Stertil-Koni announced Aug. 26 it has taken the lead in terms of the total number of ALI/ETL certified heavy-duty lifting products.
Every Stertil-Koni vehicle lift model currently in production and previously certified under the old standard ANSI/ALI ALCTV-2006 has now been recertified to the new ANSI/ALI ALCTV-2011 standard. Upon reaching this milestone, Stertil-Koni company president Jean DellAmore, said “Stertil-Koni is extremely proud of the fact that we have more heavy duty certified products than any other member of the ALI organization.”
Continued DellAmore, “Stertil-Koni’s unparalleled growth is in part the result of our firm commitment to fulfilling the rigorous requirements of third party certification by a nationally recognized testing laboratory (NRTL), as exemplified by the ALI testing program.”
Certification is a process whereby an independent NRTL determines that a manufacturer has the ability to produce a product that complies with a specific set of standards – in this instance ALCTV-2011, UL201 and CAN 2.22 Part 68. Certification further authorizes the manufacturer to use the NRTL’s controlled gold label on listed products representing the certified models.
Certified products undergo periodic re-evaluation and are required to be produced within the requirements of a documented quality program. In the case of heavy duty vehicle lifts, the program is audited quarterly to ensure continued compliance with the applicable standards.
