Self luminous exit signs can be used both indoors and outdoors; since they do not require electricity they are inherently waterproof. They can be configured for single or double-face applications and all models come with a sturdy aluminum mounting bracket for top or side mounting.

Tritium Exit Sign Technology

The technology that illuminates our self-powered exit signs is quite interesting. Here is how it works; tritium gas, an isotope of hydrogen, is enclosed into shatterproof glass tubes which are arranged to spell "EXIT". The tritium gas glows green and can be seen from more than 100 feet away in total darkness. The tritium tubes are enclosed in a vandal-resistant thermoplastic housing and clear polycarbonate face shield. Tritium exit signs have gained popularity over the last 30 years because they eliminate the need for an electrician and have no maintenance costs for their entire lifespan.

Importance of Exit Signs

Exit signs are required to be installed into all types of facilities and buildings throughout North America. All of our self illuminated exit signs are UL 924 Listed and approved for use in the United States and Canada. Self illuminated tritium powered exit signs are the most reliable exit lighting solution today and are accepted by all fire marshals and building inspectors around the country.

Many of our potential customers are looking for battery operated exit signs, which unfortunately do not exist. The batteries inside electrical exit signs are for backup purposes only. Battery powered exit signs can never exist because the battery would die and have no way to recharge without being hard-wired. So, the solution is self luminous exit signs!

Our Products

Self luminous exit signs are also known as self powered exit signs or tritium exit signs. These synonymous names all refer to the same product. Since tritium gas is an isotope of hydrogen, these signs are sometimes also referred to as nuclear exit signs or radioactive exit signs. To some this might cause alarm, but the truth is that these signs are completely safe, are regulated by the US and Canadian governments, and are suitable for all types of exit sign applications.

Tritium Powered Light Source

All self luminous exit signs operate using Tritium, an isotope of hydrogen that has natural illumination properties; there is no requirement to connect it with any electric source or have a battery backup. These non-electric, self illuminating exit signs are easy to install and there are no maintenance or operating costs such as those associated with conventional electrically powered exit signs. Certified and approved by the Underwriters Laboratories (UL), there will never be issues with code compliance.

Advantages to Self Luminous Exit Signs

The Tritium within our self luminous exit signs is sealed within shatterproof glass tubes and housed within polycarbonate casing which is impact resistant and tamper resistant. With different frame and face color choices, we have a sign that will look attractive in any interior. Tritium glows a bright green and can be seen from up to 125 feet away.

Self luminous exit signs come in a 10, 15, or 20 year lifespan. The 10 and 20-year lifespan models are always in stock and offered at wholesale prices. Place your order by 4pm EST and it will ship the same day! Self luminous exit signs signs are affordable options in both new construction and retrofit projects as there simple installation eliminates the cost of hiring an electrician.

Most customers look for battery operated signage to ensure safe evacuation during an emergency but the fact remains that there are no truly battery-operated EXIT signs. The batteries that are within electric exit signs are simply for emergency backup purposes, they will not remain illuminated for more than 90 minutes. Essentially, our self powered signs are “battery powered”, it’s just that the battery is the Tritium, which lasts for up to 20 years.

Differences in Self Luminous Exit Signs

When choosing a model, consider the how long the building will be in use to decide on the lifespan to order. If the building or facility will operate more than 10 years, choose a 20 year lifespan so that after 10 years, the signs do not have to be replaced – this saves time and money in the future.

Red, green, and black face color choices are standard. White or black frame color choice is standard. We also offer self luminous exit signs with white face color, but for these models we must use more tritium to meet UL standards so they are slightly more expensive.

Lastly, choose between a single or double-sided sign. For applications where EXIT will need to be visible from either direction, usually in a hallway or other corridor, select a double-sided model. For wall (back) mount applications, typically seen over an exit door, a single sided model is suitable. Both types come with an aluminum mounting bracket that allows you to install the exit sign in the manner that you decide.
