(Chartered Institute of Environmental Health)

Pedigree Pens (FirmFix) were one of the original sponsors of the CIEH Model Licence Committee.

This committee decided that all boarding accommodation must be constructed to meet minimum standards.
They produced guidelines which every UK local authority & their local boarding establishments should adhere to.
You can download a copy of the guidelines online.

Our materials – Safety & Hygiene :

Consequently, all our materials are impervious, thus minimising the risk of the spread of feline diseases.

Materials used include:

  • PVCu framework
  • insulated high gloss panelling
  • safety glass
  • multi-wall heat reflective polycarbonate roofing
  • rigid 1″ square galvanised steel mesh for extra strength & security

The use of these materials eliminates the need for regular treatment. The pens cannot rot, are easy to wipe clean & are very secure. View our Materials Comparison page for further information.

Perhaps the most important feature of PVCu is that it is self-extinguishing should it be exposed to fire.
