Earlier this month there was a fire in a Manhattan high-rise building that is one example of how PL products in stairwells could be life-saving products in situation. Here’s the link:
PSA Board President Al Carlson notes this situation is one more reason LL26 should apply to noncommercial buildings. That was not, however, among the recommendations mentioned in a follow-up article where local officials discussed the need to implement new fire safety measures. Here’s the link to this second article:

Last year PSA member Jessup Manufacturing was involved with UL Canada in responding to NRC in Canada. (NRC is an agency of the Government of Canada and its premier research and technology organization; they are also in charge of the committees that make up the National Building Code of Canada.) The letter, posted on the Members Only web page under the heading “Member’s Library,” concerns claims made by the electrical industry about the performance of PL products. The letter takes exception with electrical industry’s claims and highlights the benefits of PL products.
This letter is an excellent example of why we need our trade association for the PL industry—so that individually and collectively we can be advocates and let consumers, customers, and government agencies know the value of PL products.
