THE LIGHT THAT SAVES LIVES
Where there’s fire, there’s smoke. And where there’s smoke there’s darkness. In a fire, disorientation, panic, and confusion quickly set in.
The LinearStrobe™ gives you, your family and rescue personnel a guiding light to safety during fires or other emergency situations.
The LinearStrobe™ has been specially developed to mark the route and emergency exit and offers two key improvements on standard signals: a flashing light and path illumination along the floor.
The LinearStrobe™ Technology, in all of its forms, was recently granted the U.S. Dept. of Homeland Security’s SAFETY Act Science & Technology Directorate “Designation” as a “Qualified Anti-Terrorism Technology (QATT) Please Visit: https://www.safetyact.gov
VISIBLE FROM ANY APPROACH & ALWAYS BELOW THE SMOKE LAYER
SEE AN EXIT SIGN
Only 38% of people follow evacuation routes using the statutory EXIT signs during an emergency in an unfamiliar building.
Since the familiar green icon has become so usual and commonplace to most people, it scarcely provides any clear directions during an evacuation.
RECOGNISE FLASHING DIRECTIONS
During emergencies, every second counts and pulsating light can reduce the time taken to reach an emergency exit by a significant amount.
As the escape route marking only lights up when there is an actual emergency, 77% of people immediately recognize the illuminated route as a safe way out.
CHOOSE A FLASHING BEAM OF LIGHT
Since 99% of people immediately understand what flashing lights mean, they choose the illuminated route right away. In all other cases, most people fail to take the shortest evacuation route during an emergency. Despite the fact that it takes longer and there may be suffocating smoke, people still choose the way they came in, even though the familiar route might be a fatal one.

Fire Fighters Deserve the LinearStrobe™
Each year, tens of thousands of firefighters are injured while fighting fires, rescuing people, responding to hazardous materials incidents, and training for their job.
Regardless of the model or type of LinearStrobe™, when firefighters arrive at a structure fire, chances are that they have never been in the space before. In those critical moments while they are maneuv-ering in and out of those unfamiliar surroundings, all types of the LinearStrobe™ can provide them with a visual signal that identifies the exit exactly when and precisely where they need it most.
“In a fire, you will be dealing with a wide range of unfamiliar problems ranging from total darkness, thick smoke that causes choking, panic, and disorientation. Smoke detectors, while a great safety device, only alerts you to the fire, they don’t help you find your way out alive. The LinearStrobe will take away the confusion and show you and your family the way to safety. This product is one of the best I’ve seen, it will save lives, and it is in my home.”
“It is difficult to describe what it feels like to be in a burning building and not be able to find the exit. Most everyone has been in the dark looking for a light switch at some point. Imagine looking for a door or a window while being blinded by smoke and not being able to breathe. This product can give civilians and rescue personnel the advantage of having a visible way out; that just might make the difference between life or death.”
“I can’t believe this has not been developed sooner. When smoke fills a hallway or room and the alarms go off, the LinearStrobe actually outlines the exit doorway making it apparent to the most panic-stricken person. It is a shape that almost anyone can recognize as a means of escape!”
“I think the LinearStrobe is a very innovative device that is destined to save lives. The fear that grips people inside a burning building can cause people to become disoriented. The LinearStrobe gives them a landmark to regain their sense of direction. It is a simple solution to a problem that has plagued the fire protection industry for years.”
