NEC 2017 Compliant Labels
Click here for NEC 2017 Label Poster
Solar Installation Labels are designed to meet the most recent requirements of the NEC (National Electrical Code) and the IFC (International Fire Code) as well as UL969 requirements. The adhesive is designed for a strong permanent bond on textured surfaces. Labels are extremely UV resistant.
If there is one thing that every installer, engineer and designer can agree on is that there is no universal consensus on the definition of acceptable photovoltaic infrastructure labeling. The industry is still new and the codes and regulations are so diverse that most installers are left on their own to figure out how to ensure they pass inspection, while still meeting the labeling requirements of the National Electrical Code (NEC) and the International Fire Code (IFC). Both standards go hand in hand and address key issues of PV labeling. All Fire Marshalls are concerned about safety of first responders and emergency personnel.
Again, there is no right or wrong answer on marker selection as long as the installer is meeting the requirements of the AHJ (Authority Having Jurisdiction) in all instances. The trend that we are seeing is that labeling products with specialized features, such as reflectivity, are the vanguard of the new era.
