What Does ‘UL Listed’ Mean?
The UL Listing is a rating that certifies a product has been tested by Underwriter’s Laboratories to meet certain safety standards. Underwriter’s Laboratories is the leader in U.S. product safety and certification. The UL Listing is found on the majority of our products, provides the confidence that the product is safe for use, and is often a requirement in many installations. In addition, most welded floor standing Middle Atlantic. Products enclosures have a UL Listed 2,500 lb. weight capacity, ensuring that they can safely protect critical electronic systems. Products with UL Listings that relate to weight ratings have been tested to four times
the published capacity.
What Does ‘Seismic Certified’ Mean?
Seismic certification ensures that the essential equipment housed in the enclosure can survive a seismic event. This is critical in the many seismic areas throughout the world, and is often a requirement in other installations as well. Most welded, floor standing Middle Atlantic Products enclosures are seismic certified at no extra charge, which ensures that they provide the structural integrity needed for your installation to meet UBC, CBC, IBC, ASCE and NFPA standards.
