Safety and Compliance Report

Radic8 Safety Report 1

Introduction

With high-end air purification still a relatively new market, manufacturers need to ensure clean air devices meet strict safety and emissions standards for the health and safety of end users. Radic8 devices are tested for regulatory compliance and certification by the world’s top regulatory bodies.

Testing Laboratories

Radic8 worked with UL International GmbH, an organisation with both CBTL and NRTL status, to provide valuable third-party, science-backed certification that is recognized and accepted worldwide.

NRTL

A Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratory (NRTL) is recognized by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) as meeting the legal requirements to perform testing and certification of products using consensus-based test standards. An NRTL-certified product demonstrates that it has been tested by an accredited, competent, and objective third party.

CBTL

Similar to an NRTL, a Certification Body Testing Laboratory (CBTL) is recognized by the International Electrotechnical Committee Electrotechnical Equipment (IECEE) as meeting the legal requirements to perform testing and certification of products using consensus-based test standards.

Results

The VK Pro, VK Air, and Hextio are electrically safe, ozone and emissions-free, and safe for use in indoor environments.

* The VK Pro, VK Air, and Hextio emit less than 0.005 ppm of ozone over a 24-hour period, falling below the acceptable zero-ozone emission limit required by leading authorities on consumer safety standards in North America. With filters removed, total UV irradiance measured at 0cm from all Radic8 device outlets is less than 1 mW/m2.
