Grote's new LightForm Emergency Egress Lighting Film comes in a variety of colors, including red, blue, green, amber and Grote LED WhiteLight.
MADISON, Ind. — Grote Industries has introduced its new LightForm Emergency Egress Lighting Film, which features low-profile LED lighting technology to enhance vehicle safety.
LightForm Emergency Egress Lighting Film provides all of the advantages of adhesive exit markers with the added benefit of being powered, according to the company. The film provides the kind of bright illumination that can help lead disoriented passengers to safety, even in dark or hazy conditions.
"LightForm Emergency Egress Lighting Film is easy to install, and unlike traditional lighting fixtures, requires no lens or bezel," said Steve Green, business development manager for LightForm. "The highly advanced, thin-film, solid-state lighting device easily resists water and concussion and will function properly even after significant trauma. The product is so robust that it will continue to operate even after sustaining significant damage."
Because it's a film, Grote's new lighting product can conform to the shape and contours of virtually any door or exit, and its aggressive adhesive backing allows it to adhere to nearly any surface material, officials said.
LED brightness is consistent throughout the length of the product, and multiple modules can be daisy-chained together, minimizing wiring and harness routing issues. The lamps don't extend into the passenger space, so they pose no hang-up risk or obstacle to egress, and they come in a variety of traditional colors, including red, blue, green, amber and Grote LED WhiteLight.
"Because LightForm Emergency Egress Lighting Film is paper-thin and super lightweight, it can't shatter, significantly lowering the potential for this egress lamp to cause injury," Green added.
LightForm Emergency Egress Lighting Film comes standard in a 12-volt version. Custom voltages and a 24-volt product version are also available.
The product has been rigorously tested and meets the military performance standard 810G for temperature, rainfall, corrosion, sand/dust, submersion temperature, vibration and shock. It also meets military performance standards 461 and 464 for electromagnetic interference.
