What are Emergency Lights?

Emergency lights and exit signs are safety devices that are paramount in all commercial buildings. However, exit signs alone are neither meant for nor powerful enough to keep a building or common areas safe for both employees and customers and secure from outsiders, especially during power outages or blackouts. In a scenario where the lights go off, people need illumination to navigate through dark hallways, stairwells, and other poorly lit places without bumping into others as well as objects, keeping them out of harm’s way. Halogen and incandescent emergency lights and fluorescent backup batteries are perfect solutions for instantly illuminating spaces during an emergency, helping everyone get to safety. Exit Signs and Emergency Lights are typically used in tandem to provide illumination on one hand and direct people to the exit of a building in the event of an emergency on the flip side. Exit lights are generally placed above doorways, while emergency lights are configured to generate lighting in the occurrence of electricity cuts. 

Why Choose LED Exit Signs?

Gone are the days when we had to rely on energy-hogging lighting, which is along the same lines as exit signages. We have come a long way since the conventional luminaires that have changed dramatically and made substantial progress. Did you know that the typical incandescent exit sign uses 20 watts? That's an insane amount of energy consumed over a 24-hour time frame! Instead, switch over to LED exit signs and see immediate results, be it regarding your electricity bills dropping, your maintenance and replacement costs going down, or exit signs lasting longer. The innovative LED exit signs are undoubtedly the "green" alternatives that reduce the carbon footprint on the environment. 

What are the Benefits Attached to LED Exit Signs and Emergency Lights?

Over the years, LED lighting technology has advanced and evolved to the point where it can surpass and resolve a vast majority of the challenges, issues, and drawbacks of the past technologies, as detailed below.

The lighting quality is significantly far better than in former times in terms of color rendering, color temperature, and lumen output (compared to wattage used). They considerably have a much-prolonged lifespan than their traditional counterparts, thereby substantially reducing the replacement and maintenance. To begin with, though investing in high-quality LED illuminants may end up being a costly affair as they are priced slightly on the higher side, in the long run, they quickly make up for the costs on the grounds that they last longer and utilize much less energy than conventional lights, ultimately saving on utility costs in the course of time. Furthermore, unlike their past rivals, they do not waste energy emitted as heat.
