Managing a fleet of exit signs shouldn’t be a burden, but that’s what it can become.  In larger facilities, there’s always a failed sign to be replaced.

Finding himself in that situation, Nazzareno Marchionda of Melbourne Business School started searching for a way to do it differently.

“I was conscious of how much time and effort was being spent replacing failed exit signs. It wasn’t commercially viable to keep replacing failed battery exit signs with the same technology, so I began searching for a better way.”

That decision led to Nazzareno discovering Australian company Safety Path, which is leading the way with battery-free exit sign technology to give organisations a more sustainable option than existing exit sign technologies.

“I needed a fully- compliant safety technology with reduced failure rates and lower maintenance costs. Finding a more sustainable technology that eliminated a major source of eWaste and reduced our emissions made this a simple solution to a maintenance headache.”

Ange Lamantia of Safety Path explained, “We’ve replaced electric-batteries in exit signs with the highest-performing photoluminescent technology available. Melbourne Business School selected a model with an integrated high-efficiency LED, so that the signs are internally illuminated and the photoluminescence charged ready for any emergency when the power fails.”

Sustainability is integral to every business and an Australian company developing a sustainable and compliant technology in a highly regulated market is a benefit in terms of service and support. The simple change to Safety Path exit sign technology reduces eWaste, power consumption and maintenance costs. And when the saving in each individual sign is multiplied across the hundreds of signs in large facilities like Melbourne Business School, it makes commercial and environmental sense.
