Sealed Lead Acid (SLA)
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.
Red letters are required for New York City and Chicago approved exit signs.
Green letters are typically used in theater exit signs.
