In the market for exit signs? Not sure where to start? Exit Sign Warehouse can help you with any questions or concerns you might have.
Whether you need one exit sign or one hundred exit signs, Exit Sign Warehouse can help you get the right signs at the best price. All of our exit signs are code compliant, in stock and ready to ship. When considering an exit sign you have a few choices. You can either go electrical or non electrical. If you choose to go electrical you can choose between LED or LEC technology. Both are energy efficient but LEC is ultra energy efficient using only 1/4 of a watt of electricity costing only cents a year to operate.
If you choose to go non electrical your choices are either photoluminescent or nuclear. Please check with your state regulations or contact a representative at Exit Sign Warehouse before you decide to purchase one of these signs. While the majority of states allow for the use of both of these signs certain states will not accept these as code compliant exit signs.
The cheapest and most affordable exit signs which are still code compliant and energy efficient are the standard LED exit signs. These exit signs must be hard wired into the buildings electrical and are equipped with a battery backup inside the sign that will activate in the event of a power failure. Prices for the LED and LEC exit sign can range from $15 to $200 depending on the design and features of the exit sign.
If there is no electricity in the area where you need to place your sign or you simply decide you don't want any monthly electrical fees or installation costs then your are looking at either the photoluminescent exit sign or tritium exit signs. The photoluminescent exit sign or glow in the dark exit sign requires that there be 5 foot candles of light on the face of the sign at all times during building occupancy. There are no maintainenece fees or recycling fees for this sign and with proper care it can last a life time. The tritium or nuclear exit sign has no requirements on lighting and can be hung in almost any environment. This sign uses a nuclear isotope called tritium which is vacuum sealed in small clear tubes and then embedded in the exit sign. This is the exit sign that you find in the majority of all movie theaters and parking garages across the county. The sign comes in a 10, 15 or 20 year version. Even though the sign is completely safe to use it does contain a nuclear chemical so the sign must be recycled at the end of its life span.
