ETAP K1 Slim Surface mounted Emergency
The K1 slim Surface mounted emergency lighting are small and sleek. ETAP’s Emergency whilst being the smallest surface mounted Emergency, still holds the Emergency optics as well as the testing indicators. The K1 Surface mounted Emergency has integral gear and batteries. ETAP offer 2 optics for optimal performance – Anti-panic lens distributes the LED lighting in a square distribution for even Emergency illumination and Escape route being an elongated beam for passages, corridors etc. The Escape route lens will give a long 19.2m beam (based on 2.7m ASNZ2293 tables) allowing designers to use less Emergency lighting, subject to ASNZ2293-18 guidelines. The K1 range is manufactured from impact resistant polycarbonate. The sleek housing is IP42 and robust IK04 rated. The K1 range has been designed for the project market with all the smart Emergency optics, testing facilities offered in the K9 range. The K1 polycarbonate housing is an attractive matt white.
The K1 offers “ESM” monitored testing or “EST+” comprehensive self-testing. The EST+ runs regular tests on function, LED function and with a built in light sensor, EST+ will ensure the light output is to ASNZ2293 requirement of 9 Candela, battery duration tests and function. between 2 – 4 times a year the battery is drained to 90 minutes and recharged for duration testing and battery health. The face plate has a small indicator to alert building maintenance of the product function.
All ETAP Exits and Emergencies come with NiMH (nickel-Metal Hydryde) batteries as standard. When Cadmium Batteries were banned, ETAP switched to NiMH on their entire Emergency lighting range. Not only are NiMH batteries cadmium-free, they also consume less energy and are 50 % more compact. Lithium has been proven to be unstable in heat and flammable plus harder to recycle at the end of the battery life. ETAP offer Lithium Iron Phosphate with a 10 year warranty on request.
