STERLING, Va. — SkyBitz has been awarded the Underwriters Laboratories (UL) 913 Intrinsically Safe Apparatus and Associated Apparatus Compliance for its signature GLS 210 trailer tracking hardware.
This certification is the highest qualification necessary to track dangerous shipments that have ignitable concentrations of flammable gases, vapors or liquids over road, rail or barge.
“The universally recognized UL 913 compliancy enables our customers who transport HazMat to state with certainty to their customers that every component in our GLS 210 trailer tracking hardware meets the most stringent safety requirements,” said Roni Taylor, executive vice-president of SkyBitz.
In addition to the UL 913 compliancy, SkyBitz also holds the Department of Defense (DoD) Hazards of Electromagnetic Radiation to Ordnance (HERO) certification for transporting DoD munitions and ordnance. The HERO certification acknowledges that the SkyBitz hardware has been stringently tested and proven safe around electrically initiated devices.
