UL provides a wide range of services that code authorities, architects, specifiers and installers can use to enhance their knowledge, resolve problems and provide safe and sustainable installations.
UL Field Evaluations bridge the gap between uncertified equipment and a code compliant installation. Our skilled staff are fast, thorough and trustworthy, and our services meet the needs of both the owner and code authorities.
Architects, contractors and code authorities rely on the UL Fire Resistance Directories as the source document for their designs. Other suites of product directories and publications are also available.
UL's qualified contractor programs provide architects and code authorities a means to identify firestop and spray applied fireproofing contractors that comply with the UL’s rigorous qualified contractor program requirements.
UL certifications and UL Evaluation Reports provide the technical foundation relied upon by architects, designers, contractors and code authorities to provide safe, code compliant installations.
An important part of designing and building a safe, code compliant structure is specifying and utilizing equipment, materials, and assemblies that have been evaluated to nationally recognized safety standards.
Code authorities who enforce NFPA 72 requirements and require certain fire alarms in their jurisdictions to be covered by a UL certificate have experienced overall increased system reliability and a reduction of nuisance alarms.
Safe and sustainable installations are often based on the proper use of UL certifications and services. Being informed of the latest UL developments, and being able to contact our Architectural Services experts with questions can help you achieve these goals. Contacting us when you want, in a manner that you prefer has never been easier.
