New cost effective one-optic solution for emergency exit route lights.

Exit routes need to be efficiently lit in order to evacuate buildings safely. Escape route lighting fixtures are often powered with built-in backup batteries in case of power supply failures. EN 1838 standard demands that emergency lighting must stay lit for at least an hour after power supply failure. This sets high demands for the power consumption and efficiency of the fixture.

LEDiL’s new EMERALD optic answers just these demands. It is designed to be a one-LED, one-optic solution for exit route lighting. With EMERALD’s extremely wide beam distribution it’s possible to achieve EN 1838 compliant lighting for installation height to distance ratios up to and beyond 1:7.

Extended illumination range and single LED design reduces costs of the fixture and installation significantly.
