  • SARGuide is illuminated utilizing the patented FLATLITE® electroluminescent lamp embedded within the LEXAN touch pad insert and base (no exposed components)

  • Supplements building exit signs required by code

  • UL Listed for use on panic (UL 305) and fire-rated (UL10C) exit devices

  • SARGuide can be wired for continuous operation (always on), or can be wired into fire alarm system for operation only when alarm is activated

  • Dual voltage: 24 VAC or VDC input from SARGENT (or other) power supply with battery back-up

  • Available with mechanical, and many electro-mechanical, exit devices

  • Lexan insert is easily field reversible. Specify hand when ordering

  • Other verbage available with the lamp product upon request (special order)

  • Lamp replacement kit available. Three to four year life under continuous operation. Light life increases with intermittent use. Lamp brightness will degrade over time. Electroluminescence does not degrade over extended periods of non-use

  • SARGuide can be used as a stand alone feature or as an integral part of E-Lite Technologies' E-Lume-A-PathTM Egress Path Marking System. E-Lume-A-Path enhances the ability of a person to escape a building by illuminating the path to safety through existing exits. The system will respond to a power outage or fire alarm signal and consists of a strip of FLATLITE electro-luminescent lamp at the floor level that can go down hallways, around corners and stairwells, hundreds of feet in length. It can help supplement currently required Egress equipment such as Exit Signs and Emergency Lights, which may have limited effectiveness when building occupants do not know the location of secondary exits.
