Why a UL Listing is Important
Since Underwriters Laboratories is a third-party, not-for-profit organization with no financial interest in the products they evaluate, you purchase in confidence and trust their seal of approval. Their results are a true indication of an item’s operational safety. UL actually goes the extra mile and does not stop testing products after their initial ratings. This ensures the ongoing safety of a product, which means their approval goes a long way in sustaining a safe environment.
UL also makes unannounced visits to manufacturers from time to time, too. This allows for a fair and accurate appraisal of a product and that safety standards are being met. If a listed item is no longer satisfying the UL requirements, then UL removes their listing. They have a bar that needs to be met. And so do the companies in New York, like us. So having this listing is a badge of honor. And one that we intend to work on keeping.
