The installation of Ansell products didn’t stop with just the Z LED Performance, the contractors took full advantage of the Ansell’s large product offering. As with all venues, emergency lighting is a must requirement and the Guardian LED, Encore LED and IP66 Owl Twin Spot were also selected for installation.
The Guardian a popular choice, being an ultra-slim profile LED polycarbonate self-test bulkhead, with a LiFePO4 Lithium battery providing improved energy consumption, product reliability and lifetime, and supplied with a self-adhesive legend.
