Ecoglo designs and manufactures 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.
Ecoglo’s research and development has focused on developing products that have superior durability and predictable visibility. In New Zealand Ecoglo can be seen at Eden Park, Canterbury University, Vector Arena, Downtown Carpark, Christchurch and Wellington Hospitals, St James Theatre, as well as many other educational and public facility buildings.
Ecoglo’s patented products have been used worldwide in facilities as varied as the Melbourne Cricket Ground, New York’s ‘Jazz at 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.
ESCAPE ROUTE PRODUCTS
The products below are designed to ensure visibility of steps, ramps, corridors and pathways in escape routes to meet NZBC Clause F6 ‘Visibility in Escape Routes’. They will be effective in all light conditions including during the failure of the main lighting. All products have been independantly tested in accordance with UL1994 for 10 metre visibility to meet NZBC Clause F6.
ECOGLO EMERGENCY EXIT SIGNS
Ecoglo’s Emergency Exit Signs are manufactured and tested to comply with F8/AS1. They are also designed to be used in engineered solutions to meet building codes in Australia, New Zealand and any performance based jurisdiction around the world. Ecoglo’s high visibility and durability ensure that the signs can be installed in any environment, indoors or outdoors. As long as there is sufficient natural or artificial light to charge the signs then a system can be engineered to meet building code performance specifications. Signs using “EXIT” and ISO graphics are available and custom graphics can be supplied to meet regional code variations.
SPORT AND THEATRE MARKERS
Ecoglo’s highly visible seat numbers guide your customers to their seats. Working equally well in light, dark and dim conditions they reduce the disruption to other customers, increase the efficiency of ushers and make it easier for a customer to go to the concessions or other facilities. The photoluminescent seat number is designed to be visible for the length of a performance (concert, movies, etc) to enhance the orderly movement of people to and from their seats. The basic design consists of black text on glowing background with custom layouts also available.
