Velare® Concealed Achitectural Emergency Lighting, city of Chicago Approved

Provides 90 minutes of illumination for the rated wattage upon the loss of AC power. Ideal for applications that require ensconced emergency lighting in wall or ceiling.

Trim and door housing panels are finished in durable white textured powder coated paint. Can be wallpapered or field- painted. Trim and panel doors lay flush with mounting surface. No exposed hardware. Low-profile recessed test switch and status indicator configuration minimizes exposed interfaces. Rugged, 22-gauge galvanized steel box with three 3/4" knock-outs. Galvanized bar hangers span up to 30" on center.
