Traditional theater aisle lighting can often appear dim and muted: making navigating in the dark frustrating and dangerous. Finding your way in a darkly lit cinema just got a lot easier and safer with Ecoglo’s theater aisle lighting!
Andrew Poore, Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of Rockland, Maine’s Flagships Cinemas has discovered the never-ending benefits of Ecoglo’s theater aisle lighting. Flagship uses their own cinema cleaning lights to charge Ecoglo strips between screenings. The Ecoglo stair nosings act as the primary theater aisle lighting provider. Poore says, "The overhead cleaning lights between screenings give Ecoglo enough power to last for an average movie, and it’s working great. The strips get charged up for 15-20 minutes while we’re cleaning the cinemas!”
In 2001, Flagship incorporated Ecoglo’s theater aisle lighting into three of their cinemas. The experiment and process proved both easy and beneficial: "We gave the measurements of what we needed, and it all came pre-cut, ready to install," Poore beamed. "I like the look of it, and there’s no maintenance cost – there’s no chance that a bulb will go and put out the whole strip like you get with electrical path-finding."
So far, using Ecoglo for theater aisle lighting is saving Poore money on monthly costs for electric path-finding: "The monthly electricity bill can be very costly for a facility the size of a theater. If you can reduce that, it’s a help."
For theater aisle lighting in Flagship’s future cinema projects, Poore is definitely going to consider installing Ecoglo. And theater aisle lighting is just the beginning; Ecoglo’s theater aisle lighting strips can also be used as a guide in emergency situations.
