Before investing in an ice and water vending machine, it is important to investigate and understand what certifications, if any, the product you are buying has gone through. All manufacturers DO NOT get their machines certified by the agencies that were set up to protect the consumer, so you will need to investigate. In many states, ice and water vending machines must be NAMA certified to be approved to sell ice and/or water. In addition, many zoning departments require that the machine be ETL listed.
NAMA Certification for Ice and Water Vending Machines
ETL Certification for Ice and Water Vending Machines
Kooler Ice was among the first to invest in these important certifications and all of our ice and water vending machines are NAMA approved and ETL listed to protect you, the owner, as well as your customers. Our machines are audited every quarter by ETL and once a year by NAMA.
In addition, for added consumer safety, Kooler Ice designed its own bag tracking system when we designed our bags to further ensure the comfort of Health Department officials that public safety could be monitored.
