High quality performance testing

Quality & Testing

A.K.G. pipes, profiles and fittings undergo extensive testing and inspection in its manufacturing facilities. A.K.G.’s authenticity lies in its quality that is unmatched in the industry. 

The state-of-the-art extrusion/moulding equipment and computerized material handling system ensure consistency in the quality of its products. Quality control testing guarantees that every product you install will perform in the application.

In A.K.G. quality policy has been framed for and followed at every level of the organization. Products are continually tested in its quality control laboratory to ensure conformance with BIS, DIN, ASTM & CE standards.
