Ecoglo's superior brightness ensures safe passage for patrons, saves on energy costs compared to alternative lighting systems

BALTIMORE, Md. (March 10, 2009) - The technology supporting Ecoglo is environmentally friendly, saving greatly on energy costs compared to traditional power-supplied emergency lighting systems.

Ecoglo, the latest in emergency and path-finding photoluminescent systems, is appearing at Building Operating Management's NFMT 2009. Ecoglo can be found at booth #273 in the Baltimore Convention Center.

"We're very excited about our line of Ecoglo products because, in addition to being highly effective, durable and long-lasting, they are proven to be environmentally safe and friendly," said David Murray, vice president of sales and marketing for Access Products, Inc., the Buffalo, N.Y.-based firm that manufactures and distributes Ecoglo products in North America.

Energy-efficient Ecoglo systems require no additional electricity while emitting a steady, highly visible green glow that safely guides people in stairwells and aisles in any type of building, including a wide range of entertainment facilities.

"The principles behind Ecoglo's patented 'green' technology are really very simple," Murray said. "The active photoluminescent element absorbs natural or artificial light and then re-emits the light to quickly guide people to safety under any conditions." Ecoglo products are non-radioactive and non-toxic.

Murray explained that unlike some competitors' products, "The technology supporting Ecoglo was not adapted from novelty items or signage. Our Ecoglo products are built with a high-grade aluminum metal base and the high-visibility photoluminescent strip is bonded to the metal at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for long-lasting durability. They are designed to be walked on, even the signs."

Ecoglo's built-in photoluminescent strips quickly become charged and will continue to glow in the event of a power outage until all the absorbed energy is exhausted. Ecoglo's high brightness design ensures that it will be visible to people in a darkened stadium or high-rise building for hours following a blackout, allowing sufficient time for egress.

As for cost, Murray pointed out, "There are many issues associated with using the traditional form of stairway egress lighting. It becomes costly to not only run these lights all day, but to also pay the high costs of regular maintenance."

Access Products, Inc.'s Ecoglo systems currently are installed in stadiums, arenas, performing art centers and movie theatres in Australia, Canada, India, New Zealand, the United Kingdom and the U.S. Ecoglo has been installed at numerous locations in the U.S., including the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, Md.; Tulsa Convention Center, Tulsa, Okla.; Coral Springs Center for the Arts, Coral Springs, Fla.; Denver Coliseum, Denver, Col.; Arizona State University, Tempe, Ariz., and San Jose State University, San Jose, Calif.
