The Tritium Exit Sign is a self-powered exit sign that uses tritium gas instead of traditional light bulbs. Through radioactive decay, the internal tritium emits electrons that come into contact with a phosphorous chemical to produce a red glowing illumination. This fixture is 100% non-electrical, so it can be placed in outdoor locations that do not have an easily accessible power source. It is also rated for wet locations and will remain operational even in freezing temperatures.
This exit sign is incredibly convenient because it requires no battery pack that can loose charge over time or electrical wiring that is susceptible to corrosion. Once installed, the Tritium Exit Sign will provide reliable illumination for up to 20 years. It requires literally no maintenance.
Tritium exit signs comply with all the same safety codes as traditional bulb or LED-based exit signs. They are UL 924 listed for use in the United States and Canada.
Despite the fact that the Tritium Exit Sign uses a radioactive gas, its secure glass enclosure makes it completely safe. It is guaranteed to glow for its entire designated lifespan. After 10, 15, or 20 years of reliable use, the Tritium Exit Sign will need to be taken to a tritium recycling plant for proper and code compliant disposal.
The Tritium Exit Sign is housed in a light and durable thermoplastic. It comes with a red face and can be customized with either a white or red frame. Shatter-proof borosilicate glass protects the tritium tubes to ensure they do not break during shipping, installation, or during abuse the fixture may endure.
Because the Tritium Exit Sign contains no electrical components, it can be used in outdoor locations that feature moisture and freezing temperatures. When installed outdoors, the Tritium Exit Sign will cut costs by eliminating the need for a conduit and associated installation costs. It is also appropriate for indoor settings like retail, residential, and commercial environments.
The Tritium Exit Sign mounts in under 15 minutes because there is no AC connection to hardwire. It top or side mounts to most nonflammable materials with the included aluminum mounting bracket. When back mounted, this fixture sits flush on the wall and when top mounted, it hangs from the ceiling. It is possible to customize the Tritium Exit Sign with an additional faceplate so it can display "EXIT" on both sides of the fixture.
