Self Powered Exit Signs - The Benefits of Self Powered Operation

Self Powered Exit Signs

Exit signs are a required form of safety lighting for most businesses. Any business that has occupants within their facility, such as employees or customers, is required to have these exit signs installed within their building. Exit signs are placed over business doorways that lead to an outside exit, and state “EXIT” in red or green illuminated lettering.


Self Powered Exit Signs are a type of exit sign that does not use electricity to operate. Instead, self powered exit signs use either glow in the dark materials or a radioactive gas known as “tritium.” Self powered exit signs save business owners large amounts of money over a period of time by requiring no additions to the electricity bill, as well as providing easy installations.

The types and benefits of self powered exit signs: glow in the dark and tritium-powered.

Glow in the dark exit signs operate in the same fashion as would a glow in the dark sticker or toy. Glow in the dark stickers use only passing light waves to “charge” the internal material, and uses no electricity to operate whatsoever. Glow in the dark exit signs also provide easy installation, as no wiring is required to the exit sign. These exit signs are able to last for up to 25 years, without any type of changes or maintenance.

Tritium powered exit signs are able to produce consistent illumination for up to 25 years as well, only using a material within the fixture that interacts with other gases. Also requiring no electricity, tritium powered exit signs produce “always on” illumination. Tritium powered exit signs differ from glow in the dark exit signs, as glow in the dark exit signs only illuminate when there is no light source – such as during a power outage within the facility.

An affordable alternative to self powered exit signs: the LED exit sign.

The LED exit sign is not technically a self powered exit sign model, as it does require the use of electricity. However, the LED exit sign is the most energy efficient model of exit sign available on the market today – starting at under $20 per unit and using only 5 watts of electricity to power the fixture. The LED exit sign creates a unique and stylish glow effect for any business, using very little electricity. Also, the LED exit sign model includes a battery backup system inside of the exit sign, that will produce illumination during a power failure for 90 minutes.
