Masterspec unlocks BPIR compliance with Hallmark Group


Companies like Hallmark Group, a prominent player in the building materials industry, understand the significance of complying with the Building Product Information Requirements (BPIR) for their range of products and systems. Recently, Hallmark Group turned to Masterspec, a trusted name in compliance solutions, for guidance on their BPIR for fire doors. In this article, we explore how Hallmark Group and Masterspec have collaborated to ensure compliance and share knowledge. 

The Hallmark of Excellence in Doors

Hallmark Group is a manufacturer of interior doors and decorative products in New Zealand. They have been in business for over 30 years and are known for their products, excellent customer service, and commitment to sustainability. They offer a range of products, including fire doors and acoustic doors with a variety of finishing options such as paint and laminate. 

Understanding BPIR Compliance is Key

The Building Product Information Requirements (BPIR) is a regulatory framework introduced to lift the efficiency and quality of building work in the construction industry. It mandates that manufacturers and suppliers provide certain product information so that homeowners, builders, architects and specifiers can make informed decisions. This framework aims to streamline the process of identifying compliant building products, ensuring they meet the necessary standards.

Masterspec Holds the Door Through Compliance 

Recognising the complexities of BPIR compliance and the need for meticulous documentation, Hallmark Group sought the expertise of Masterspec. Masterspec, with its decades of experience and a team of industry experts is known for offering comprehensive construction information and compliance solutions specific to the needs of our product partners.

Jonathan Collins’ Testimonial: A Walkthrough into the Process

Jonathan Collins, from Hallmark Group, recently worked with Masterspec for a review of their BPIR documentation concerning fire doors. 

"Masterspec recently reviewed an early draft of our BPIR for fire doors. I found this process invaluable as it provided us with a report on where we met the BPIR content threshold and where we needed to make improvements. Their service was, as always, highly professional; they examined our documentation meticulously. We now have something we can use to enhance our content and knowledge across a range of products. Thanks to Masterspec’s input I’m confident we can meet BPIR requirements and can now focus on other priorities."

Compliance: The Key to Unlocked Opportunities

Hallmark Group's partnership with Masterspec opened doors to a knowledge and a more intentional approach to compliance. Compliance isn't just a box to tick; it's about ensuring transparency and ultimately customers' safety and peace of mind. Masterspec's input in BPIR compliance has also enhanced Hallmark Group's knowledge across their entire product range. This newfound expertise equips them to meet BPIR requirements for future products and systems.

A Doorway to Confidence and Success

The collaboration between Hallmark Group NZ and Masterspec illustrates the significance of compliance in the construction industry. By ensuring that their fire doors meet BPIR standards, Hallmark Group reaffirms their commitment to quality and safety. This partnership has not only opened doors to compliance assurance for the range they need immediate BPIR assistance with but also equipped Jonathan with the knowledge to apply the same for future products Hallmark Group will introduce to New Zealand.

With their compliance needs in capable hands, Hallmark Group can now shift their focus to other priorities.
