Exit signs are used to help guide occupants of a business facility to an exit for use during an emergency that requires evacuation. Exit signs are illuminated in either red or green lettering, and state “EXIT” over a doorway within the business that leads to the outside. OSHA requires that most businesses install these signs within their facility in order to meet safety regulations and requirements.
Self Powered Exit Signs are simply exit signs that do not require an external power source to operate. Self powered exit signs are able to provide business owners with cost efficient operation and installation for business owners, while still providing the required level of safety that is required by OSHA and building fire code standards.
The types and benefits of self powered exit signs: glow in the dark and tritium-powered.
Glow in the dark exit signs provide up to 25 years of illumination without the need for electricity. Glow in the dark exit signs provide easy installation and operation – using no electricity and requiring no wiring to the sign itself. Glow in the dark exit signs are able to save the business owner a good amount of money over a period of time versus the electrical exit sign.
Tritium powered exit signs are another type of self luminous exit sign that uses a radioactive material within the fixture known as “tritium” – which is a radioactive gas that uses other gases within the bulb to provide the business with exit sign illumination for up to 25 years. Tritium powered exit signs are very easy to install, and also require no wiring.

An affordable alternative to self powered exit signs: the LED exit sign.
The LED exit sign is not a self powered exit sign model, but does use just 5 watts of electricity during operation. The LED exit sign model is a very energy efficient and affordable method of providing exit sign illumination. LED exit signs create a stylish and unique glowing effect for many businesses at a fraction of the cost of most electrical exit sign models. These units also begin at only $20. In addition, the LED exit sign provides consistent illumination even during a power failure – with the battery backup system that is located within the exit sign.
