ESL Escalate™ Stairwell Luminaire

By Columbia Lighting 
By Columbia Lighting
Escalate™ Stairwell Luminaire (ESL) is an attractive solution to safely and intelligently light your stairwells. Occupancy controlled dimming gives light when you need it, but dims to save energy when the space is unoccupied. Since Escalate offers two lens options and three lengths, you can easily configure Escalate to blend with your space. Additionally, Escalate's continuous light ensures a clean, modern look in your stairwells and access areas.
