A UL (Underwriters Laboratories) panel building shop is an industrial facility that is certified to produce and assemble electrical control panels according to the safety and performance standards set by UL. Here are some of the reasons why having a UL panel building shop is important:
- Compliance with safety standards: UL is a globally recognized safety certification organization that sets rigorous safety standards for electrical equipment and components. Building electrical control panels in compliance with UL standards ensures that the panels are safe to use and meet regulatory requirements.
- Risk reduction: Electrical panels that do not meet safety standards can pose significant risks to personnel, equipment, and facilities. In the event of an electrical hazard, compliance with UL standards can limit the risks and reduce the likelihood of injuries, property damage, and downtime.
- Quality assurance: UL certification requires strict adherence to manufacturing processes and quality control measures. This ensures that every panel built in a UL panel building shop meets the same high standards for quality, reliability, and durability.
- Enhanced marketability: UL certification is recognized and respected worldwide, and having a UL panel building shop can provide a competitive edge for companies operating in the electrical equipment and control panel industry.
- Customer confidence: Customers often require assurance that the electrical equipment they purchase meets safety standards. UL certification provides this assurance, and having a UL panel building shop can increase customer confidence in a company’s products and services.
In summary, having a UL panel building shop is essential for companies involved in the design, manufacture, and assembly of electrical control panels. Compliance with UL standards ensures safety, reduces risk, enhances quality, and increases marketability and customer confidence.
SRS has UL Panel certification for UL508A / cUL 508A and is also ISO 9001 certified. We are also well versed in Hazardous rated panels Explosion proof rates or intrinsically safe.
Whether your needs are high the OEM panels, custom control panels, or SRS will assist in your needs.
UL’s safety Marks are the most credible and sought-after certification marks in North America. When regulators, specifiers and end-product certifiers see the familiar UL Mark, they are confident that the panel has met the UL Panel certification requirements.
Why choose UL for your industrial control panel needs?
Increase your competitive advantage with a UL Panel
Offer your customers UL-certified general use, industrial machinery, elevator control, service equipment, air conditioning and refrigeration equipment, fountain control, irrigation equipment, crane and flame control, and marine use panels and bid on jobs that specify UL-certified ICPs.
Cover all requirements of the UL Panel
UL Marks approvals confirm that proper component usage, enclosure environmental ratings, wiring and motor protection, and safety markings. This is needed to conform to the National Electrical Code (NEC) and Canadian Electrical Code (CEC) are met.
Greater efficiency of the UL Panel
Eliminate red-tagged panels at the job site, along with the resulting delays and extra costs.
Widespread acceptance of the UL Panel
Benefit from the widespread acceptance of the UL Mark by regulatory authorities in every jurisdiction in the United States and Canada.
Increased component sourcing with a UL Panel
UL and CSA International have a formal component acceptance agreement. Hence, this permits the acceptance of specific components for use in end products, including industrial control panels. SRS’s customers now have flexibility when sourcing components.
CSA-certified components are accepted in UL-certified panels in addition to UL-certified components already permitted.
The UL Mark meets requirements for applications such as general use, industrial machinery, elevator control, service equipment, air conditioning and refrigeration equipment, fountain control, irrigation equipment, crane and flame control, and finally marine use.
