When lives and safety are first and foremost, every detail is crucial. At night, those details become even more challenging. Conventional lighting can be harsh, producing hard shadows and glare. That’s when the bright yet soft, white glow and 360° illumination of European Tech Center’s state-of-the-art ILS UNIT can make a huge difference. Five to six times more energy efficient, and nearly twice that with an ECO generator on portable units, ILS is the best lighting solution available today. www.etcna.net. (248) 217-1945.
