Educating a way to safety

Clevertronics has supplied many Education facility projects, from small scale specialised schools to large open plan learning facilities. As market leaders in emergency lighting solutions, we work closely with key stakeholders in the design, supply, installation and commissioning of emergency lighting systems for a wide variety of education environments. Our world-class expertise in developing emergency and exit lighting solutions, demonstrates our significant understanding of compliance regulations, battery technology, luminaire selection, testing, and monitoring systems.  

Schools and universities are complex facilities where various functions are carried out; therefore, providing a safe and illuminated exit path during an evacuation is paramount. Careful planning is required to specify the right emergency lighting system for your building. One of the key factors to consider is the lifetime of the emergency and exit lighting, as ongoing maintenance and the complexity of compliance can be highly disruptive to the building’s operation. 

Clevertronics has two key ranges to choose from depending on the objectives of your project, such as extending luminaire lifetimes and reducing maintenance costs. Our LP Premium range provides an eight-year lifetime and 50% maintenance saving, whereas our L10 Nanophosphate, offers an incredible 12-year lifetime and 80%+ maintenance saving. Education projects designed with longevity in mind have removed maintenance concerns after installing the L10 Nanophosphate range, as it’s exceptional 12-year lifetime provides both peace of mind and in most cases, eliminates regular maintenance during this period. 

Because of complex site layouts that feature multiple egress paths, a simple automatic testing and monitoring system is required to ensure the emergency lighting is working as expected. Zoneworks (developed by Clevertronics), has long been the system of choice across the Education sector. The latest system upgrade has made the Zoneworks even more powerful, easier to install and operate due to the use of its single controller and no other backbone hardware.  

Zoneworks XT HIVE also enables easy to upgrade of existing sites, extending into new development areas, or offering easy installation when adding new locations. The system utilises a self-dynamic meshing technology that connects lighting across the site. Multi-building Education sites are ideal for HIVE as it can skip from building to building without additional hardware or antennas. Areas sensitive to RF can also be managed through utilising existing powerline technology within the Zoneworks XT family. 

Zoneworks XT HIVE offers the most advanced testing and monitoring system for all education projects. With Zoneworks XT HIVE, testing is completed at the touch of a button, and our complimentary lifetime support is offered to ensure the system is working as specified. 

Clevertronics are world-class specialists in emergency lighting and we have the experience and knowledge to help upgrade or install a new emergency lighting system in your education facility.

City of Oxford College

Energy saving luminaires, long lifetime battery operation, easy networking capabilities and continual regulatory compliance reporting were key priorities for the client. Clevertronics delivered an industry leading L10 Lithium Nanophosphate solution providing 50% longer battery life and reduced maintenance costs over the lifetime of the system. 

Martin Wilson Primary School

Clevertronics were asked to suggest applicable systems to replace Martin Wilson's existing emergency lighting and exit signage. One of the main challenges that the site faced was failing, older battery technologies across their whole estate.

St George's College

Clevertronics were commissioned to deliver a comprehensive emergency lighting solution designed to meet to meet all of the specifications, quality, installation and logistical challenges required by St George's College.

St Mary's

During a routine test of the emergency lighting system at the school, nearly half of the fittings did not meet the requirements and failed a test, mainly in the exterior environment of the premises.

Community College Bishops Castle

The emergency lighting system required replacement to ensure that the building was compliant as the incumbent products were failing and were becoming expensive and difficlult to manage.

What emergency lighting solution is best suited for Education

When considering the best emergency lighting solution for your facility or project it is important to consider two key areas; luminaire lifetime and compliance testing. Increased lifetime will provide lower maintenance costs and automated testing provides fast compliance reporting and reassurance that your life safety devices are in working order.
