As a brand-name manufacturer, certifications are indispensable for us. Because they ensure that we observe and fulfil the expectations and requirements that we demand of ourselves. And furthermore, they strengthen the trust that our customers, retailers and suppliers have in our work.

Design is orientation. Design is differentiation. Design makes for strong brands – and successful companies. As the design and brand authority of Germany, the German Design Council aims to strengthen the understanding of design for the general public, alongside supporting companies in all aspects relating to their brand and design development.
rational is one of the first kitchen manufacturers to have been awarded the "Golden M", quite possibly Europe's most important quality mark. The Deutsche Gütegemeinschaft Möbel e.V.“ (German Quality Assurance Association) only awards the "Golden M" to furniture which has passed extensive and stringent testing. The furniture must be sturdy, safe, durable and well made and may not contain any substances that could pose a health threat. This gives the kitchen consumer the assurance that the furniture being purchased is of the best possible quality and has been reliably tested and approved as being non-harmful to health.
The Institute for Product Testing and Quality Control, the LGA Bavaria/Germany, has conducted tests on all the rational furniture ranges and certified that in terms of construction and technical equipment all the safety requirements have been met. In recognition of this, rational has been awarded the GS safety mark.
rational einbauküchen GmbH applies a Quality Management System according to DIN EN ISO 9001:2008.
