Hurricane Proof Self Luminous Exit Signs
Weather Resistant Self Luminous Exit Sign
Hurricanes are a big problem for those of us living on the East Coast. These huge swirling storms can easily be seen from space and are often larger than the state of Florida when measured from the eye to the outer edge of the vortex. Self luminous exit signs can be a real help in these storm-prone areas.

Hurricanes blow winds at over 100mph and usually leave at least a few fatalities before the storm ceases. These tropical storms also leave thousands of seriously injured people, billions of dollars worth of damage and a crippled transportation system.
Another side-effect of most hurricanes, especially Category 1 and Category 2 storms, is city-wide brownouts and blackouts. These power failures can last a day or almost a month in some cases. More commonly, towns that have just endured these powerful cyclones will have intermittent power losses over the course of weeks.
Most emergency lights and exit signs require battery backups to keep them running during such power failures. However, they only last up to 90 minutes, which is only the minimum amount of time most buildings can evacuate personnel. And if there are obstructions in the way of an exit route, personnel are sure to take far longer to find safe refuge.
