Dynamic adaptive emergency evacuation signage


Evaclite:
The brighter
way to escape

New, intelligent emergency exit signs deliver a faster, safer and smarter evacuation.

Academic trials have proven that Evaclite can reduce evacuation times by half and improve decision times by up to 44%.

How Evaclite dynamic signage can work within your building.

Evaclite dynamic signs have been proven to facilitate a safer evacuation during an emergency. The signs attract the eye and provide a dynamic pulsing array of light within the emergency luminaire. Being intuitive the signs are easily understood by all languages.

Register your interest now for the launch of our 2018 dynamic, adaptive emergency exit signs, and let us know how we can support you in delivering your current and future projects.

The benefits for building owners and operators

  • Helps reduce decision times.
  • In trials, people were able to decide on the correct, safe route 3 times faster.
  • Faster egress speed from greater confidence levels.
  • Level 1: Evacuates people to the available / nearest exits.
  • Level 2: Evacuates people to the safest exits.
  • Level 3: Evacuates people away from potentially dangerous exits.
  • Controlled evacuation.
  • All available exits are better ultilised preventing bottleneck situations.
  • Better exit sharing.
  • Can assist fire wardens / current evac plans particulary for high-rise buildings.

Potential applications

  • For extended travel distances along approved escape routes.
  • For complex buildings, multi level, hospitals, stadia.
  • For route guidance to ingress evacuations, such as safe rooms.
  • For situations where fire/smoke may impact normal evacuation paths.
  • For security applications, such as suspect package, unauthorised entry.
  • For non-conventional evacuation strategies eg use of lifts, re-entry into carparks.
  • For improved evacuation of confined spaces / limited access areas.
  • For buildings with signage clutter, such as airports/rail terminals.
  • For tunnels where smoke/fire may effect visibility of exits.
  • For evacuating people with visual and/or hearing disabilities, such as in hospitals.

The academic perspective

“Guiding people to safety and away from danger is why emergency exit signs exist. But many of today‘s signage systems lack the ability to respond to a changing threat environment or to attract the immediate attention of the people needing assistance.

These signs may be required by building standards and safety legislation, but their potential to be overlooked or to send people into harm‘s way makes them inherently unreliable in many situations for which they are intended.

The passive nature of these emergency systems has contributed to the toll of avoidable deaths in fire and other emergencies.

Tragedies involving the failure of legally compliant emergency signage systems to fulfil their basic purpose include the King‘s Cross Underground fire (UK, 1987), the Düsseldorf Airport fire (Germany, 1996), the Rhode Island Night Club fire (US, 2003) and the Nairobi Westgate Shopping Mall terrorist attack (Africa, 2013) .”
