ETAP K9 Recessed Emergency Lighting with optics.
The K9 recessed emergency lighting are small and sleek the size is determined by the Emergency gear needed to fit into the plaster ceiling. ETAP’s beautifully curved Emergency flange hold the Emergency optics as well as the testing indicators. 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 K9 has 2 different shapes to choose from in design – Square or round. The K9 range has a standard range of powder coat finishes Matt White, Grey, Matt black and raw aluminum. Custom finishes are available to ensure the K9 will blend with your interior ceiling.
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 face plate has a small indicator to alert building maintenance of the product function.
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 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.
