Quality and compliance

Barton Engineering is a well-established leader in the supply and manufacture of premium quality cable management products that are compliant to the highest UK and international standards.

ISO 9001

Liberty Precision Tubes Ltd ISO 9001:2015 Quality Management System covers the manufacture and supply of all Barton products, including trunking, conduit & accessories, electrical enclosures, flexible conduits & adaptors and switch & socket boxes.

The equivalent quality system applies to all Barton approved suppliers and sub-contractors, who are regularly audited to ensure their products comply with the same exacting standards.

The ISO 9001 Quality Management System is independently approved by the BSI Group, the UK based organisation managing international standards across the globe.

BS 4568, BSEN 50086 and BSEN 61386

All Barton cable management products are fully inspected at the time of manufacture for compliance to the above standards. Random samples from production are regularly subjected to independent testing by UKAS* approved laboratories.

BS 4568 (also known as BSEN 50086 and BSEN 61386) is a manufacturer’s standard, which includes dimensions and tolerances and is the highest benchmark of quality assurance – making it straight forward to produce and check using basic inspection equipment available in a workshop or construction site.

Barton cable management products are dual certified to BS 4568 and BSEN 61386.

*UKAS – The United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS) is the national accreditation body for the United Kingdom, appointed by government, to assess organisations that provide certification, testing, inspection and calibration services (https://www.ukas.com).
