Emergency lighting wins sustainability award

Wednesday, 30 July, 2008


The Legrand Slide Connect G2 emergency exit sign has won the Award for Excellence in Sustainable Design at the 2008 Australian International Design Awards.

Designed and manufactured in Australia, the product is an emergency lighting and exit sign that uses a single high-brightness LED (HB-LED) with custom-designed optics.

The result is a greener solution for commercial and industrial emergency lighting that uses up to 70% less energy than a conventional fluorescent system.

Judges were impressed with the overall quality and ‘smartness’ of the design, including the ease in which it can be retrofitted to existing Legrand exit signs.

Eduardo Yudowski, HPM Legrand national category manager, said the win was a fantastic achievement.

“This is the result of teamwork, with research and development, marketing and sales all supporting this innovation. As an industry-leading developer and manufacturer, Legrand is continually working to apply cutting-edge technology to usable applications,” he said.
