EXIT ZERO POWER SIGNS
We offer a full line of Zero Power Exit Signs and Stairwell Identifiers
Electrically powered exit signs use between 2 and 40 watts of power, and contain batteries and circuit boards that are now recognized as hazardous universal wastes by the EPA.
This retrofit allows you to permanently eliminate your entire labor & materials budget associated with your current exit signs. That means no more maintenance, bulb & battery replacements, monthly testing and annual inspections?
We offer a full line zero power exit signs and stairwell identifiers that virtually eliminate the need for hard wired power. These signs use a proprietary advanced photo-luminescent technology, that has been UL certified to meet International Building Code and NFPA standards.
Made in the USA, well over 90 percent of the exit signs being installed in new facilities employ the use of LED (light-emitting diode) technology, using lamps with 2 to 5 watts of power that have an expected service life of 20 to 25 years. Compare these numbers to the popular exit signs of the 1970s and 1980s (they used 20- to 40-watt incandescent and compact-fluorescent lamps with service lives of months, not years) and it’s easy to see how the current emphasis on LED exit signs has evolved.
New Store Design
No electrical connections to engineer, install, or test, so the cost of installation is usually the cost of the sign and the cost of a tradesman (usually not an electrician) to spend 5 to 10 minutes affixing the sign to the building wall or ceiling.
LED vs Glow
On a sign-in-the-box basis, architecturally attractive PL exit signs appear to cost more than lower-end LED exit signs; after factoring in the costs of installing and testing the signs, however, PL exit signs are considerably less expensive than nearly all LED exit signs (at least 40-percent less).
With more effective glow-in-the-dark compounds, PL exit signs are now UL Listed and accepted by the Quincy, MA-based National Fire Protection Association for both high- and low-level exit sign applications. The UL and NFPA recognize that, as long as nearby lighting is on a few minutes before an emergency occurs, PL exit signs are almost always failsafe.
