Why Should You Choose a UL Listed Panel Fabricator?

UL is the largest and most widely known Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratory (NRTL) in the US. Jeff White, Director of Manufacturing at Interstates, says, We apply UL-508A standards to the control panels we build so they meet safety requirements and to ensure the panels will be accepted by local inspectors or authorities having jurisdiction.” 

Interstates fabricates panels with the guidance of an experienced engineering team that selects UL-listed or -recognized components for each type of installation. This process ensures Interstates meets safety needs, utilizes proper protection techniques and makes sure panels are correctly rated for specific electrical installations. 

White says clients generally prefer a customized installation. “Our team consults with the client to truly understand their needs, and then we engineer the best panel solution for that installation. We can build according to existing design and specifications, or we can come up with a solution for you. Every panel we fabricate includes quality, detailed drawing documentation to support the fabrication and wiring of the panels. This way, clients have drawings to assist them with maintenance and troubleshooting needs down the road,” he says.  

Benefits of Choosing Interstates

There are many benefits to choosing to work with one of Interstates’ UL Listed Certified panel shops, some of which include: 

  • Custom installations. Panel Shop Manager Jeff Jansen says that Interstates creates UL-508A panels with a top rack and a false bottom. “This increases the capacity of wire entering the panel from the top and maintains a clean-looking and manageable panel,” he says.  
  • Experienced electricians and engineers. “Our team uses experience to take care of the details in these panels, including features that provide a top-quality installation,” says White. 
  • Quality and peace of mind. Having this third-party verification means that clients benefit from the stringent safety recommendations set by UL. It gives them peace of mind to know that we have gone through the process to get certified. They know they are dealing with a quality shop,” says Snyder.
