We are delighted to announce we have achieved the certifications required to bring the next generation of art lighting to the global art market.

Our award-winning picture lights have been granted UL Safety Certification by US-based UL Solutions, a globally recognised cask marque grantor for technological safety. In doing so, we can introduce our now-certified picture lights to not only the North American market (UL is federally recognised), but also clients in 46 UL-recognising countries across Europe, Asia, Africa, and the Gulf.

The UL accreditation means that our products – already installed in galleries, museums, hospitality venues, historic houses, and private homes across the UK – can now bring art to light across the globe.

This initiative is part of our drive to be a world-leading specialist in art lighting products. The main demanders of this expansion have been interior designers and lighting designers with international client bases who have worked with us in the UK and want consistency in light quality overseas. To meet this demand, we began the process to apply for UL certification in 2022. An extensive testing process by UL Listed peer companies followed, and the subsequent full approval certifies a product’s safety and competency against agreed industry standards. UL Certification additionally demonstrates a company’s compliance with both local and federal safety and environmental regulations.

Beyond our industry-leading products, we will also provide our tailored service to our growing roster of international clients, operating in an advisory role and retaining oversight of the supply processes. Installation of all products will be carried out by the TM Lighting team or appointed and trained experts in the field, as will any servicing requirements.

TM Lighting’s co-founding director, Harry Triggs, says: “We are pleased to be officially entering the international market with this technological recognition by a globally respected body. TM Lighting’s achievement of UL Certification is a testament to our commitment to excellence in art lighting. We’re now poised to illuminate art across the globe, serving international clients and showcasing our innovative products worldwide”.
