DGA Security Systems Certified for UL 2050 Compliance


NEW YORK (February 3, 2010) – DGA Security Systems, Inc., is pleased to announce that it has been UL 2050 certified, allowing it to install, service and monitor security systems for federal facilities including the U.S. Department of Defense. DGA becomes one of a select number of security companies in the nation to obtain this certification for both the installation and monitoring of systems.

The UL 2050 listing confirms that DGA has met the stringent requirements for the protection of classified materials as certified by Underwriters Laboratories. When evaluating security companies, UL only certifies those that are staffed with highly skilled employees who have gone through extensive training, have appropriate backup procedures in place and follow UL-specific processes.

According to Pete Tallman, section manager of UL’s alarm system certificate service, “UL is the trusted source for standards compliance. By issuing the UL 2050 certification to DGA, UL is stating that we’ve ascertained that DGA adheres to this very strict standard. To date, only a select number of companies have demonstrated the skills and infrastructure needed to satisfy the standard’s requirements.”

“UL has confirmed that DGA can satisfy organizations that require the utmost protection,” said Stanley Oppenheim, DGA’s founder and president. “We maintain a steadfast commitment to provide our customers with superior service, operational excellence and the right security solutions to fit their needs.”

DGA Security Systems is a full service provider of commercial security systems, and is the largest independent security systems company in the New York metropolitan area. DGA is also one of the few companies accredited by the FDNY to monitor fire alarms in New York City. In 2009, the Central Station Alarm Association recognized DGA as the Central Station of the Year.
