G-TEC Torch Boosters are Certified By CSA-International
CSA International is accredited in the United States by the Occupational Safety and
Health Administration (OSHA) as a Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratory (NRTL),
and in Canada by the Standards Council of Canada (SCC).
In most jurisdictions in North America the CSA label on the G-TEC Torch Booster is
sufficient for approval by building inspectors, fire marshals and other authorities.
In some cases a local fire or utility official may be unfamiliar with G-TEC Torch
Boosters. We always welcome the opportunity to speak with officials to explain how
the system works and answer their questions.
