air compressor Jenny Products

Air compressors: Jenny Products Inc. has achieved the “UL Listed” designation from Underwriter Laboratories (UL) on the company’s full line of electric motor piston air compressors. This standard, in conjunction with other recent certifications, signifies that Jenny electric air compressors have reached an unprecedented level of safety in the industry.

To be UL Listed means Jenny electric air compressors have been tested and determined to meet UL's strict requirements, which are based primarily on their published and nationally recognized Standards for Safety. The Canadian Standards Association (CSA) also certified Jenny air compressors to UL 1450 and C22.2 No. 68-09, the safety standards covering motor-operated air compressors, vacuum pumps, and painting equipment, for the United States and Canada. The requirements met for the certification were issued by CSA, which found that Jenny air compressors met the high safety standards of the UL 1450 code.

In January, Jenny made an announcement of certification; however, achieving “UL Listed” is the next highest safety tier for air compressors. Going forward, all Jenny electric piston air compressors will carry both UL and CSA marks.

“It takes significant investment and effort to be UL Listed, and receiving approval from both UL and CSA is a proud milestone that speaks to the inherent safety of Jenny air compressors,” said Daniel Leiss, president of Jenny Products .“This pushes Jenny to a safety standard not found with most compressor manufacturers that, when combined with known reliability and ease of use, offers just one more reason consumers can feel confident when purchasing a Jenny compressor.”

UL and CSA certify, validate, test, inspect, audit, and advise and train in order to provide knowledge and expertise for customers to navigate various markets in the United Stated and Canada. The Jenny air compressors now UL Listed and certified to both UL and CSA standards include all electric units, from the small AM-Series hand-carry models up to the largest T-Series stationary compressors.

With roots dating back to the 1870s, Jenny Products, Inc. has been an OEM manufacturer for several major manufacturers of air compressors. Today, Jenny manufactures and markets its own line of hand-carry, wheeled-portable and industrial-stationary air compressors.
