Building Codes

Just as the industry has evolved, so have the construction techniques and safety standards. While the industry is constantly producing new models, there are a lot of privately owned units out in the field. One of the goals of MARS is to see that all units new or old meet all the current safety standards.
NEW products are tagged with RED labels, and OLD ones with GREEN labels, shown here. It’s your assurance that the product your buying or renting meets all current safety and construction codes.
So look for the Label; it it’s not there, find out why!
