    UL REQUIREMENTSEffective March 2002, UL implemented a specification revision that caused

    industry standard split ring compression connectors to be incapable of

    passing UL testing. Bridgeport solved this design issue and became the

    industrys first manufacturer to meet the more stringent UL follow-up test

    requirements, thereby ensuring their products consistently and effectively

    excluded water. This allowed Bridgeport to mark their fittings Raintight.

    Some manufacturers have elected to color code their raintight gland

    nuts for identification purposes. A few manufacturers, including

    Bridgeport, have chosen the color blue for their steel EMT raintight

    fittings. Exclusive to Bridgeport is the use of the color blue on their

    zinc compression raintight fittings.
