WINNER - IFSEC/FIREX 2018 'Fire Innovation of the Year Award'
Since 2009 Evaclite have been leading the research & development of Intelligent Active Dynamic Emergency Exit Signage.
have developed their patented, dynamic and adaptive emergency exit signs to only become
‘dynamic' (Green Arrow) or ‘adaptive' (Red Cross) during an alarm event.
use the signs replicate the “passive/static” emergency signage functionality.
active signs may look simple and indeed that was the intention of the design in
terms of being easy to understand, however our research led us to our signature
‘3PA dynamic control' which pulses an LED arrow within the arrow part of the
flash in a cycle of three steps to give the impression of a running sequence of
lights, reinforcing the directional information provided by the arrow.
flashing cycle starts (hence the ‘dynamic') only once the alarm is sounded,
ensuring that building occupants will not become too familiar with the concept
and thus reducing the likelihood of learned irrelevance.
Evaclite signs are open protocol and can be connected to any Fire panel via a
suitable relay – in short, they are Fire Panel manufacturer agnostic they are
not part of ‘a closed solution' allowing for more cost-effective installation
as new or retrofit to an existing Fire panel and detector installation.
enhanced sign design also has the advantage of being the only ‘failsafe' and
fully compliant dynamic exit luminaire, since if the LEDs failed to operate,
the sign remains as a standard fully
compliant passive emergency exit sign.
