With the holiday season just around the corner, Christmas lights and other bright electrical décor will be on full display – of course, the brighter the lights, the more festive the celebration is. However, safety shouldn’t take the back seat especially during the holidays and this is where Nxled emergency bulb takes center stage.
Homes and establishments rely on emergency lights as their main arsenal against power outages, being that they light up as soon as the power trips.
Nxled, Next Generation Lighting, offers an innovative solution to power failures with the new Nxled 6 Watts Emergency Bulb. This revolutionary bulb works like a normal bulb but better: it can be attached to a regular socket in any part of the house and charges while it’s being used. When a power failure occurs, it will automatically light up, thus switching into emergency lighting!
The Nxled Emergency Bulb, powered by a 3.7V 3000mAh lithium battery, can remain lit for up to 6 hours. It also has the option to be used as a carry-around bulb. It comes with a portable mother socket so you can simply carry it indoors or outdoors.
And because it’s LED, you can save energy and costs by up to 90% compared to a 50 Watt incandescent bulb with the same brightness. It also does not contain mercury and is environment friendly, with an average lamp life of 30,000 hours.
The Nxled emergency bulb comes with a two-year warranty and is now available in leading hardware stores nationwide at an introductory price of PHP 495. Now, how can you not have a happy holiday with that?
Apart from energy conservation, design firms are also concerned about passive design to optimize building efficiency and sustainability.
Three leading design firms in their respective fields, AIDEA Inc., Mañosa and Co., GSN+p Architecture Studio, have teamed up to organize An Introduction to Passive Design in Tropical Countries, happening on November 10 at The Marco Polo in Ortigas Center.
The event aims to raise awareness among architects, interior designers, developers and contractors on the variety of options available in optimizing building efficiency and achieving sustainability.
German professors, Dr. Helmuth Gesch and Dr. Karl Wagner, will be speaking on how Passive Design in Tropical Countries has evolved with the advent of technology and the digital data era. They will be complimented no less by local sustainability champions architects Gelo Mañosa and Liza Crespo who will share their own first hand experiences and best practices in what promises to be an insightful and informative exchange of ideas on Passive Design and how it impacts sustainability initiatives.
The event is also supported by Green Resource Initiatives Phils., SunFish Solar, Thermaire Thermal Hybrid Aircons, Ecosolutions, Biowood, GT Stoneworks, Arkisolutions, Sumometrics, Green Antz and Philippine Geo Green’s Big Ass Fans and McDonald’s.
