About Sun-A-Lux Products
Mr. Bolta was recently moved by two major events, 9/11 and the effects of full spectrum lighting and electro-magnetic fields (EMFs) on children in classrooms.
Earlier research has shown a positive effect of full spectrum lighting and reduced electro-magnetic fields (EMFs) on children in the classroom. Therefore full spectrum designs in lighting coupled with reduction of EMFs became his pet project. A not-for-profit foundation for the benefit of improving the environmental impact on children in classrooms is in the works.
9/11 struck and Mr. Bolta was working on some advanced full spectrum afterglow lighting for Trident Nuclear Submarines. Mr. Bolta had met the year before, the Chief of Technical Staff for the Pentagon building and had called him and asked him if he would like Mr. Bolta to work on designing extreme explosion proof lighting for the building. That inspired Mr. Bolta to develop a number of extreme emergency lighting designs to help save lives and enhance the rescue process.
On August 14, 2003 the largest power outage to hit America happened. Millions of people were affected and the use of these new generation extreme emergency lighting products showed their true value.
The development of new technologies is a great asset. The implementation and use of the technologies is a greater asset.
