COLTS EXPANDS "SEAL" OFFERINGS

By LABTALK
COLTS LABORATORIES IS NOW OFFERING ALL CLIENTS AN OPPORTUNITY TO PARTICIPATE IN SEVERAL CERTIFICATION OR “SEAL” PROGRAMS THAT, UNTIL NOW WERE ONLY AVAILABLE ON A LIMITED BASIS.

The Plano Sunglass Seal Program is designed for Sunglass manufacturers/distributors who wish to set their product apart from the competition by validating that their product meets or exceeds both national and international standards. Showcasing compliance to standards and commitment to quality helps substantiate higher sale price points. COLTS can offer testing to ANSI Z80.3, ISO 12311/12312 and AS/NZS 1067, and by testing to multiple standards at once it can be done at a substantial discount. Compliance to the international standards opens up new markets for those manufacturers.

COLTS Tactical Seal is for manufacturers and distributors of safety eyewear that is marketed in the direction of hunters, sportsman or gun enthusiasts. To be eligible for the Tactical Seal the client must pass ANSI Z87.1+ requirements and ballistics for Mil PRF 32432(GL). Demonstrating that their product is not only compliant for everyday safety situations but qualified for shooting safety purposes as well. This allows seal members to distinguish themselves from the competition as many products sold as tactical do not meet minimum requirements.

The AR Audit Seal Program is directed towards all laboratories that want to quantify and continuously monitor their AR process. Starting with establishing a baseline of acceptable level of performance utilizing COLTS patented Real Life Simulation test. By reviewing subsequent interval test data COLTS helps them recognize anomalies that can point out subtle changes and variations in their AR processes. Early detection of manufacturing discrepancies allows fixes to occur more quickly.

The Lab RX Quality Seal program was designed to showcase any laboratory or on-line retailer wanting to demonstrate their commitment to quality services and production through independent third-party testing. Consistently meeting or exceeding the ANSI Z80.1-2015 standards is the cornerstone of this program as testing is conducted “blind” at regular intervals. Prescriptions are submitted to the labs each quarter and then sent to COLTS for testing and validation. Laboratories must consistently maintain a minimum acceptable threshold of performance at each time interval to remain active in the “Seal program.”
