Dialight’s DuroSite™ LED Visual Signal Lights Enhance Safety, Energy Efficiency on College, University Campuses

Long Life, Durability of LED Technology Makes LED Visual Signal Lights Ideal for Indicating Emergency Call Boxes and Telephones

Farmingdale, NJ (May 10th, 2011) – The safety of students, staff and faculty is a primary concern on college and university campuses across the country. In times of danger or distress, quick access to emergency call boxes and telephones can save a life when mere seconds count.

To help campus safety operations ensure a more secure environment for everyone on campus, DuroSite™ Series LED Visual Signal Lights by Dialight (LSE: DIA.L), the innovative global leader in LED lighting technology, provide an ideal solution for reliable indicator lighting for both indoor and outdoor call boxes and emergency telephone locations, or for safety showers or eye wash stations in laboratory environments.

The most compact, durable signal lights on the market, Dialight’s LED visual indicators deliver at least five years of continuous, worry-free operation with a durable polycarbonate lens that is virtually vandal-proof. This combination of durability and long-life reliability significantly reduces the maintenance time and cost required of traditional signal lighting and virtually eliminates the risk of a light burning out—a serious problem that can prevent an individual in danger from getting the help they need in an emergency.

Dialight’s low-power LED visual signals are up to 90 percent more energy efficient than traditional incandescent technology, consuming just 8 watts of power per unit, compared to 20-100 watts for a typical CFL or incandescent bulb. The energy-efficient design enables colleges and other campus-based organizations to save money on electricity and meet sustainability goals for “greener” operations.

“These highly durable signal units are already proving themselves at one of the most highly-respected Ivy League universities in the country,” said Roy Burton, Dialight’s Group Chief Executive. “With Dialight’s exclusive optics design, these signals are highly visible in virtually any environment for peace of mind and security both indoors and out.”

The compact, jelly-jar style fixtures are designed for easy change out from current conventional fixtures, using all the existing wiring and mounting hardware already in place. For maximum versatility and visibility, the Dialight Visual Signals can be pendant-mounted with or without a junction box, ceiling-mounted, or wall-mounted flush or on a junction box with an optional wall mounting kit.

Unlike CFLs, which are plagued by slow startup and cold temperatures, the Dialight LED Visual Signals feature instant on/off response and can be used in conjunction with a new or existing timer or photocell for dusk-to-dawn operation and added energy efficiency.

The Dialight LED Visual Signals are available in red, green, white, yellow and blue—the most common color for campus safety applications. The fixtures are also available in FAA-qualified versions for compliant obstruction lighting; the white model is certified for use in Class I Div 2 hazardous locations.
