Emergency and exit signs should be an essential component when upgrading your lighting system.
Exit signs and emergency lights are generally not the first thing that comes to mind when thinking about energy efficiency. But that doesn’t mean property and building managers shouldn’t consider efficient lighting fixtures.
In fact, emergency lighting and exit signage are essential for accidents or catastrophic events that require a safe and smooth evacuation from a building. It provides illumination allowing people to see clearly, avoid obstacles and move confidently to the nearest exit in a crisis.
Emergency ballasts allow an existing light fixture to operate in emergency battery mode during a power outage. In the event of a power failure, the emergency battery ballast operates the fixture, powering the lamp for a minimum of 90 minutes from the built-in backup battery.
So when you consider updating your lighting fixtures, don’t forget about emergency lighting as an essential component.
Most elevator lights run 24/7, accounting for up to 70% of the energy costs of elevator operations.
Worldwide Energy offers an energy-saving, LED lamp. As a replacement for a 15W incandescent down-light fixture, the LED not only presents better visibility, comfort, color and aesthetics, but also reduces heat and uses 87% less energy.
These LEDs have a durable design that will withstand the vibrations and motions of the elevator cabin. With a 50,000 hour rated life (compared to 1,500 – 2,500 hours of incandescent bulbs), maintenance is minimal. Other applications for these lamps include; retail displays, task lighting, hospitality and institutional installations.
