Boon Edam Inc., a pioneer in security entrances and architectural revolving doors, announced that in alignment with their ongoing policy to certify products to North American standards, the Trilock 3-arm tripod turnstile models have been tested and certified to conform with UL (United Laboratories) Standard 294 and CAN/ULC S319 for Canada.
UL Standard 294 and CAN/ULC S319 (the harmonised standard in Canada) are the prevalent industry standards for ensuring the safe operation of access control equipment in the United States and Canada. While all of Boon Edam’s products currently 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 their customers.
