Unlike any other IR window manufacturer, all the components of the IRISS VP and CAP Series IR windows now comply with applicable Canadian standards Class 3211 37* and U.S. standards 3211 97** for Industrial Control Equipment Sub-Assemblies.

“Certification assures both the IRISS IR window owners and distributors that every IRISS window now conforms to the highest electrical standards available,” states Martin Robinson, CEO of IRISS. “It reinforces our passion of providing the very best quality equipment and long-term value in the marketplace today.”

“This achievement now permits IRISS to surpass the competition within Canada since the CSA standard approved is the highest standard in the industry,” comments IRISS distributor, Scott Thornton, Business Development and Project Manager of DTM Consulting in Ontario, Canada.

The IRISS IR windows have been issued a CSA C & US certificate. The C and US indicators adjacent to the CSA Mark signify that the IRISS IR windows have been tested to the applicable CSA, American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and Underwriters Laboratories (UL) Standards for use in Canada and U.S. respectively.
