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.
6 volt rechargeable batteries are a type of battery that can be recharged and used multiple times. They are commonly used for devices that require a low voltage and a high current, such as game feeders, lanterns, emergency lights, and electric signs. 6 volt rechargeable batteries have several advantages over disposable batteries, such as saving money, reducing waste, and preventing short-circuiting.
There are different types of 6 volt rechargeable batteries, such as Sealed Lead Acid (SLA)
, lithium iron phosphate (LiFePO4), nickel metal hydride (NiMH) and Nickel-Cadmium (NiCD)
. Each type has its own characteristics, such as capacity, cycle life, weight, and price. For example, SLA batteries are cheap and durable, but heavy and bulky. LiFePO4 batteries are lightweight and long-lasting, but expensive and sensitive to overcharging. NiMH batteries are eco-friendly and high-performance, but prone to self-discharge and memory effect. Depending on the application and preference, users can choose the best type of 6 volt rechargeable battery for their needs.
Rechargeable batteries are batteries that can be recharged and reused multiple times. They are more environmentally friendly and cost-effective than disposable batteries. One of the most common types of rechargeable batteries is the 12 volt battery, which is often used in backup power supplies, LED lights, CCTV cameras, and other devices that require a steady and reliable power source.
12 volt rechargeable batteries come in different sizes, capacities, and chemistries. Some of the most popular chemistries are sealed lead acid (SLA), lithium ion (Li-ion), and lithium iron phosphate (LiFePO4). Each chemistry has its own advantages and disadvantages, such as weight, lifespan, performance, and safety. For example, SLA batteries are heavy and have a short cycle life, but they are cheap and easy to maintain. Li-ion batteries are light and have a high energy density, but they are expensive and prone to overheating. LiFePO4 batteries are stable and have a long cycle life, but they are costly and have a lower voltage than other lithium batteries.
A damp location is an interior location normally subject to dampness or condensation, or an exterior location protected from weather and not subject to saturation with water. Damp locations include over bathtubs, indoor pools, covered porches, and like locations.
Wet Location emergency lights and exit signs are weatherproof and designed to be used in outdoor environments, as well as indoor locations that are exposed to water and moisture. Wet location emergency lights and exit signs are extremely durable and long-lasting.
This feature may be added to many exit sign and emergency light fixtures, the SDT feature prolongs battery life, and reduced man hours required OSHA tests. Self testing diagnostic automatically executes a 15 minute test every 30 days and runs a 90 minutes test once per year. The major reasons batteries typically fail is because they remain dormant for long periods of time. With the SDT feature automatically simulates a full discharge and full recharge to keep the batteries in peak performance. If any problems arise during this testing process it will report them through the user interface. This benefit drastically reduces man hours required by OSHA to manually perform the tests.
Visibility, brightness and long life are very important factors that should be thought about when purchasing and exit sign. Light emitting diode or LED exit signs & emergency lights have proven to be successful in the reducing electricity consumption by up to 85%. LED exit signs can save money and power while still emitting considerable amounts of light.
An emergency light with battery backup capability switches to emergency operation in the event of a power loss to illuminate escape routes and safety equipment.
NEMA rated enclosures are intended for indoor or outdoor use primarily to provide a degree of protection against the entry of water during prolonged submersion at a limited depth. NEMA 12 enclosures are designed to prevent the ingress of dust, water, and oil.
Exit signs & emergency lights that are surface mountable are typically one sided and have a back plate that can be connected directly to a wall or flat surface.
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.
Commercial lighting is lighting used for commercial spaces such as offices, stores, institutions, hospitals and government buildings, essentially those spaces that are not residential, industrial or for manufacturing.
Industrial modern blends the urban edge of utilitarian design with the warmth of aged woods and worn textures. Lighting utilize aged iron and metals with rich patinas, accented by weathered woods and soft neutral surfaces.
Beautiful and stylish residential lighting.
