Grana faucets meet the requirements of European standards both in Finland and elsewhere in Europe. The Grana faucets are tested for sound levels, water flows, durability and heavy metal content, lead and cadmium. All testing, including quality control, is fully responsible for a third party. All our tests are carried out by two Finnish laboratories accredited by Finas (www.finas.fi), either by VTT (www.vtt.fi) or by the engineering office Zenner (www.zenner.fi).
All GRANA-faucets will go through the demanding Nordic Approval Scheme. Testing will include structural stability and suitability for contact with drinking water. GRANA faucets comply not only with EU Regulations, but also with national Nordic Building Regulations. The Finnish STF certificates can be found here (currently available only in Finnish. (Kitchen Faucets PDF 192 KB). (Basin Faucets PDF 192 KB).
Additional testing reports for sound levels, water flow, durability and for the content of heavy metals such as lead and cadmium can be found here. The test documents are currently available in Finnish only but you can easily check the results from the charts.
