Products should be either “Certified” or “Labeled” depending on the process they went through. Our products have been approved according to North American Standards with CSA, a known and trustedmonogram assuring consumers that we have thoughtfully placed and tested individual parts inside the units for consumer safety. Companies such as CSA work with businesses, organizations and code authorities all around the world to help create and facilitate a safer, more sustainable world for people and for business. From testing & certifying products for safety & performance requirements, and also to develop leading-edge, consensus-based standards to support tomorrow’s technology. We chose CSA because they continually develop solutions that strive to promote safety and industry and society as they have been established as the Canadian Engineering Standards Association (CESA) since 1919.
Of the companies who sell lamps that contain components and parts some are listed with CSA or UL. Due to high quality standards these types of parts tend to be slightly more expensive, thus overall, the lamps are expensive as well. Consumer’s can be assured that there safety has been taken into consideration and held with high regard by companies who have taken this step. Safety plays an important role in achieving safe, code compliant installations.
Some companies are using ‘generic’ parts for some of the components and parts in their led lamps which contribute to non compliance of certifications and of which that do not pass strict procedures according to North American Standards by companies such as CSA, UL or Intertek . Please note that some of these items include but are not limited to powers supplies, fans, wires, lamp beads, socket switches, LED brackets and the LEDs themselves. In simple terms, since some of the parts have not been tested and listed with CSA/UL these solid state grow lights do not meet standards set out to meet the consumer’s needs regarding safety and quality assurance according to the national standards association of Canada or America. This also indicates that the unauthorized or non-certified products may not hold an ethical safety rating. In other words, the components may not be made of standardized quality therefore the integrity of your purchase may be diminished. Buyer beware, use at own risk!
