New Foundation Project - Performance Objectives for Light Sources Used in Emergency Notification Appliances

Blog Post created by mikehazell Employee on May 17, 2011

LEDs and other innovative energy saving lighting technologies (e.g. fluorescents) are rapidly entering the marketplace and present themselves for application to emergency notification appliances.  The existing requirements for the performance and application of visible notification appliances are based on relatively short duration, high peak intensity flashing lights – strobe lights.  The Foundation is initiating a project to develop performance requirements for new light sources used in emergency notification appliances for inclusion in NFPA 72.  If you are interested in participation, please contact kalmand@nfpa.org.
