Energy Conscious Exit Signs

Check Out Our Green Self Luminous Exit Signs
Energy Star is a joint program of the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) which strives to help Americans save money while protecting our precious natural resources and finite energy surplus. Lot's of electronic appliances are striving to meet their low-energy requirements. In 2010, they actually reduced greenhouse gas emissions to the tune of 33 million cars, with an $18 billion save on national energy costs.
But if self illuminating exit signs are non-electrical, how are they deemed Energy Star appliances?
Energy Star Approved Self Luminous Exit Signs
All exit signs manufactured on or after January 1, 2006 must have a power demand of 5 watts or less.
All of our self luminous signs meet the following Energy Star criteria:
- Input power demand of 5 watts or less per sign face (less than 10w for double sided units)
- Manufacturer warranty for defective parts - no less than 5 years
- Listed in accordance with UL 924
- Meets criteria for the NFPA 101: Life Safety Code
- Meets OSHA directives
SL Sign Cost Savings
Because of their robust and careful construction, our self-luminous signs can sometimes be a little more expensive than LED signs. However, when you factor in the advantages of tritium exit signs you'll actually find them to be less expensive over time.
Unlike LED signs, you will not have to hire an electrician to install a junction box or run electrical conduits; a process that can cost more than the sign itself. Then add up the constant power drain that LEDs will consume from your building every year. After that, factor in monthly and yearly maintenance - a hassle which is eliminated when you go with the self-luminous option.
