Does anyone get a UL Certificate for a new commercial building anymore? What are the benefits?
Did not know they did one for an entire building.
If you are referring to a UL Fire alarm certificate, the answer is yes. I work in several jurisdictions that require a UL certificate in any fire alarm that is required to be installed per the building code. This includes systems that are only sprinkler monitoring systems. The benefits to the building owner are that it ensures the system is installed by a competent installer that is listed by UL, monitored by UL listed monitoring center that complies with UL 827 and is maintained and inspected by a competent UL listed service company. The benefit to the AHJ are the same as to the building owner and ensures the AHJ that the system will be maintained, not installed and forgotten, leading to false alarms. The benefits to the alarm company are the contract dollars required to maintain the system.
