Edge-Lit Exit Signs
Edge-Lit Exit Signs are one of the most popular sign choices by architects, lighting designers, and, in general, those looking for an exit sign with a high level of aesthetic appeal. Edge-Lit exit signs are favored for their glowing acrylic EXIT panel, which is illuminated by either red or green LEDs. Edge-Lit exit signs combine powerful EXIT illumination with an attractive design. Most models feature a reliable battery backup system, contained within the housing, that allows the exit sign to remain illuminated for at least 90 minutes during emergency situations where AC electrical power is lost. The Exit Store manufactures and provides a number of Edge-Lit exit sign models, one of which will be right for your application. Our Edge-Lit exit signs begin at less than $60 per unit and come complete with a five-year warranty.
Edge-Lit LED Exit Signs are attractive, efficient, and reliable
One of the first things to consider when deciding what model of Edge-Lit exit sign to purchase is the installation surface and location. Edge-Lit exit signs are suitable for indoor installations onto sheetrock walls and ceilings. Edge-Lit exit signs can also be installed into suspended (plenum) ceilings. The Exit Store offers recess and surface mounted models. Recessed models are favored for their flush mount capability, which allows the housing of the LED strip, circuit board, and battery backup system to be hidden within the wall or ceiling so that only the glowing EXIT panel is visible. Recessed drywall units come with a back box while recessed suspended ceiling units come with a bar hanger kit. Surface mounting Edge-Lit exit signs are capable of universal configuration, they can be installed onto a wall or ceiling by the top, back or side of the unit, using the included mounting plate.

Also consider if you need a single or double sided exit sign. Single sided models are for applications in which the sign is being placed over door, along a corridor, or other situation where the word EXIT needs only to be read from one side. Double sided Edge-Lit exit signs are utilized where EXIT needs to be read from both sides of the sign, an example is if an exit sign is mounted perpendicularly over an exit door in the middle of a hallway where patrons would need to identify the exit from either side. Single sided exit signs feature a clear panel with red or green letters while double sided models feature a mirrored insert that creates the illusion of the sign being translucent from either side. Some of our higher end models feature the ability of a white or mirrored background to be added to a single sided model.
Recessed models work for both drywall and suspended ceiling applicaitons
