GeRon® standards

All products of GeRon® are manufactured and tested in strict accordance to EN 1492-1, EN 1492-2, EN 12195-2 and DIN 60005. Our quality products in the standard series are also marked with the "GS"label, meaning tested safety of the professional and governmental associations, called Berufsgenossenschaften (government safety organization). 

All our products are signed with „Made in Germany“ and we carry a certified quality management system according to the European standard DIN EN ISO 9001:2015, of course.

Our model for success is the highest quality standards, which the selection of the raw material for the individual yarns must already meet before processing.

All primary materials used by us are sourced exclusively from tested and certified suppliers. All raw materials are subjected to an additional technical inspection before processing.

On request, GeRon® will issue you with acceptance inspection certificates in accordance with EN 10204 in any variant - but possibly subject to a charge.

By arrangement, GeRon® will inspect your products (Round Slings, Hoisting Belts and Lashing Straps) and carry out a repair after a careful performance audit.
