Emergency Lights | Buy UL listed emergency lighting
An emergency light is a lighting device with a battery backup that switches on automatically when a building experiences a power outage. Emergency lights are standard in commercial and high occupancy residential buildings, such as college dormitories. Most building codes require emergency lighting be installed in older buildings as well.
Cold Weather emergency lights & exit signs
Batteries placed in cold environments can eventually fail or rupture. If your emergency lights or exit signs will be installed in temperatures below 20° F (-6° C), you may want to consider a cold weather option. Cold weather lights include a thermostatic battery heater which maintains the battery strength and lifespan in temperatures between -4° F (-20° C) and -40° F (-40° C) depending on the model you choose.
Sealed lead acid (SLA) batteries
Sealed lead acid batteries are sometimes referred to as VRLA (valve regulated lead acid) and there are two primary types AGM and Gel. We offer both AGM and Gel batteries, each has its advantages over the other depending on the specific application. SLA batteries usually last between 3 to 5 years with typical usage. The optimum operating temperature for the lead-acid battery is 25°C (77°F). Elevated temperature reduces longevity. As a guideline, every 8°C (15°F) rise in temperature cuts the battery life in half.
Assembled In America exit signs & emergency lights
Products displaying an 'Assembled in the USA' label will contain a percentage of imported components but will be physically assembled in America and are compliant with the Buy American Act (BAA). The FTC states that Assembled in America products must have undergone a significant transformation on American soil.
Hazardous location exit signs and emergency lights are designed to operate in hostile environments that would damage ordinary signs and lights. Constructed from corrosion resistant materials, some units offer sealed enclosures that can be used in outdoor environments or areas subject to water spray, moisture and extreme temperature conditions.
Architectural lighting is designed to be a highly functional style of lighting in spaces where light fixtures are needed to serve a fundamental purpose, such as providing focused downlight or accenting certain areas of a room. Often thought of as a practical type of lighting, these fixtures are not usually given credit for their decorative character and ability to add undeniable style to a lighting project.
