Quality and Environment


To ensure a uniform quality for run-in of new products we practise a very careful proces and quality control.

From the raw material and the semi-finished products are received on PN Hardware till the finished product is dispatched to the customer an in-process inspection is carried out.

Sequential calibration of the measuring and control equipment is carried out by the quality department. In this way the product quality is ensured as we work with accuracies as low as 10 micron, however always based on the performance requirement to every single product.

This uniform high quality ensures solutions functioning to the optimum effect for both the DIY market and for our industry customers’ production, resulting in operational reliability.


In 1992 PN Hardware achieved certification according to the standard DS/EN ISO 9001 (quality management) and in 2004 we achieved environmental certification according to the standard DS/EN ISO 14001.).
