Emergency lighting is one of the most important safety features to be considered when designing any public building. The lighting system needs to be fail-safe in the event of a power failure. Ecoglo® represents the latest innovation in emergency lighting systems, requiring no electricity to ensure safe passage in all conditions.Ecoglo products feature a built-in photoluminescent strip made up of crystals in a pigment that absorbs light from both solar and artificial sources. The luminescent strips quickly become charged and emit a steady green glow. The Ecoglo strips will continue to glow in the event of a power outage until all the absorbed energy is exhausted. When exposed with the appropriate levels of light, Ecoglo will be visible to patrons in a darkened stadium for many hours following a blackout. Ecoglo can recharge quickly once exposed to light. The hard, long-lasting finish of Ecoglo will maintain its luminescence for the life span of most public buildings, and is a cheaper alternative to standard emergency lighting systems. Ecoglo is easily system code compliant as an enhancement to new or existing emergency lighting systems. It is easily installed or fitted into existing applications. Products in the Ecoglo line include step contrast strips, step nosings and thresholds, and handrail strips. Ecoglo is also an easy to maintain emergency lighting system. You can use most cleaning chemicals on the Ecoglo strips, although the use of undiluted or high alkaline chemicals is not recommended. High pressure water treatments can also be used with no effect on the product. Ecoglo is the smart choice for effective and fail safe emergency lighting.
