Established in 1997, Ecoglo International designs and manufactures NCC compliant exit signs and emergency lighting products to meet the requirements of BCA Vol 1 E4.8 Design and Operation of Exit Signs and EP4.1 Visibility in an Emergency.
Ecoglo designs and manufactures photoluminescent exit signs and emergency visibility products using a patented process known as High Temperature Curing (HTC). This produces highly durable photoluminescent materials that are then incorporated in sustainable, fail-safe and cost effective emergency lighting and signage systems.
The Sydney Olympics were the first Olympics to actively integrate sustainable building solutions into its facilities and Ecoglo was able to develop an aisle lighting system for the arena.
Research and development has focused on refining Ecoglo’s patented manufacturing process to produce products that have superior durability, rapid charging and predictable visibility.
Ecoglo’s patented products have been used worldwide in facilities as varied as the Melbourne Cricket Ground, New York’s Jazz at Lincoln Center, Singapore Supreme Court, Toronto’s Eaton Centre, London’s Bond St Underground Station and Dubai’s 160 floor Burj Khalifa.
By harvesting sunlight or recycling the existing light in a building, Ecoglo products provide sustainable and cost effective building solutions. The solutions are failsafe, operate immediately and do not require ongoing maintenance.
As well as reducing electricity usage, Ecoglo products incorporate recycled aluminium, are non-toxic and non-radioactive. Being very durable they will last the life of the facility and can then be readily recycled.
International Building Codes are changing to recognise such products as not only do they contribute to effective emergency lighting systems, but are also environmentally friendly and economical. Alongside Australia, countries such as New Zealand, USA, Canada and Japan have all adopted this technology into their respective Building Codes.
