Battery-powered OmniFlex systems receive UL and CSA Certification
Kaivac's lithium-ion battery-powered OmniFlex cleaning systems have been certified and found to meet all applicable United Laboratories and Canadian Standards Association safety requirements, following testing by Intertek, an independent, nationally recognised testing laboratory.
As a result, the OmniFlex systems now have the honour of bearing the ETL-C mark on all machines as well as on all related information and marketing materials.
Intertek is officially authorised by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration
to test products for compliance to product safety standards. The ETL-C mark is accepted by all authorities having jurisdiction and code officials throughout North America.
Tom Morrison, vice president of marketing for Kaivac, tells us that effective immediately, all battery powered OmniFlex systems shipped in North America will be labeled with the ETL-C mark.
"In addition, current owners of OmniFlex cleaning systems may bring an existing system into UL/CSA compliance," he says. "They can do this by purchasing the ETL-C labeled OmniFlex Battery Retro Kit directly from Kaivac or through a Kaivac distributor."
Tom adds that the new certification will not impact the pricing of these machines, which when used for floorcare, can cost some two-thirds less than traditional floor machines.
