Middle Atlantic Products is the latest manufacturer to be unveiled as a voting member of UL's Standard Technical Panel (STP) for introducing UL 2416.

Middle Atlantic will assist in developing future standards for equipment deployed in cabinets, enclosures and rack systems as part of the panel. UL 2416 will be the first dedicated standard to address the safety of cabinets, racks, and enclosures intended to power, protect, heat, cool, or otherwise support AV, IT, telecommunications, and similar equipment in AV industry.

Within UL STP 2416, the standards body will develop standards to assess, measure, and validate the safety and performance of infrastructure products – currently evaluated using solely the UL 1678 standard.

“We are committed to continuous improvement to meet industry safety standards for our products," said Angelo Cacciatore, regulatory compliance and safety professional at Middle Atlantic Products. "Being part of the technical panel for the UL 2416 standard, we are able to apply our expertise in the area of equipment mounting and collaborate with other stakeholders in the standards development process. As a result, integrators will have a safety benchmark for the products they select and install."
