San Clemente, CA (PRWEB) March 19, 2014

LightSaver Technologies, a company dedicated to saving lives through its products, is proud to announce it recently gained Intertek’s ETL listing for its innovative LinearStrobe single-station Model L-100 and system-integrated Model L-200Si series of Egress-Marking Visible Notification Appliance™ products. The products, which respectively conform to UL217 (ULC-S531) and UL1971, are designed to provide additional visual supplement to a fire alarm system in an emergency situation.

“From an early age, we’re taught to drop to the floor when confronted with a fire emergency,” says LightSaver founder and CEO, Jerry Anderson, “and that is why the LinearStrobe just makes sense. During a fire, the visibility loss to thick black smoke is a major impairment and the traditional above-door strobe light may not provide the proper guidance to a means of egress. Unlike conventional traditional visible notification appliances, the LinearStrobe delivers its light message at both high and low elevations. This new technology not only alerts occupants to the emergency condition in the immediate space or connected zone, it also demarks the exit or path of egress, and directs a building’s occupants to safety when those emergency conditions activate the buildings alarms or notification system.”

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 from any direction. 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 is significantly more visible at low levels and is much less likely to be obstructed 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.

“Intertek is proud to have this product bear our ETL mark,” said Tom Connaughton, Intertek’s Global Director of Life Safety and Security. “When unique products like the LinearStrobe come to us, not only do we see it as an opportunity to help the customer but to help advance the innovation that save lives. As an independent third party testing lab serving the life safety industry, Intertek plays an important role in ensuring the products we list meet the required strict safety and performance standards, but also to partner with our customers to help bring their innovations to market quickly and efficiently.”
