Approval is the key mark of quality assurance.
Ansell Lighting has achieved LIA 003 laboratory certification for its Warrington-based luminaire test facilities.
The laboratory is one of six UK laboratories to have achieved accreditation, allowing Ansell to internally validate the quality and performance of its new and existing products.
The LIA’s seal of approval follows an investment of Â£ x in a state-of-the-art goniophotometer, the Gonio Tunnel, for the lab. This allows Ansell to test components, new product design prototypes and existing products, to ensure full accuracy and compliance with industry standards.
Brightness tests performed using the Gonio tunnel can also be cross-checked and verified by the LIA as additional quality assurance.
Mark Abbott, Managing Director at Ansell Lighting, said: âThe certification of the LIA laboratory recognizes that our testing capabilities are comparable to that of the LIA’s testing facilities in Telford.
âWe have undergone a rigorous evaluation process, covering everything from equipment and test procedures to our quality management system, independence and impartiality, and we are delighted to have earned our place. among an elite group within the luminary community. “
He added, âBeing approved to perform lumen testing in-house, rather than having to outsource testing, allows us to streamline and improve product development and accelerate time to market.
âMost importantly, the ‘LIA Lab Certification’ logo instantly assures Ansell customers that our products meet the highest standards in the industry.
LIA laboratory certification applies to all LED lamps for display, hobby, commerce, industry, lighting, emergency lighting and smart lighting.
