ETAP’s IF award-winning architectural range of exits is minimal by design. The K9 will not be obtrusive on any interior space and as such will enhance the interior design. ETAP offers 4 standard finishes – matte-white, grey, matte-black and raw aluminium as well as custom finishes on request. The K9 is not a universal mounting exit system as each product in this range has been carefully designed specifically to compliment interiors, offering up to 5 different mounting solutions to meet your project.
The K9 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 testing indicator are discreetly displayed on the exit housing.
All ETAP exits and emergencies come with NiMH (Nickel-Metal Hydride) batteries as standard. When cadmium batteries were banned, ETAP switched to NiMH on their entire emergency lighting range. Not only are they cadmium-free, they also consume less energy and are 50% more compact. Lithium has been proven to be unstable in heat, flammable and harder to recycle at the end of the battery life cycle. ETAP offer LFP (Lithium Iron Phosphate) batteries with a 10 year warranty on request.
