Gamle Mursten Tech is the first in Denmark – and in Europe – to offer CE marking of old bricks
CE marking of used bricks at GM Tech is your guarantee that the bricks are of top quality. To obtain the mark, the bricks must be tested for pressure, frost and water absorption with satisfactory results.
Gamle Mursten ApS has worked hard to get an EAD, an ETA and a so-called declaration of conformity, which together can be equated to a harmonised standard. And we are the first company in Denmark that can both sell and market old bricks with proven performance and quality.
Until a few years ago, there were no recycled products that could be CE marked. Old bricks from demolitions could not obtain the mark because they were produced before the CE system was introduced and before there was a harmonised standard.
Gamle Mursten Tech takes brick samples from your old buildings and carries out tests for pressure, frost, water absorption and pore filling, which reveal whether the bricks meet the quality requirements of CE marking.
