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.
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.
Buy America Compliant (BAA)
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.
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.
Exit sign combo units are really a 2 for 1 solution and are the ideal solution where you need to install both an exit sign & an emergency light near each other. Exit combos allow you to maintain just one battery and unit while meeting two code requirements. There is a combo exit sign for almost every application and location.
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.
These products can be hung from the ceiling. Many exit signs come with the ceiling mounting canopy included.
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.
Tough steel exit signs are the ultimate in durable, impact-resistant exit signage & emergency lights. Available in New York and Chicago approved models, these signs features a universal canopy and LED lighting.
AC only exit signs do not include a battery backup or charging circuitry and are for installation and use only where emergency power is supplied from a remote or secondary AC power supply.
Dual circuit exit signs. These unit allows the fixture to have dual power feeds. The idea behind this is so that when on normal power, the fixture is fed from a switch leg and can be turned off by the occupant. The PTS relay coil is fed by unswitched normal power. The normal power from the switch leg is connected to the normally open contacts on the PTS relay.
Nickel Metal Hydride (NiMH)
A nickel metal hydride battery, abbreviated NiMH or Ni–MH, is a type of rechargeable battery. A NiMH battery can have two to three times the capacity of an equivalent size NiCd, and its energy density can approach that of a lithium-ion battery.
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.
