It goes without saying that it’s important to use an ASC who is properly factory trained and who can install the correct factory OEM parts or batteries. Let’s list the consequences of NOT using an ASC or OEM parts for this important task:
Use of non-OEM parts or batteries will:
-violate the UL924 Life Safety Code
-void the products UL listing
-void the products warranty
-produce a possible dangerous situation for an untrained technician
-create a potential situation where the product is unreliable or fails
As facility / EHS managers, we need to do everything we can to ensure that all our Emergency egress lighting and exits are fully operational and code compliant. Using an Authorized Service Center is a very important part of this effort.
You wouldn’t bring your Chevy to a Ford dealer for repair, would you?
