Nico invests in BBA Certification and Auditing Programme for Complete Range of Window Products


Nico Manufacturing, leading UK manufacturer of hardware, has recently completed BBA Certification for its range of window products.

The culmination of a twelve month process, Nico is now fully BBA compliant across its complete range – not only Friction Hinges but also Locking Systems and Ancillary Devices.

All Nico Friction Hinges plus Shoot Bolts, Espagnolettes and Multi-Point Locking Devices are covered by the BBA Certification, which assures customers that every Nico product has been independently tested and awarded an Agrément Certificate.

The Nico manufacturing and quality control process has also been thoroughly inspected and evaluated, with regular monitoring taking place (twice a year) and a full and comprehensive reassessment every three years.

Certification available

BBA Certificates for all relevant products and systems are available for customers to demonstrate the quality and performance of their hardware.

Agrément Certificates are recognised by building control, government departments, architects, local authorities, specifiers and industry insurers like the NHBC.
