Overview

Lightning protection systems must meet current requirements and be installed correctly to provide optimal protection.  UL examines lightning protection system components and completed installations for compliance with UL’s internationally recognized Standards for lightning protection systems, or other recognized national standards. UL Master Label® Certificates are issued for structures that fully comply with the selected standard.

Benefits

Our lightning protection inspection certificate indicates that a lightning protection system has been rigorously tested to provide maximum protection for building exteriors. UL lightning protection inspection certificates are issued within 48 hours of completion of the inspection or after variances are corrected.

For UL Listed lightning protection installers, UL provides confidence that the system has been installed in accordance with applicable recognized standards. UL Listed lightning protection installers may request inspections of lightning protection system installations through a dedicated, secure web portal. Additionally, there is a UL online directory for UL Listed lightning protection system installers.

Why UL

Specifying systems carrying a UL certificate helps to prevent damage and loss. The certificate provides lightning protection system buyers with the knowledge that they need to make informed choices when selecting equipment and an installer. The inspection certificate also demonstrates an uncompromising commitment to safety for insurers, local inspectors and commercial tenants.
