The presentation will go through the code requirements in the NEC and NFPA101 as well as recent changes in 2017. Then the speaker will touch on all current products available to the industry including Unit Equipment, Bugeyes, battery packs, Exits and combo units with integral battery. Finally the speaker will cover AC inverters and generators deemed “LIFE SAFETY” discussing the battery count and volume for each.

Speaker: Mark D. Strauss, LC National Sales Manager Signtex Lighting Inc.

Since 1976 Mark Stauss has worked in all aspects of the lighting industry: Manufacturing, wholesale and Agency sectors of the industry.

At Mid-west Chandelier, now LSI Midwest, I literally did every job in the factory from paint line to fabrication, wiring and shipping year 1, year 2 cost studies on the entire line, field service and quotations.

Lithonia Lighting, West Coast Quotations Manager of the fluorescent Division, CED Profit Center manager and rep firms representing every major package finally owning my own agency 2005-2017.

In 2005, an architect called and asked how to reduce batteries in schools, which traditional systems require 20-25 batteries per 10k SQFT of building. I worked with Signtex to help create the Central Battery System W/ Moonlite Fixtures. In 2006 this was the first LED-based distributed low voltage EM Lighting system in the world. And still today the only one in the USA. And 12-30-2017 I sold my agency, Strauss Architectural Systems, to become National Sales Manager at Signtex.

In K-12 education facilities we average 2 -12v batteries for every 20k SQFT of building, Big Box retail 2-12v batteries for every 40K SQFT, and large industrial as much as 65.000 sqft per 2-12v batteries to supply emergency lighting, the system test’s itself, store’s every test ever performed and sends email notifications on each test as well as system event.
