These LED grow lights are safety certified and fit for a commercial grow operation. Each of these grow lights features either an industry standard UL or ETL listing and is guaranteed to keep your grow operation safety compliant.
What does it mean to be UL or ETL Listed?
UL listed lighting and ETL lighting certifications are provided by established industry safety testers. They ensure that products will function safely when exposed to water, humidity, dust, electrical surges, etc.
It's important to note that this is an elected procedure that the manufacturer must pay for. If a light isn't ETL or UL listed that doesn’t mean it isn't safe. But if you get a light that is, then you know it definitely passes the safety standards.
When Should I Buy a UL or ETL Listed LED Grow Light?
If you’re growing for personal use and it’s just a hobby, then ensuring you’re using either ETL or UL listed lighting might not be very important to you. But for commercial growers, it should definitely be a high priority!
In many cases it is required by the law that your commercial grow lights are safety listed. Otherwise, you are out of compliance and could get smacked with a fine. Also, for larger operations with many lights in an environment with electricity and water very close together, you're going to want to be sure you're using commercial grow lights that are safe for you and your coworkers.
