Boon Edam Inc. has announced that as part of a continuous policy to certify products to North American standards, the Speedlane Swing and Open optical turnstiles have been tested and certified to conform with UL standards 325 and 2593, and CSA 22.2 for Canada.
UL Standards 325 and 2593, as well as CSA C22.2 (the harmonized standard in Canada) are industry standards for ensuring the safe operation of doors, turnstiles, gates and access control equipment in the U.S. and Canada. While all of Boon Edam’s products conform to CE (the European Union standard of safety and operation), the company continues to invest in UL certification for all door and turnstile products sold in the Americas to align with North American standards and ultimately streamline installation for its customers.
The Lifeline Swing and Open were launched initially in Europe in January 2015 and, after their launch in the Americas in March of the same year, it became a top seller due to its design, functionality and energy-savings. The Speedlane Swing features slim cabinets (only four inches wide), ideal for downtown lobbies where space is at a premium.
“Today’s business climate places a premium on risk mitigation and Boon Edam has always emphasized safety around the globe,” says Mark Borto, CEO of Boon Edam Inc. “We know field testing for UL is not always practical for our clients, so we continue to invest in UL certifications as new products are launched. By getting our products certified, we can assure our North American customers that a 3rd-party has rigorously tested our products and confirmed that they operate in a safe and predictable manner at any location.”
The Lifeline turnstiles were tested by UL (United Laboratories), which was founded in 1894 and helps companies demonstrate safety and confirm compliance. Some of the services offered by UL include inspection; advisory services; education and training; testing; auditing and analytics; certification software solutions; and marketing claim verification.
