New light shed on emergency units

GreenBrook has helped to provide an illuminating solution to market demand for self-testing emergency lights, supplying thousands of its bulkhead style luminaires to Exco for modification.

New light shed on emergency units

Exco used to manufacture its own emergency lights but the company now finds it more cost-effective to buy in the GreenBrook emergency luminaires and fit a specially-designed circuit with integral microcontroller.

Explains Phil Brooke-Little of Exco: "We searched the marketplace for a quality luminaire that we could modify to create a self-testing emergency light and the Greenbrook fitting was ideal as it has plenty of space to fit the extra circuit that we've designed. We now find that demand is high for these luminaires across all kinds of sectors, including schools, hospitals and industrial plants as they combine GreenBrook quality and reliability with the additional self-testing functionality that we fit."

Exco modifies the GreenBrook lights to the relevant British Standard and its custom-designed circuits incorporate several unique features such as the ability to prevent testing during the night, which is ideal for environments like hospitals and care homes where night time testing could disturb patients. Similarly, the modified unit can be set to carry out testing outside of business hours, enabling cinemas, for example, to test the lights when customers are not present.

Richard Shaw, managing director of GreenBrook adds: "The GreenBrook Emergency Bulkhead Luminaires is just one of a wide range of emergency luminaires offered by GreenBrook which includes twin spots, bulk heads style units, exit signs, recessed units and decorative bulkheads. Exco has applied its specialist expertise to our products to broaden this range even further and we are delighted that our combined product development has so successfully filled a gap in the market."
