Conventional exit signs use incandescent or LED lights to illuminate "EXIT." These methods of lighting require a power source, battery pack, and maintenance schedule. The Tritium Exit Sign requires none of those because it uses a radioactive isotope of hydrogen called tritium to self-power this fixture. This means there are no components that can malfunction or battery pack tests to perform every month and year.
Once this fixture is properly installed, it requires no maintenance for its entire lifespan. If a 20 year fixture is purchased, that means the Tritium Exit Sign will still be illuminating "EXIT" in bright green nearly two decades from now. Not only is this fixture convenient, it is also cost effective. An electrician does not need to be hired to install it and battery packs never have to be replaced.
The thermoplastic housing and shatter-proof borosilicate glass tube that houses the tritium ensures safe and reliable illumination. This fixture is UL 924 listed, meaning it is approved for use in the United States and Canada.
Tritium Exit Signs provide consistent illumination by emitting electrons through radioactive decay. When these electrons come into contact with the included phosphorus chemical, bright green light is produced. This process continues for 10, 15, or 20 years, depending on the fixture specified when ordering. This process is completely safe and more reliable than traditional battery powered exit signs.
This Tritium Exit Sign comes with a black face and is housed in durable thermoplastic that protects internal components. The tritium gas is kept safe by borosilicate glass tubes. These are completely shatter-proof, ensuring tritium will not leak because of moderate abuse. It is also possible to customize this fixture with a white or red frame.
The Tritium Exit Sign is appropriate for indoor and outdoor applications. It has no electrical components or battery, so it can be used in wet locations that feature freezing temperatures. Of course, it also provides a hassle free solution for offices and schools. With its low profile design and attractive housing, the Tritium Exit Sign is a versatile fixture.
This fixture can be wall or ceiling mounted as a single or double-sided exit sign. When the double-sided mounting is chosen, the Tritium Exit Sign will display "EXIT" on both sides of the fixture, eliminating the need for excess exit signs and cutting costs. The Tritium Exit Sign mounts in about 15 minutes with included hardware and requires absolutely no electrical connection. Forget about an electrician - the Tritium Exit Sign can be easily mounted by those with little to no electrical prowess.
