That’s why we made it such a high priority to have not just some, but all of our products tested – and to ensure that each one meets or exceeds the most rigorous testing criteria being conducted in our field today.
Clayton, DE (Vocus) September 25, 2007
Eagle Foodservice Equipment announces that its entire product line has been certified to meet Underwriters Laboratories’ new rigorous UL 197 Rev 9 standards for commercial kitchen equipment. Among the Eagle products tested and certified include Panco® cook-and-hold cabinets, Panco® transport systems, chef preparation stations, heated drawers, and the full range of Red Hots® countertop cooking and warming equipment, among others.
The UL 197 Rev 9 standard combines the National Electric Code (NEC) and National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) standards for commercial kitchen equipment – thereby making it the most challenging one for today’s product manufacturers to meet. Products that comply with the very latest UL 197 standards mean that customers can use those products with the greatest level of assurance that the equipment has been properly designed to protect against workplace injury, loss of life, and property damage.
Underwriters Laboratories (UL) is one of the nation’s oldest and best-known independent testing firms. Established in 1894 as a not-for-profit, non-governmental organization to help reduce the incidence of injuries, loss of life and property damage due to faulty equipment design, UL scientifically investigates and tests thousands of products, materials and systems every year to evaluate electric, fire and casualty hazards. The UL 197 standard for commercial kitchen equipment is just one of nearly three dozen categories in six major product groups that are evaluated by the organization.
Eagle was one of the first manufacturers to obtain UL 197 Rev 9 certification for its entire foodservice equipment line. “We believe it’s best for our customers to be able to select products with complete confidence that they’re in compliance with the very latest ,” Larry McAllister, president, explained. “That’s why we made it such a high priority to have not just some, but all of our products tested – and to ensure that each one meets or exceeds the most rigorous testing criteria being conducted in our field today.”
