Fifteen Year Self Luminous Exit Signs
15 Year Self Luminous Exit Sign
If you are looking for long-lasting self luminous exit signs at a mid-range price, 15 year models are the way to go.
But why buy self powered exit signs over thermoplastic LED fixtures? While it's true that LED designs are less expensive, you will be losing money in the long run when electricity and maintenance costs add up.
Self-luminous technology is the true bargain-shopper's choice for easy, electricity-free exit signs that will last a decade and a half.
LED Versus Self Luminous
Let's say you chose the 'cheaper' LED models to light your building. Why not? They're the cheapest quickest solution, but by far not the best.
What happens when you buy electric signs over 15 year SL units:
- Hire an electrician - this will be required in order to install the unit to j-boxes and electrical conduits.
- Hire regular maintenance person - LED signs require monthly and yearly maintenance to ensure they work during an emergency.
- LEDs remain ON at all times - you'll see a significant drain in your building's AC power, especially with multiple units.
- Power draw will leads to higher electrical bills.
- Thermoplastic signs damage quickly, resulting in the need to buy more units.
- LED fixtures only last 8 years.
However, tritium powered exit signs offer a number of advantages:
- Maintenance-free units - you will not need to hire additional maintenance people!
- No wiring - no electrician will have to be hired.
- No electricity - no battery backup, zero bills and zero energy drain.
- Can be used in both indoor and outdoor locations.
- Tamper-proof design can take significant external damage.
- Lasts for 15 years.
