DESIGN ENGINEERS were contracted by LANCOM COMMERCIAL to furnish a comprehensive PS1 package service specifically tailored for windows and joinery. This engagement aimed to fortify LANCOM COMMERCIAL's joinery design, ensuring its alignment with structural and durability performance requirements through the utilization of the verification method code compliance pathway. In the course of this collaboration, DESIGN ENGINEERS meticulously conducted a test report assessment to substantiate that the proposed joinery systems adhere to the stipulated code requirements, encompassing structural integrity, durability, and weathertightness.

Furthermore, DESIGN ENGINEERS played a pivotal role in delivering precise calculations to verify the adequacy of frame members, perimeter fixings, and brackets. This involved a meticulous selection of appropriate products from various suppliers to ensure structural soundness. Through these comprehensive measures, DESIGN ENGINEERS contributed to the seamless integration of LANCOM COMMERCIAL's joinery design, aligning it with industry standards and regulatory compliance.
