GuideLed SL CG-S - Central battery safety luminaire

Despite a compact construction and low connected loads, the LED GuideLed safety luminaires proves a match for the more watt-intensive fluorescent lamp luminaires when it comes to achievable spacing distances for standardised illumination in accordance with EN 1838.

Optics are specially developed for emergency lighting requirements guide the light either longitudinally along the escape route or else homogeneously over a very large area.

Characterised by an unobtrusive, discreet appearance, GuideLed SL is available in a range of options including surface or recessed mounting, square or circular style and wide or narrow beam.


  • Unobtrusive design through optics integrated in the luminaire
  • Special asymmetric optics for illumination of 5 lx vertically for first aid stations, fire fighting equipment and  safety equipment acc. to EN 1838
  • Suitable for mounting heights up to 5.6 m above the illuminated equipment
  • The illuminated area has a width of up to 2.8 m.
  • Minimum service requirement due to high service life of the LEDs (up to 50,000 hours)

Latest news and insights

Three design concepts: recessed, surface and flat

There are three safety luminaires suitable for the design concept of the GuideLed exit luminaires: With its 1.5 mm high frame, the GuideLed built-in variant is almost flush with the ceiling. 

On account to the radii oriented to the main direction, the surface-mounted variant GuideLed SL is inconspicuous with it's 32 mm in height. Both the recessed and the surface-mounted version are available with especially narrow beam optics.They allow mounting heights of up to 30 m.

The extremely flat GuideLed FSL stands out for its lightguide technology, highly precise micro-prism optics and an especially uniform anti-glare shielded light exit surface.

Special refractive optics

Guide SL comes in two light distributions harmonised precisely to the two requirements of safety illumination. The refractive optics guide the light either longitudinally along the escape route or uniformly across the surface.

High optical power

Despite their small structural shapes, the LED shape luminaires are on a level with the fluorescent lamps with much higher wattage. At a mounting height of 3m, luminaire spacings of up to 16m and/or maximum mounting heights up to 10 m can be realised.

Discreet modern design for a high quality finish

The GuideLed SL range is the choice for buildings and architects that want a contemporary, unobtrusive finish from emergency lighting that doesn't detract from the style of the building. Illustrated through the demanding requirements set out through the range's development, ensuring maximum surface mounting construction heights of only 36mm and recessed installation depths of only 40mm.

Keeps going for up to 50,000 hours

Utilising the latest LED technology the full GuideLed SL range features a life service of up to 50,000 hours - reducing the longterm cost and need for maintenance.

Requirements of EN 1838: illuminance of 5 lx for safety equipment

The aim of emergency lighting is to enable people to exit a room or
building safely. It must also ensure that fire fighting and safety equipment can be easily found and operated when needed. This equipment includes (but not exclusively):

  • First aid stations
  • All fire fighting equipment and all alarm devices

Lighting is required near each first aid kit, near each alarm and piece of fire fighting equipment, as well as each sign indicating a fire alarm system. In accordance with EN 1838, "near" generally means a distance of no greater than 2 metres, measured horizontally (this corresponds with distance a in the diagram below). The required level of illuminance on the equipment is 5 lx measured vertically – i.e. perpendicular to the usual horizontal illuminance measurements on one level. In comparison to the escape route requirement for 1 lx horizontally, different requirements apply in this situation for the light distribution from the safety luminaires, due to the flatter light angle of incidence.

GuideLed SL 13051.1 and 13052.1 CG-S meet the specific requirements of EN 1838

In order to meet the requirements of EN 1838, the new GuideLed
SL 13051.1 and 13052.1 CG-S have special optics to guarantee the required illuminance of 5 lx vertically over a wide area. Hence mounting at heights of up to 5.6 m, and a breadth of illumination of up to 2.8 metres, are possible.
