Intertek's BEAB Care Mark will prove that your product complies with additional safety and performance criteria for use in hospitals and other care establishments.
The BEAB Care Mark demonstrates that water heater products comply with additional requirements to existing safety standards which take into account the needs of people in care situations, such as the elderly and people with disabilities. For vulnerable members of the population, who may have limited maneuverability or ability to react quickly to changing situations, the need for closer control of outlet water temperatures has been clearly identified.
A BEAB Care Mark approved product will ensure stable outlet water temperatures under normal supply variations. In addition, the product will protect from scalding under rapid and abnormal supply variations, without adjustment by the user. The BEAB Care Mark is only applied to products that have existing BEAB Approval and comply with the additional safety and performance test schedules. Successful applicants are therefore awarded both the BEAB Approved Mark as well as the 'BEAB Care' mark to display on their product.
BEAB Care Mark has been developed in recognition of the additional performance requirements of certain products within the care industry, including:
- Care homes
- Residential Care
