To ensure electrical safety, our products are tested and approved by Underwriters Laboratory (UL) and Electrical Safety (ETL). These test documents are available for consumers to assess and compare products using accurate third-party data as opposed to manufacturer-supplied marketing materials.
UL and ETL
UL8800 is a set of safety requirements maintained by UL to be used when evaluating the suitability of luminaires and all included accessories for indoor cultivation applications. The specifier should look for this UL safety mark before purchasing this type of equipment.
The Design Lights Consortium (DLC) is an independent certification body that most utilities will look to before considering any rebates to owners of grow facilities. Before putting a manufacturer on their Qualified Products List (QPL), they are required to meet certain performance and efficacy criteria.
SpecGrade LED warrants its light emitting diode (LED) products (“SpecGrade Lights”) to be free from defects in material and workmanship (the “Limited Warranty”) for a period of 10 years on the LED arrays and seven years on the drivers.
An IP rating is a two-digit international standard used to rate the level of protection against liquid and solid ingress. It does not address UV protection standards.
The first digit indicates the level of protection that the enclosure provides against access to hazardous components (e.g., electrical conductors, moving parts) and the ingress of solid foreign objects or particles such as dust. The second digit indicates the level of protection of the equipment inside the enclosure against water ingress.
