Renewable energy has created new technical challenges for code authorities, designers and installers. Fortunately UL has developed solutions that addresses these challenges with research, standards development, certifications and education.
UL plays an important role in testing and certification of fire sprinklers to determine that fire sprinkler systems operate as intended during a fire. Essential components of fire sprinkler systems, such as sprinklers and piping, are required to undergo comprehensive evaluations to verify that they meet rigorous nationally recognized standards.
Currently features more than 40,000 products, SPOT can help identify products by sustainable attributes, MasterFormat product codes and building rating system credits such as LEED v4 and the WELL Building Standard™.
Products that have achieved UL GREENGUARD Certification are scientifically proven to meet some of the world’s most rigorous, third-party chemical emissions standards—helping reduce indoor air pollution and the risk of chemical exposure while aiding in the creation of healthier indoor environments.
