Emergency signs and escape route products

Supplier:
Ecoglo Ltd

Ecoglo designs and manufactures emergency lighting solutions; including signs and escape route products to meet New Zealand Building Code Clause F8 Signs and Clause F6 Visibility in Escape Routes. Ecoglo's patented manufacturing process produces highly durable photoluminescent materials that are then incorporated in sustainable, fail-safe and cost effective emergency lighting and signage systems.

Commonly known as Photoluminescent Material (PLM) or Photoluminescent (PL), the material absorbs light and UV rays then re-emits as visible light. The light source for charging can be either artificial or natural light. For rapid charging, F8/AS1 stipulates that 100lux needs to be on the face of the sign to ensure it meets the code for risk group C buildings i.e buildings with less than 1000 occupants.

Having "no wires and no batteries", products allow for significant savings, not only because of the initial capital outlay but also the huge reduction to a virtual nil ongoing maintenance cost. Savings have been calculated over a 30 year life cycle that demonstrate the advantage over electrical signs. A properly installed PL sign costs approx. $14 per year with an estimate of between $55 & $90 for an electrical sign, depending on the type of unit.

Ecoglo's patented products have been used worldwide in facilities as varied as the Melbourne Cricket Ground, New York's 'Jazz at the Lincoln Center', Singapore Supreme Court, Toronto's Eaton Centre, London's Bond St Underground Station and Dubai's 160 floor Burj Khalifa.

By harvesting sunlight or recycling the existing light in a building, Ecoglo products provide sustainable and cost effective building solutions. The solutions are failsafe, operate immediately and do not require ongoing maintenance.

For an Ecoglo design for emergency lighting, email the project fire report to the Ecoglo engineer (engineer@ecoglo.com) who will draw up a design and prepare the producer statement as required by the BCA. Once consented and installed, the work will be inspected by Ecoglo and, providing the installation has been carried out as per the PS1 design, a PS4 will be issued by the Ecoglo IPENZ Registered Engineer.
