Everything About Self Luminous Exit Signs
Exit signs are useful for a great many things, but cutting costs hasn't necessarily been one of them until recently. It has taken decades for exit signs to show the beginnings of energy efficiency, and even today many of the models available still use traditional light bulbs and continue to draw tens of dollars in electricity costs per year. Needless to say, a number of building owners and property managers with their eye on the bottom line have long hankered for something much less expensive to maintain. Of course, the last thing you would want to do is sacrifice safety for the bottom line. Thankfully, many of exit signs we carry here at The Exit Store offer the ideal solution to this problem: signs that are bright, easy to read, and reliable, but that do not draw nearly as much power from the grid. These days there are a number of ways to address such costs without resorting to anything less than a truly exceptional safety device.
Self-Luminous Exit Signs eliminate operating costs and last up to 20 years
The most efficient and innovative advance to come along in recent years is the self-luminous, or tritium powered exit sign. Better than electrically powered models that require a constant source of electricity, battery replacement, and maintenance checks; self-luminous exit signs consume no power whatsoever while providing bright and constant EXIT illumination. Instead, they use a glowing type of hydrogen gas, called tritium, to remain illuminated day and night, for up to 20 years depending on the model purchased.
Self-luminous exit signs have many advantages. From a new construction standpoint they save the time and cost of running conduit and hiring an electrician to install electrically powered exit signs. For retrofit projects, they are a simple and quick exit sign solution that does not require an invasive installation. In both scenarios, the maintenance, energy, and replacement costs associated with electrically powered exit signs are eliminated and thus there are no operating costs.
Tritium powered signs are a great way to save money while remaining compliant
