UNDERSTANDING THE REGULATION OF SCENE LIGHTING

Vince Lombardi once said, “if you’re not keeping score, you’re only practicing.” We have an open door policy on our scorebook, and are happy to share the raw testing data from our fixtures. At HiViz LED Lighting, we believe in building our business on a solid foundation; this means lots and lots of testing before publishing technical specifications.

GUARDIAN / GUARDIAN ELITE

The optics and circuit board alignment in the Guardian series are designed to shine light straight down the body, as well as out on to the emergency scene. The top row of LEDS provide an ultra-high output beam of light to help you spot mailboxes and address numbers.

A 6,000k color temperature has been selected to help responders differentiate between colors and improve dexterity in low light environments. In patients with difficult to find veins, or presenting with skin discoloration, this color temperature can help rescuers identify differences in color more easily than traditional types of technology.
