As part of the general lighting project, LMG specified Mackwell’s emergency lighting system for installation on all seven floors of the building. The company selected a combination of Mackwell’s XYLUX® LR4 emergency luminaires and XY-VEX LED exit signs. XYLUX® LR4 is a non-maintained luminaire and XY-VEX is available as either maintained or non-maintained, with both being utilised as part of the Wilmott Dixon installation. The XYLUX® LR4 features specifically designed snap-in optics and its compact design makes it ideal for a variety of interior applications including corridors, stairwells and open plan office space. Each lamp head on the XYLUX® LR4 contains an integrated bi-colour indicator system and test switch and 500mm wiring loom, whilst recessed mounting brackets allow for quick and easy on-site installation.
Mackwell’s XY-VEX architectural 3 hour LED exit signs, in both maintained and non-maintained versions, designed for fast fix installations that allows wiring to be complete before decoration, were also chosen for the project. Available with a choice of technology options which includes DALI, the XY-VEX incorporates high performance LEDs to provide a 50,000 hour life.
The entire emergency system is powered and monitored by Mackwell’s N-light® EC, an intelligent low-voltage LED emergency panel that provides a central component for powering and commissioning Mackwell’s emergency lighting systems. N-light® EC works in harmony with all of the general lighting in the building, which is also powered via category cable.
N-light® EC is a fast and simple approach to installing emergency lighting as all products are connected via a plug-in category cable, eliminating wiring errors and N-light® software assists in the commissioning phase and simple reporting of the emergency system. This reduces the impact on personnel and resources as N-light® software provides the ability to setup automatic testing and reporting to ensure the system is maintained and monitored in line with the latest safety standards and regulations.
