Innovative Emergency Lighting Receives Intertek ETL Listed Mark and SAFETY Act Certification
Online PR News – 11-September-2015 – San Clemente, CA – San Clemente, Calif. (September 10, 2015) – LightSaver Technologies, a company dedicated to saving lives through its products, is proud to announce the receipt of an ETL Listed Mark for its innovative LinearStrobe™ series of egress-marking visible notification appliance products. Additionally, the company recently received a 5-year designation as a qualified anti-terrorism technology (QATT) from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s SAFETY Act Science & Technology Directorate. The lighting systems, which respectively conform to UL217 (ULC-S531) and UL1971, are the first and only linear format fire- alarm-system-driven visible notification appliances which provide a multi-elevation visual alert signaling for fire alarm systems. The LinearStrobe™ system-integrated models were previously were listed as an ETL Recognized Component.
The move from an ETL Recognized Component to ETL Listed product provides an added benefit to users when undergoing inspections by authorities having jurisdiction (AHJs). The transition to a listed product required additional testing to meet all aspects of applicable standards. As a recognized component the product previously was tested to, and passed, the most applicable aspects of the standards. Completing the more comprehensive, complete testing and obtaining full ETL listing meets market demand, providing LightSaver customers with greater value and AHJ’s nationwide with confirmation that the technology meets or exceeds their required standards in the field.
“Unlike conventional, traditional visible notification appliances, the LightSaver LinearStrobe is an innovative way to not only alert occupants, like strobes do, but also demark the entire exit to direct occupants and responding firefighters and rescue personnel in the critical moments when they need it most,” said Jerry Anderson, Founder and CEO of LightSaver. "As we sought to bring a new, groundbreaking option to the life safety industry, we studied the NRTL’s and recognized Intertek as a leader in the space who has vision coupled with a customer-centric focus that would help us bring our product to market. We’re pleased to obtain a full ETL listing with Intertek, as we also receive recognition from the federal government for our technology."
The LinearStrobe works by outlining the entire periphery of the exit and/or the surrounding low areas along the path of egress making it readily visible to the buildings occupants, firefighters and rescue personnel from any direction of approach. This provides a highly effective synchronized light message which serves as an alternative to the more conventional low-level exit signage or other integrated visible notification appliances. The LinearStrobe’s highly visible light message is always below the smoke layer. This unique placement format makes it significantly more visible at low levels and much less likely to be obstructed by smoke during a fire emergency when it is needed most. This provides the longest possible period of time for occupants to effectively locate an exit path below the smoke layer. In gaining products certification, the product now bears the ETL Mark indicating it meets the necessary safety and performance standards required by code in both commercial and residential applications.
