Minigeza Safety Certification
How safe is the Minigeza and what certification does it have as proof of safety? Is the Minigeza SABS approved?
We get these questions daily from potential buyers, and today I decided to give you the long answers to these questions.
When it comes to electrical precision heating appliances there are very strict and controlled regulation in place before such appliance can be sold in the open market. In South Africa there are two labratories that tests electrical equipment under the mandate of the NRCS (National Regulator for Compulsory Specifications). The two labratories are SABS and Test South Africa.
The Minigeza has been tested and approved under the IEC (International Electricity Commission)
SABS IEC 60 335 - 2 - 74 which is a higher standards than the normal SABS standard. The certification was re-done on 05/03/2010 and is valid up until 08/03/2013, after which it will undergo the test again.
It is interesting to know that part of the testing included burning the outer shroud to 300 degrees celcius, the Minigeza passed with flying colours.
The Minigeza is safe...very safe. As long as the unit is used as per the safety instructions and it remains earthed at all times (hence the sealed plug).
To keep cost down, we have decided not to include the SABS logo on the packaging, however the full SABS certiciation can be made available for you to view at our premises.
I hope this gives you a better understanding of how safe the Minigeza is.
Have a wonderful day. Hennau
