UL Warns of Counterfeit UL Marks on Fire Sprinklers
Have you recently had a fire sprinkler system installed in your building? Underwriters Laboratories (UL) has released a statement notifying distributors, contractors, fire departments, regulatory agencies, and authorities having jurisdiction that a certain fire sprinkler recently introduced to the market bears a counterfeit UL Mark for the United States and Canada. The sprinkler was not manufactured by Nanjing Fire Protection Technology Co Ltd, and the sprinkler head was not manufactured by Job, GmbH.
The fire sprinkler has not been evaluated by UL to the appropriate standards for safety. As a result, it is unknown whether the sprinkler complies with any safety requirements.
The counterfeit sprinkler is Model NX005, and can be identified by “NX” or “C-I” markings on the wrench boss of the fire sprinkler frame. It may also have model NX005 on the sprinkler deflector. Sprinklers manufactured by Nanjing Fire Protection Technology Co Ltd that are authorized to bear the UL Mark do not have “NX” and “C-I” marking on the wrench boss.
