Gunnebo Entrance Control Inc. introduced the SpeedStile FLs into the US market in 2016, and it quickly became the 2nd largest product line assembled in the the US operations manufacturing facility in Benicia, CA. Demand for the product, due to its functionality, look, and price point, sky-rocketed in 2017 with over 100% increase from the previous year. Introducing UL 2593 to the SpeedStile FLs to supplement increased access and integration options, swinging glass panels up to 6’ high, and customer specific material finishes was #1 on Gunnebo’s priority list for 2018.
“2018 has been an investment year here at Gunnebo Entrance Control Inc.”, writes Chris Wheeler, VP of Operations. “We have listened to our customers in the market place, making multiple personnel additions, introducing new products and features to our portfolio, but we haven’t stopped there. The North American UL 2593 certification was an important initiative for us this year.”
All SpeedStile FLs orders shipping from Gunnebo from January 1st 2019 onward will carry the UL 2593 certification.
UL continues to support the access systems industry’s drive to produce safer, quality products with certification to UL 2593, UL 325, and CSA C22.2 No. 247 for North America. They can also verify compliance with IEC and other global and regional safety regulations. Their services continue to support manufacturers and installers in managing risk, facilitating fast access to the world markets, and providing a widely recognized and trusted differentiator, the UL Mark.
