Ecodesign: Barkell’s stance

Barkell’s position on the Ecodesign Directive


As a British Manufacturer, we are driven by quality and efficiency at every stage of our research, development and manufacturing process. We meet the challenges of regulatory changes head on and innovatively.

The Ecodesign Directive is a ‘game changer’.

Introduced as part of the European framework to help the European Union (EU) achieve its 20-20-20 target for 20% energy efficiency improvement and 20% lower carbon emissions target, all to be realised by 2020.

All our ongoing products and systems will be designed to meet current and future Ecodesign regulations regarding energy efficiency and carbon emissions. We recognise that providing our customers with energy efficient solutions is a critical sustainable development opportunity for us all.

Barkell is committed to environmental responsibility and limiting the environmental impact of our units. For some, less proactive manufacturers, the Ecodesign Directive will cause some sizable headaches. For Barkell, it is a proposition we welcome and relish.


Support throughout Ecodesign compliance


Barkell, as a British Manufacturer, is committed to limiting the environmental impact of its products. We strive to reduce energy consumption and carbon emissions. With this ethos, we are committed to working with you to ensure Ecodesign Directive conformity and deliver the associated benefits of compliance.

We have also updated our selection software to handle the 2018 Ecodesign requirements and automatically check compliance of units with the ErP.  When you receive a quotation from Barkell the ErP related information will already be clearly displayed on the documents provided.
