All of the components that make up a smoke control system are required to be UL listed for their intended use. Space Age is pleased to announce that many of our Gator Relays are now UUKL listed for use in a Smoke Control System. This listing on our relays helps show our commitment to providing listed equipment to those in the life safety industry who are building code-compliant systems.

Why does this listing matter?
Large fires will produce a number of compounds due to rapid oxidation or combustion – most notably, carbon monoxide. The inhalation of carbon monoxide over a long period of time can cause a variety of symptoms such as coughing, chest pain, headache, reduced mental cognition, and eventually death. However, the most jarring statistic to know is smoke inhalation is the number one cause of death in fires. The potential for large loss of life due to smoke from fires is the primary reason why properly designed and installed smoke control systems are an important element of every comprehensive life safety solution.
Proper smoke control requires a combination of electrical, mechanical and physical elements engineered to reduce the spread of smoke in a building allowing for safe predetermined evacuation paths for all occupants.
Safety is our number one goal at Space Age Electronics, and is one of the main pillars on which we’ve built our No Excuses reputation. We’re dedicated to putting the best equipment into our smoke control panels, making sure each is properly listed to maintain the integrity of your life safety system and keep your building occupants safe.
