Secure evacuation at emergency –
Security for planner and operator

Ambition of a good fire protection plan is optimized defense of human lives. By planning of escape ways, luminaires have to be assembled, which lead the fugitive into secure regions or proximately out-of-doors.

VDE examination standards
Many manufacturers advert to the VDE- standards when manufacturing and building luminaires. Admittedly those luminaires are proofed and certificated in exceptional cases.  Because self- proofed luminaires can never achieve the high quality- standards, we have developed our luminaire KL 10 in cooperation with the VDE and subsequently let them accredit.

By using our luminaires KL 10, planner and operator can rely on using the accredited most secure luminaires. Because of our sign of approval it is guaranteed that the duty of care is not infringed.
