Terrorist-Proof Lighting—When the Power Fails, Never Be in the Dark With New Shatter-Proof Light Bulb Technology from American Environmental Products, Inc.

Leading environmental lighting designer and Academy Award winner develops state-of-the-art, 100% bomb-proof fluorescent emergency lighting that glows for up to 12 hours after the power goes off.

Fort Collins, CO—(July 13, 2005)—On Thursday, July 7, 2005, a terrorist attack shut down the London transportation system and put the United States and other worldwide transportation systems on high alert.

American Environmental Products, Inc. (AEP), in a move to help ensure uninterrupted illumination in critical interior areas such as subways, stairwells, elevators, basements and tunnels, etc., has announced its latest new innovation in serving the emergency lighting needs of an increasingly safety and security-minded public. AEP has developed a bomb-proof bulb that glows in the dark, literally, when the power has been turned off (even if the bulb breaks).

AEP Founder Charles Bolta and lighting designer and Academy Award winner Don Northrop, in response to the 9-11 terrorist attacks, developed shatter-proof Glow-Lux™ Emergency Afterglow Lighting. The shatter-proof Glow-Lux™ is a new, patented fluorescent light bulb technology. The bulbs remain glowing for up to 12 hours after a loss of power, providing emergency illumination in low-light and no-power conditions. Even if the bulb is broken in the event of an explosion, the glass pieces will continue to emit light, maximizing this emergency light bulb to its greatest potential. Additionally, when charged, the bulb can be removed from the fixture and will continue to glow, and can be used as a portable emergency light source.

The bulbs combine a newly patented proprietary scotopic phosphor blend with a non-radioactive after-glow phosphor blend that provides illumination, helping the human eye adapt more quickly to sudden low-light conditions in an emergency power outage.

"The Glow-Lux™ emergency bulb is designed to help increase visual acuity, enhance full-spectrum color correctness, maximize energy efficiency, provide a level of illumination for a period of time even when the power is shut off, and improve emergency response time in which the eye can adapt more quickly to low light conditions," says Bolta.

"Employees and customers can be in many different places in a building when an emergency strikes," says Bolta, who has worked on lighting projects for NASA, MIT, the Pentagon, Bechtel, Disneyland, General Mills, Sears, William McDonough and Partners, and others. "Traditional battery-powered backup lighting systems may not work in these areas, and they can be costly and require frequent maintenance. In the event of an explosion, they can fail. Glow-Lux™ bulbs provide 100% bomb-proof protection. You can always count on Glow-Lux™ bulbs to emit light, even in the most dire of circumstances."
