The ARI announced the launch of its newest certification program for commercial refrigerated display merchandisers and storage cabinets.

The new program joins 25 other ARI-administered certification programs in utilizing the globally recognized and trusted ARI Performance Certified mark that provides consumer assurance of heating, ventilation, air conditioning and refrigeration (HVACR) product performance. ARI’s certification programs are voluntary and open to domestic and international manufacturers of this equipment.

The use of the ARI Performance Certified mark is only granted to products that meet or exceed the manufacturer’s published performance ratings through ARI’s independent, annual testing of the product. To verify that a particular product has earned the ARI Performance Certified mark, consumers can access ARI’s online Directory of Certified Product Performance at www.aridirectory.org.
