Background

- White

- Black

- Brushed Aluminum

- Painted Bronze (Sometimes)

Standard colors can be limited

We offer the option to custom color many of our architectural produts

Many reasons why this happens

- Branding

- Device color matching

- Environmental

I. CUSTOM COLORS

Architectural Emergency Lights

Architectural lights are simple as they don't impact the usage/visibility of the product

Our custom color options are generally limited to our concealed emergency lights

This is actually very common for us

- You can actually wallpaper theses "Genie" products

I. CUSTOM COLORS

Exit Signs

People don't realize this is an option...

We offer this feature in a number of our products, including:

ISOLITE

FLYING COLORS

Chalk Talk

ELT

PG

LPDC

LPDC-HD

LPX

TL2.0

DTH

DTH2

We could do it on the other products if required for a larger job

But exit signs have some caveats with their custom colors

I. CUSTOM COLORS

But What About Code?

- Custom color really just refers to the mounting

Edge Lit Exit Signs

Die Cast Exit Signs

No issue at all, ever

The custom coloring doesn't change the relationship between the legend and the background

A bit more care has to be taken

The custom coloring does change the relationship between the legend and the background

II. CODE RAMIFICATIONS

Those Pesky Standards...

- The test is run with the lights off!

- The testing is done for the benefit of what happens when there's a power outage

Observational Visibility Tests

All custom color exit signs actually pass this test!

Failed Maintenance Observational Visibility Tests

To account for the fact that many people fail to maintain exit signs, there's a second test

ISOLITE

The same as the above test, but the sign is off and the room is lit to a standard level

Dark greens and dark reds are off limits (unless a contrasting legend was used)

II. CODE RAMIFICATIONS

NFPA 101

Every sign required ... shall be located and of such size, distinctive color and design that it is readily visible and shall provide contrast with decorations, interior finish, or other signs.  No decorations, furnishing, or equipment that impairs visibility of a sign shall be permitted.

III. WRAP-UP ITEMS

LMIGN

- NiMH battery for EM version (90-minute standard runtime)

- Black added as a standard color

- Recessed backbox is smaller (matches the MIGN2)

We're discontinuing the LMIGN and creating the LMIGN2 in it's place

An email has already gone out, but I wanted to touch on this

Turning this into a new product isn't my favorite way to deal with things like this but we have UL obligations that limit flexibility

Key differences between the product

We are a bit backlogged, we're working on getting product out the door
