Underwriters Laboratories (UL) Certification for Industrial Belts
When UL certification is desired for a product that includes a belt drive, it is typically applied for by an original equipment manufacturer for their finished product (e.g. air conditioner, compressor, lawn mower, vacuum cleaner etc.) rather than at the component level (e.g. v-belt, synchronous belt, bushing, pulley, etc.). Gates has not applied for UL approval of v-belt or synchronous belt drive components.
