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.
The main housing of these exit signs and emergency lights is painted white or made from a white thermoplastic.
The main housing of these exit signs and emergency lights is painted black or made from a black thermoplastic.
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.
Brushed die-cast aluminum housings provide a modern appearance with ultimate functionality.
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.
Recessed mounted exit signs or emergency lights offer a low-profile installation by hiding the housing, which includes the electrical components of the exit sign in the ceiling.
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.
Remote heads are lights used in conjunction with a remote capable emergency lights or exit sign. Essentially, remote emergency light heads offer more than one backup lighting location, without having to add additional lighting systems. The result is a flexible system with low cost and maintenance.
With some products you can order your products with a custom color of your choosing. Custom color usually come with a longer lead time and we often need to contact the supplier for a final price for the customization.
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.
A multifaceted reflector (often abbreviated MR) light bulb is a reflector housing format for halogen as well as some LED and fluorescent lamps. MR lamps were originally designed for use in slide projectors, but see use in residential lighting and retail lighting as well.
