lighting testing industry leaders

Who is ITL Boulder?

ITL, founded in 1955, was one of the first independent light testing laboratories in the country. We provided lighting manufacturers, specifiers, designers, architects, the government and others an accurate, efficient and unbiased source of evaluation for virtually every type of lighting. Today, as the most experienced independent lab in the industry, we continue to concentrate on providing accurate and comprehensive testing as well as the exceptional service on which we have built our reputation.

Put Us to the Test

ITL’s main focus has always been on testing. That has given us the opportunity to learn a lot about our clients and what they need. We have used that information to create a unique testing program that is simply unmatched. We know our clients want reports they can really use. So, ITL’s computer generated reports are clean, thorough, well organized and easy to follow. ITL offers many test services, which include indoor, roadway and floodlight photometry, flashing barricade warning lights, traffic signals and ballast testing. We test lamps and luminaires of all light source types such as LED (SSL), fluorescent, HID, LCD, induction, incandescent, etc.

Lighting Expertise Sets Us Apart

We test per the procedures and recommendations of the Illuminating Engineering Society of North America (IESNA). We also have two employees who belong to the IESNA’s Testing Procedures Committee. This committee develops the standardized test procedures that are published by the IESNA and used by testing laboratories throughout the world. ITL is staffed with photometric experts who use state-of-the-art equipment including our own precision-designed photometers. (These experts double as trouble-shooters who have been known to help our clients avoid costly mistakes.) We have engineering and design specialists who provide a wide array of related services. But just as important as what we do, is how we do it. Our clients work with ITL lighting experts who truly understand your needs and products. This not only shortens the time necessary to complete your tests, but also helps you get fast, knowledgeable answers to your questions.
