Texas-based Anchor Products, the Compression Free U-Anchor developer, announced on Tuesday that it had gained FM Approved Certification on a wide range of its U-Anchor product line-up. 

In a Dec. 12 news release, Anchor explained that when products are FM-approved, it certifies that they conform to the “…highest standards of quality, technical integrity, and performance.” FM Approvals has been a trusted source of property loss prevention and product evaluation for more than a century. The FM Approvals’ audit process helps ensure that products continue to meet all the requirements of the test standard or specification.

"This is very exciting news for our Anchor Products organization,” Joel Stanley, Anchor Products’ founder and CEO, said. “As a leader in the industry and the first to achieve FM acceptance … Anchor Product’s commitment to superior product quality is recognized in the broader marketplace.”

FM Approvals is the independent testing arm of international insurance carrier FM Global. FM approvals use engineering research and testing to make sure products conform to the highest standards for safety and property loss prevention. 

Products that pass get the “FM APPROVED” mark. FM Approvals is an international leader in third-party testing and certification services. FM tests property loss prevention products and services — for use in commercial and industrial facilities — to verify they meet rigorous loss prevention standards of quality, technical integrity, and performance. 

“I am proud of our entire team for gaining the FM Approval Stamp and the way it represents our daily pursuit of excellence across the board,” Stanley added. “The FM Approved mark is recognized and respected worldwide; the FM Approved Certification instills confidence and commands respect in the marketplace.”
