Want to learn more about the legal requirements for safety signage and lighting specifications in order to pass your safety inspection? No? We don’t blame you! Good news, SEG Systems has done all of the required safety research, training and certifications, so that you can focus on what matters most, your brand!
Should you be using UL Certified Products?
Why should you care about working with a UL Certified Manufacturer? Products with a UL certification mark are recognized by field inspectors as a seal of approval for safety. They know that these products have been through the required tests and inspections necessary to deem them safe.
Companies that use non-certified commercial displays run the risk of developing a bad reputation, lawsuits, product recalls, and delayed openings, leading to unexpectedly high costs for a brand. Prepare for the future by partnering with SEG Systems, a manufacturer that can guarantee safety.
"Understanding the speed of retail, UL has developed this innovative program to meet the tight timeframes of manufacturers while simultaneously leveraging the same rigorous testing and certification standards to which we are committed to ensure the safety of commercial displays. We applaud SEG Systems on their commitment to delivering safe frames and displays to retail"
UL is a global safety science company with more than a century of expertise in innovative safety solutions including certifications, programs, and products. SEG Systems has partnered with the Underwriters Laboratory to become the only manufacturer with both UL 48 and UL 962 certifications. These programs have developed norms and guidelines that have harmonized the design and manufacture of commercial displays, electric signs, and lighting that guarantee to operate safely.
In-house UL Testing Capabilities
The engineering team or ‘Nerd Herd’ at SEG Systems are all certified to conduct the extensive tests required by UL to deem a product safe. Our in-house capability to test and apply a UL mark to all products set us apart from our competitors.
Fire tests are used to determine how difficult it is to start a fire and see how quickly the product would burn.
Electrical and grounding tests can tell us if the unit is grounded properly and doesn’t present a shock hazard.
Situational tests such as sudden impact or climbing are used to ensure there is no tipping or collapsing hazards.
Loading tests are completed to evaluate the ability of the unit to hold the intended load/weight.
Stability tests are general tests to determine the strength and structural build of the display.
