With this quite unique project, there was not an ‘off the shelf’ solution that would tick all the boxes for the customer. Producing something from concept to production was the only way forward. Whilst others may walk away from such a brief, our ethos is always ‘life safety’ no matter what the challenge maybe. So, we decided to roll our sleeves up and get to work. Recessing the light fitting as you may normally do to reduce visual impact was not an option in this type of building and most surface mounted light fittings in the emergency lighting arena tend to be large. Also, smaller spotlight types of solutions are recessed but do have a ‘can’ / external extrusion solution.
After examining our portfolio of Emergency light fittings, we quickly concluded that the right product for the project would be Clevertronics Lifelight Pro. This product met the all the performance characteristics of the brief (350lms and long life battery technology) but required adaptation to meet the aesthetic aspects even though it is small, compact and finished to a high standard. To complete the offer, we needed a bespoke surface fixing solution. Our technical product design department did not waste any time in designing and adapting the Lifelight Pro and engineered and easy to fit solution to meet the last objective. Lifelight Pro SMC (Surface Mount Cylinder) was born. The solution now installed gives the customer the longest lifetime product on the market using the leading L10 Lithium Nanophosphate technology giving 50% longer battery life than any other on the market, a very high lumen output to guide people to safety if needed and a product that seamlessly blends within the historic environment. Better still, all this comes with an unrivalled 6 year warranty on everything, including the battery and a 12 year + design life. The customer was extremely happy with the Clevertronics service and flexibility to resolve the challenge set and to aid the safety of the users of the building.
