Waylighter LED

Step right this way and have a look at the future of egress emergency lighting – Waylighter!

This low level egress system provides a concealed, vandal-resistant LED emergency light able to project uniform illumination along the egress corridor, with spacings up to 50-feet on center. A mere 18” above floor level, Waylighter continues to guide the route to safety even in heavy smoke conditions. Importantly, Waylighter eliminates distracting glare and light blockage, problems associated with traditional ceiling, or wallmounted emergency lights.

Waylighter, when used in conjunction with our low-level mounted exit signs and Waymarking system, offers the ultimate emergency lighting solution.

Waylighter is the first high performance emergency luminaire to meet the preferred egress lighting method described in Section A. in the NFPA 101 Life Safety Code Guide.
