In house production
All telescopisch tribunes and mobile telescopic tribunes are produced in our production facility in Oudenaarde, Belgium.
Our products are high valued and therefore we offer our clients an extended guarantee program to ensure a flawless use. When intervention is required we have a quick response ratio to get you up and running into time.
Not one building is 100% similar and the demands and wishes of the user does not always meet the budget that is foreseen by the client. COS offers for every project a custom made solution with a sharp eye on wishes, demands, budget and regulation.
Every technical design is tested in advance and afterwards according the European Standard for spectator facilities EN13200 1,3, 4 and 5. The testing is done by our own engineers and afterwards by a independent testing agency.
The full production process from first drawing and production to the day of completion is certified according EN1090. With completion an as-built file is handed to the client with a Declaration of Performance.
EN1090 Factory Production Control
From 1 July 2014, all steel construction parts with load-bearing properties will be subjected to the EN 1090 standard. From that date on companies who bring steel constructions on the European market must issue a CE declaration on the manufactured products. From then on, steel constructions may no longer be delivered without a CE declaration, issued only by a certified company.
With the development and market introduction of the telescopic stand with push-chain drive, COS has laid the foundation for the continuous pursuit of sustainable solutions in our industry.
In addition to our sustainable product solutions, we also – and systematically since the UN's structural formulation – have been devoting great importance to our broader role in sustainable transformation. Not only are we aware of the idea, but we also have the sectors for which we are active, their own objectives, and thereby facilitate their sustainability objectives.
We yearly participate in several important trade fairs and and seminars in The Netherlands, Belgium and France. We participate during CUE Rotterdam, a two-yearly meeting for professionals in theatre branche; ISB the important annual congress for Flanders Sport professionals, architects and decision makers; and JTSE one of the leading trade fairs in Paris for theatre branche.
