Kielsteg elements have proven themselves in a large number of projects across the EU and beyond especially as a way of creating large clear spans and achieving high flexibility of use of interior spaces in buildings. This was possible thanks to good cooperation with a sales network of competent local designers and builders, now with partners in six countries. To further strengthen Kielsteg in regional and international markets, it became important to obtain a European Technical Approval for the technology. Following almost three years of work with MPA Stuttgart as the testing centre managaing the process, the ETA has now been issued by DIBt Berlin. For us and our partners in Austria, Belgium, Switzerland, Germany, Italy, and Norway this is a step up to the next level. In the member states of the EU, the manufacturing and use of Kielsteg is now regulated by the European Technical Assessment which is the basis of the CE label.
