Self Luminous Exit Sign Easy Installation
Self luminous exit signs are so easy to install that almost anyone can do it in under 15 minutes. Simply find where you'd like to back or top mount it to the nonflammable wall or ceiling, then use the included drill bracket to securely mount it. Thats it. Nothing else to install. Nothing else to connect. Not even a switch to flip on.
These fixtures require no electrical connection, so a certified electrician does not need to hardwire the fixture to the building's main source of power. Once the self luminous exit sign is installed, it is ready to provide 10, 15, or 20 years of reliable exit sign illumination with no maintenance requirements other than an occasional cleaning of the face plate.

Superior ease of installation
Installing a self luminous exit sign is so easy because it is a completely self contained fixture. This type of exit sign uses tritium, a radioactive isotope of hydrogen, that emits electrons that cause the phosphor contained within the housing to glow green. Traditional exit signs use LEDs or incandescent bulbs to illuminate EXIT during normal operation and when AC power is lost. These forms of illumination require a hardwired connection to power the fixture and charge the battery simultaneously. This type of fixture is required to provide at least 90 minutes of power from the battery pack only so occupants can efficiently evacuate efficiently in case of emergency.
The benefits of self luminous exit signs
The self luminous exit sign does not just provide easy installation, it also makes maintenance a breeze. Once installed, this fixture does not require the monthly and yearly tests that bulb-lit exit signs typically require. If it is illuminated, the building is code compliant and ready in case of emergency. It provides up to 20 years of illumination with no components that can deteriorate, malfunction, or require replacing. This saves the user money in the long term, but also in the short term by avoiding the use of an electrician and involved installation process. The self luminous exit sign is more expensive than traditional exit signs at first glance, but its savings over time outweigh the initial investment.
