We had to ensure that the illuminations were clear, cost-effective and within the scope of the existing BSI safety criteria. As a result, much of this project focused on research, prototyping and testing. This was particularly challenging as our product created a new category of emergency signage that did not have its own safety assessment procedure. We had to work to existing standards for passive signage as well as setting the benchmark for all future dynamic products.
Within this project, we designed many different products to fill the various needs of the market and some custom designs for tunnels and hotels. Each had their unique challenges, including keeping the lighting consistent across the range and innovating in the market whilst creating something that would still be familiar to installers. These must be long-lasting and retrofit into current locations with their fire systems.
