Way Out Evacuation Systems were the successful tenderers on the new State of the Art Melbourne Rectangular Stadium being built in the Melbourne Park precinct by Grocon Constructors.
Way Out not only won the luminous stair nosing and aisle identification numbers contract on price but by having the ability to colour coordinate the anti slip insert unlike the standard carborundum inserts which are dark grey and very abrasive if you have the misfortune to take a tumble.
The Melbourne Olympic Park Trust (MOPT) has chosen safety yellow in this case which gives an Australian flavour alongside the green seats. Other stadium operators have enquired as to the viability of matching the insert with the seats and entrance doors e.g. red door, red seats and red insert South end whereas blue door, blue seats and blue insert could be North entrance. You could even use the colours of the home team if you wanted to be patriotic.
The luminous numbers ensure patrons can be easily directed to their seats with a minimum of fuss even when the lights are low during a night event.
Way Out have been involved in most of the major projects in Australia involving photo luminescent materials and is witnessing first hand the increased usage as more and more clients are realizing their many benefits.
