cladding Technology) use various testing methods, which determine the level of serviceability of a window, façade or cladding systems when subjected to various levels of water, air and solid object impact. The final level of certifications depends on the pressure reached or the degree of damage caused after impact.
The standards that make up the CWCT tests are calculated to give independent verification that windows and cladding designed for the building envelope will achieve the values expected.
Façade failure is the most common cause of failure in a new building (source: Centre for Window and Cladding Technology).
CWCT testing, combined with good design and installation, will give ultimate peace-of-mind that a product will deliver on its intended performance.
The tests include:
• Test pressure requirements based on design and wind load
• Air leakage
Products now tested to CWCT standards include:
– Platinum Rainscreen types:
• Linear (cassette panels with joint straps)
• Modular (cassette panels with folded ends)
• Fusion (1.5mm aluminium cassette panels with a honeycombed aluminium backing pressure bonded to the rear of each panel)
– V-Plank Rainscreen
– 102mm I-Line system with 300mm web.
The Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme (FORS) accreditation has been developed to encourage companies to improve road freight, including safety, vehicle emissions and enhanced operations. Many organisations will now not allow drivers onto a site without this accreditation.
In a thorough audit, Bailey was required to submit detailed information on its past two years of fleet fuel consumption, CO2 emission calculations and tyre use. Alongside this, our two HGV drivers underwent a comprehensive training programme, including Van Smart Training covering safety, productivity and fuel efficiency and the Safe Urban Driving (SUD) course.
FORS Bronze and Silver give customers reassurance that we are meeting legislative requirements, as well as being sustainable, while ensuring deliveries are made as efficiently and swiftly as possible.
One of the best known standards, ISO 9001 addresses various aspects of quality management and provides guidance and tools to guarantee that Bailey’s products and services consistently improve in quality to meet customer requirements.
An independent international organisation, ISO includes 162 national standards bodies and 21,895 standards. These world-class standards support innovation, ensuring quality, safety and efficiency. Globally, new and existing clients are now actively looking for these accreditations in order to meet their own regulatory commitments.PDF Download
The British Board of Agrément (BBA), widely acknowledged to be the UK’s single most important approval body for construction products, has awarded both Bailey System 17000 and Bailey Atlantic with full Agrément certificates.
This accreditation states that both are long lasting, high quality roof waterproofing systems, with resistance to wind uplift and foot traffic.
BBA approval is recognised by building control, government departments, architects, local authorities, specifiers, and industry insurers like the NHBC, as unbiased and impartial confirmation of the product’s performance and durability. Selecting BBA approved products enables the specifier and contractor to avoid problems at any stage of the building process and queries about the performance of key products.
The following certificates can be viewed and downloaded as proof that the product has been rigorously tested and compliant with Building Regulations, and is proven to last for the defined period.
Bailey Atlantic is a sustainable TPE (thermoplastic polyethylene) single ply roofing membrane available in 3 thicknesses.
“Durability – under normal service conditions the membranes will provide a durable roof waterproofing with a service life in excess of 25 years.”
Bailey System 17000 bitumen felt membrane is continually tested and refined, maintaining the optimal balance of bitumen, plasticisers and fillers to ensure the highest quality waterproofing.
“Durability — under normal service conditions the system will provide a durable waterproof covering with a service life in excess of 30 years.”
Sustainability is incredibly important in modern construction. Therefore, many projects are being considered for BREEAM accreditation.
BREEAM (The Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method) was first published by the Building Research Establishment (BRE) in 1990 and is the world’s longest established method of assessing, rating, and certifying the sustainability of buildings.
Many of our building envelope systems can contribute to attaining credits in the BREEAM UK New Construction 2018 guidelines, helping a building to achieve its overall BREEAM rating.
For example, Bailey Atlantic, our single ply flat roofing system, is a TPO / TPE membrane, which means it can obtain credits under “responsible sourcing of materials” in that they have none of the potentially harmful environmental factors associated with the manufacture of PVC membranes. They contain no chlorides or HCFCs and there are no carcinogenic fumes as is the case with other materials.
We have pledged our support for the National Federation of Roofing Contractor Safe2Torch campaign. The campaign has been developed in partnership with contractor and manufacturer members of the NFRC and seeks to significantly reduce the risk of roof fires when using gas torches, either to dry out roofs or when used to install torch-on membranes.Safe2Torch
Pledging support means we have read and understood the NFRC’s guidance and are committed to promoting and implementing the campaign throughout our organisation.PDF Download
ISO 14001 focuses on environmental performance. With sustainability a key pillar of our company values, it was important that we achieved this standard to build on its green credentials. From air conditioning and cleaning products, to recycling, waste reduction and fleet emissions, ISO 14001 covers the breadth of the business.
