Electrical Safety Testing

Electrical safety testing ensures safe operating standards.

To ensure safe operating standards, any product that uses electricity, regardless of its voltage, must go through a process of electrical safety testing by an accredited body.

Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratories

In the United States, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has designated certain third-party agencies as Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratories (NRTL). These facilities have been approved to test systems and products for certifications such as UL, VDE, ETL, CSA, TUV, and IEC. In order to receive a certification, these systems or products must pass various safety tests for their intended application.

Many of Urban Solar’s lighting solutions are independently tested and certified by Underwriters Laboratories (UL). Our customers can confidently implement their solutions with the knowledge that they have been approved by a leading nationally recognized testing laboratory, ensuring both their safety and quality.
