Self Powered Exit Signs - The Benefits and a Comparison

Self Powered Exit Signs

Exit signs can often be seen within most business facilities, and simply say “EXIT” on a rectangular sign placed over a doorway that leads to an outside exit. Exit signs state the word “EXIT” in red or green letters over a doorway that leads to an outside exit from the facility. Exit signs are required by OSHA and building safety code regulations.


Self Powered Exit Signs are a type of exit sign that does not require the use of electricity. Self powered exit signs use either glow in the dark materials or tritium to power the exit sign, creating a long lasting glow effect and providing cost efficient installation and operation of the exit sign.
