The Garage Doors Plan Renove for the Community of Madrid comes into effect

The Garage Doors Plan Renove for the Community of Madrid comes into effect this September. Fimpa,the National Federation of Manufacturers, Installers and Maintainers of Doors and Automatic Systems, will sign an agreement with the Community of Madrid to set the plan in motion within the next few weeks.

The purpose of this Plan Renove for Garage Doors is to improve safety and enable energy savings by replacing doors without the CE mark, improving their mechanical features and installing the necessary security measures.

Motorised doors are considered machines, and since 1 January 1995 they have been required to comply with essential security requirements and have the CE marking and CE declaration of conformity. An automatic door without the CE marking does not guarantee the security requirements of this type of equipment.

Owners whose garage doors were installed before 1 January 1995 will be able to benefit from this PlanRenove. All replacements made between 1 January 2016 and 31 December 2016 may benefit from these grants while funds are still available.

The grant consists of €120 per application, to a limit of 25% of the eligible cost. In addition, installation companies signing up for this Plan Renove will give consumers €200 off the work and equipment necessary to award the CE mark to the modified door. This discount is only available if the customer signs a service contract for a minimum of three years, to ensure that the garage door is correctly maintained in compliance with UNE 85635.
