Wind load testing outdoor lighting UL or CSA


Thread Starter

Please advise if UL and/or CSA does wind load testing for outdoor lighting fixtures. Others? Estimated turn around time for testing?
Building code requires 3 second wind gust speed of 120 mph and a 110 sustain wind speed for the wind load testing requirement for debris management.

The light fixture we are considering has a integral mounting receptacle designed into the body of the cast aluminum light assembly. This cobra head light fixture will be attached to a pole and base that has been approved.

Really need help on this one! The light fixture has been approved by UL, CSA, RoH. No data on wind loads using the above wind speed factors!

Much thank!
