Light Life / Extinguisher pipe

Light Life
Light Life

Light Life is a new innovated extinguisher pipe with luminous signals, which guides firemen and survivors to escape from the burning building quickly and correctly.
At present, people find the correct way to escape by seizing and following the extinguisher pipe, but possibly it may be the wrong way accessing to the burning scene. For this reason, the Light Life guides people to the right way by providing the signal showing “exit” and “arrow”. Absolutely, this design helps people gain more time to escape.
