Our E-Commerce allows anyone to have access to online electrical products at a more affordable price compare to local retailers. Purchasing directly from the manufacturer will save you money and we have many nice LED products.
Many individuals shopping online are unaware of the proper certifications you need for your electrical products to operate safely and not cause any fire hazard when away or while you and your family sleep.
We are here to educate the buyer, so they don't make the wrong choice when purchasing LED products by explaining the different categories of certifications:
- UL, ETL & CSA is the certification that is required for your electrical products to operate safely in North America.
- CE is the certification that is require for your electrical products to operate safely in Europe and other international countries.
- DLC & Energy Star certifications is what is needed to be able to qualify for any LED rebate program along with UL, ETL or CSA in the North America Market.
We have transitioned to using domestic manufacturers whose head office are either in either Canada or the USA. Their products may be manufactured overseas, but they are manufactured to their specifications, binning and quality control based on their high standards. There are only a limited amount of factories qualified and trusted by domestic lighting companies to use and it not uncommon for a factory may make LED fixtures for different lighting companies.
The problem occurs when the Head Office of the LED fixtures is in Asia. An individual or business really doesn't know how flimsy their manufacturer warranty really is until you have to use it. You see, like most manufacturers, they want you to ship the faulty fixture to their plant for testing to investigate why it failed. Unfortunately, the shipping cost to send just one LED fixture to China may be in the hundreds of dollars. Far more than what you paid for it, resulting in you having to pay for a new one. So really, you have no warranty when you buy Chinese products online.
What's worst, many individuals buy based on price and many times they are not educated in knowing what LED is certified for North America and, most don't care, until their business burns to the ground. If the insurance company is informed by the fire investigator that the cause of the fire was the LED fixture over heating and igniting the blaze, you may be without insurance funds to rebuild your business.
