Target Exit Device
Can anyone tell me where I can find information on a device called the Target Exit Device. It is used to mark a point of entry or egress. It lights up and emits sound. Rumor has it a truckie from FDNY designed it and there was some info on it in Fire Engineering possibly ( I couldnt find any). THANKS!!

Just to let you know, you're not the only one who's heard of it... but I'll be damned if I can remember where I saw it, possibly FDIC, but I can't recall. Sorry...

Steve, I believe the device in question was designed, and built by a firefighter in Austin, Texas. The one that I have seen is a yellow box with a strobe light on top of it, and a speaker inside. You might try contacting the Austin Fire Department.

You might try to get hold of Iowa-American. I believe I saw the Target Exit Device on their website many months ago. The site has been down for quite some time. Not sure what the status of the company is, I called for a catalog a couple of times and have not received one. The number I have is 1-800-342-IOWA(4692)

We have a Target Exit Device and it looks like it would serve your purposes very well (according to your other post). Send me your email address at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll email you the information. I'll have to dig up the information, so it may take a couple of days.
