Self Luminous Exit Signs - Customized Features
Pimp Your Self Luminous Exit Sign!
One of the best aspects of purchasing self luminous exit signs is their utter simplicity. There really are only a few types of SL signs to choose from. However, you can order them in a variety of customizable features to suit your business and satisfy your aesthetic sensibility.
Self powered exit signs look pretty identical. The only variables are the background stencil color and whether the unit is single or double sided. Though some models last longer than others, you would not be able to tell just by looking at the sign.

Our standard SL signs are built with a robust die-cast aluminum housing with a clear polycarbonate lens protecting the exit face. The outer edge, or frame, comes standard with an unpainted brushed aluminum finish. Customized frames will help direct people's eyes to the sign face.

When constructing these self powered exit signs, a stencil is placed between the glowing tritium tubes and the polycarbonate lens. This stencil contains the knocked-out 'exit' lettering with two universal chevron knockouts on either side.
During the day, tritium will appear very faint, so the stencil outline is a very important component of the sign. UL mandates only certain colors be used that contrast and enhance the neon-green tritium glow.
Stencil colors are available in:
