New UL Category Just For Aerosol Duct Sealingadmin
One giant leap forward – a new category has just been added to Underwriters Laboratory’s list of approved solutions for duct sealing. UL 1381 was just created specifically to cover aerosol duct sealing technology and provides contractors with a UL-certified alternative to older methods of sealing duct leaks – such as tape and mastic. When it comes to industry standards, the UL symbol is about as ubiquitous as it gets. For more than a century, the UL symbol (the trademark of Underwriters Laboratory) has assured consumers that a product meets stringent safety standards. UL Environment supports the growth and development of environmentally preferable products. And now, Aeroseal is part of the UL family. Along with several recent Aeroseal-related updates by other prestigious standards bodies such as ANSI/BPI (Building Performance Institute), NGBS (National Green Building Standard) and FEMP (Federal Energy Management Program), the creation of a new UL category specific to aerosol duct sealing is about as clear of an indicator that this game-changing approach to duct sealing is heading towards the mainstream.
