Lighting FAQ's

What is the difference between a UL and ETL listing?

None. Aside from the body that issues the listing, there is no difference between a UL listing and an ETL listing.

Because Intertek ETL tests products to previously published UL Standards for Safety, products marked as ETL-Listed meet the same criteria as those marked UL-Listed or UL-Recognized.

What is specification-grade or spec grade?

Specification-grade products are products with a variety of assembly variation—length, wattage, finish color, Color Rendering Index (CRI) range, beam spread, etc.—thus are not stocked in volume.

Alcon Lighting stocks components to build each specified product to order, which requires varying lead times.

What is Commercial LED Lighting?

Commercial LED lighting is lighting used in non-residential applications (LED stands for light-emitting diode). “Commercial-grade” typically denotes increased durability, vandal-resistant, featuring advanced, smart lighting technologies such as Bluetooth and Wireless Mesh systems. Commercial lighting applications include, but are not limited to, offices, schools, hospitality and dining, industrial, warehouse and manufacturing facilities.
