One of the latest trends in the market is the inclination toward design-driven emergency lights. The provision of appropriate emergency lighting can present many challenges for architects, electrical consultants, and lighting designers. At the start of any emergency lighting design, the relevant information regarding the premises needs to be obtained either from drawings, a site survey, or the building in charge. If this information is not obtained correctly, it may lead to a poorly designed emergency lighting system. Emergency lighting products are mandated by law and are an essential building requirement, but poorly designed lighting products, are likely to spoil the aesthetic appearance.
Manufacturers and lighting designers are now emphasizing on the aesthetic aspect of emergency lights as it plays an important role, especially in places such as hotels, architectural buildings, and houses. End users are concerned about the positioning and appearance of emergency lights. Vendors are increasingly introducing aesthetically appealing emergency lights without compromising on safety.
At Prolite, we observe these things closely and innovate to create products that are equipped to cater to newer threats and changes in the environment and give the customer maximum protection 24X7 even in these changed circumstances. Therefore, “The most innovative product company” award we got at the Fire India show was no accident.
Our conversion module for example, is designed to be almost invisible and converts an existing luminaire into an emergency light if power fails. This way the aesthetics are not compromised and it becomes easy on the customer’s pocket too. Our flameproof range is another recent innovation designed to perform at very high temperatures while remaining unaffected by flames. The literally ‘never ending’ infinite light idea where in the case of power failure some parts of the elongated light remain unaffected while some shut down along a linear sequence of lights is a boon for tunnels or passages as well as godowns or similar locations where power failures can cause huge problems in visibility.
The world has changed as never before and products and even ideas are becoming obsolete. The concept of safety and exigency too has undergone serious change. Rapid urbanization, congestion, overpopulation and related factors have added extra load on infrastructure- load that it was not equipped to take in the first place.
At Prolite we never took it lightly 30 years back and to this day, we don’t take it lightly.
