Twin City Hose, Inc. Announces
UL® Classification for Water Quality.
Twin City Hose Completes UL® Classification for Lead-Free*
Verification In Compliance With the 2014 Federal Mandate.
City Hose, Inc. is pleased to announce the completion of UL®
Classification for water quality of their V and U shaped
thermal/seismic metal expansion joints and straight flexible metal
connectors. These UL® Classified assemblies are fabricated
domestically using only lead-free* bronze, copper, carbon steel and
stainless steel materials.
Underwriters Laboratories®, known as UL®, is a global, independent
science safety company that has a testing and validation program
which is designed specifically for products that convey or dispense
water for human consumption. Twin City Hose’s UL® Classification
demonstrates compliance with the Federal Reduction of Lead in
Drinking Water Act, which revised the definition for "lead free" in
the Safe Drinking Water Act.
This Federally mandated act came into effect January 4th, 2014, and
is in alliance with NSF®/ANSI® 61 and 372 standards. This
legislation regulates the maximum allowable contaminant level of
lead within potable water piping systems. These products include
plumbing hose and fitting assemblies that come into contact with
potable water and appliances that provide water for drinking or
utilize water in generating beverage or food products.
