Safety Equipment Institute Issues First Certifications to 2013 Imager Standard

Three companies have received certifications after independent testing was conducted by Intertek Testing Services of Cortland, N.Y.

The Safety Equipment Institute has issued certifications for the first time to the new criteria in NFPA 1801, Standard on Thermal Imagers for the Fire Service, 2013 Edition. This edition had an effective date of June 18, 2012.

SEI, based in McLean, Va., announced Jan. 16 that it has issued certifications to the 2013 edition to three manufacturers:

  • Bullard, for model T4N

The standard's 2013 edition includes design and performance requirements for operating modes and image quality. The required testing includes image recognition, vibration, impact acceleration resistance, corrosion, viewing surface abrasion, heat resistance, heat and flame, product label durability, cable pullout, effective temperature range, field of view measurement, thermal sensitivity, and durability. Independent testing was conducted by Intertek Testing Services of Cortland, N.Y. SEI's news release indicated additional certifications are expected to be issued later this year.

"As a non-profit organization, we are committed to making sure emergency responders have confidence in the safety products they rely on for protection," said SEI President Patricia A. Gleason.
