Self Luminous Exit Sign Dimensions

Sign Sizes

People who have never bought an exit sign usually don't realize there are many different types available. Most are electrically powered and lit by LED or incandescent bulbs. They come in a variety of different sizes and styles.

However, self luminous exit signs, which use no power or bulbs, have fixed dimensions. There are really only three types available, though the 'exit' wording can be ordered in many different width and strokes.

Dimensions of Self Luminous Exit Signs

The two types of self powered exit signs you will ever need are either:

  1. Single-Sided
  2. Double-Sided

Though you can customize the background color, lettering size, housing materials and lifespans, they will always be either single or double sided.

The next aspect that determines your self powered exit sign's measurements are weather they are built with an ABS plastic, aluminum or vandal resistant frames.

SL w/ ABS plastic frame:

  • Single - 8-1/2" x 14" x 1"
  • Double - 8-1/2" x 14" x 2-1/4" 

SL w/ cast aluminum frame:

  • Single - 8-1/4" x 12-3/4" x 1-1/2"
  • Double - 8-1/4" x 12-3/4" x 2-1/4"

SL w/ vandal resistant frame:

  • Single - 12-1/4" x 16-1/4" x 1-7/8"

Vandal resistant frames are available only if you order them specifically over the phone. They are only available for single-sided signs. They have an angled aluminum frame that uses the wall for extra impact resistance.
