Product Stability (50 lbs.) Verified
Products are evaluated to stability requirements of ASTM F2057-2019. Testing consists of hanging a 50 lb. weight from a single open drawer/door and opening all drawers and doors simultaneously. Units must remain stable and not tip over during the testing. Products are required to be tested every 12 months. Critical design attributes will be documented for annual Factory surveillance program. All performance critical design attributes or components will be documented including pictures of the products. These critical design attributes include but are not limited to dimensions, weight, , drawer slide length, and general construction attributes such as number of drawers or doors. If critical design attributes are changed, testing must be repeated to demonstrate product meets stability requirements of ASTM F2057-2019 are still met. All Factory locations that apply the UL Verification Mark will be visited by a UL Field Engineer once per year to ensure: 1) Proper use of UL Verification Mark 2) Product attributes are same as tested units 3) Repeat stability testing on selected units 4) Record keeping and documentation that shows which products have been tested at UL Verified test sites and what products are scheduled to be tested 5) On-going communication between test lab and factory location on any changes in test results and UL Verification Mark eligibility. 6) MFR is following testing, manufacturing and shipment schedule for new products as developed by UL and Supplier.
