The True Value of Emergency Lighting Fixtures.

The other day I was watching a show on the World Trade Center attacks that made me think about emergency lighting fixtures.

Exit Strategy

I think airports were designed to trap people. Every time I go to one I get rapped in the maze of gates and thoroughfares. I am forced to eat at those ridiculously expensive restaurants and spend even more time at the security checkpoint. I do not recall ever having seen an exit sign. For those […]
