Why Use Self Luminous Signs

ALWAYS ON
The most dependable exit sign available today, providing continuous uninterrupted illumination that requires no external energy source, batteries, or activating light source.

COST EFFECTIVE
No wiring, no electric bills, no maintenance.  Simple installation with no defective circuits, batteries or lamps to check or replace.

ENERGY EFFICIENT
Consume no electricity.

WATERPROOF
Sign unaffected by moisture.  Ideal for damp or wet locations.

EXPLOSION PROOF
Contains no electrical components.  No spark or arcing.  Ideal for hazardous locations.

TEMPERATURE PROOF
Unaffected by extreme temperature variations.  Ideal for cold or freezer applications.  Tested from -55°C to 80°C.

VERSITILE
Can be used anywhere, indoors or outdoors.  Custom legends and pictograms are available. 

ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY
The innovative self-luminous technology turns a waste product into a commercially viable life safety sign. The tritium gas used to energize the sign’s internal light source is a by-product of nuclear power generation which, if not used, would require storage and disposal.  Additionally, the sign components are recycled at the end of their effective life.

MEET ALL SAFETY CODES
UL Listed to Underwriters Laboratories 924 Standard for Emergency Lighting and conforms to the National Fire Protection Associations Life Safety Code 101.

SAFE
To many, radiation is a scary word, but, with a little knowledge, any fear of self-luminous signs should disappear.  Although powered by the radioactive gas, tritium (H³), the signs emit no radiation.  The tritium gas is fully contained within the sign.  The only potential risk could occur if the sign is broken and somehow a person is able to ingest the tritium. In the event that a sign is destroyed and the internal light sources are broken, the tritium gas will escape and will immediately rise and dilute with the air.  In the unlikely event that a person was somehow able to breathe in all of the escaping gas from a sign, their maximum potential radiation exposure would be the equivalent to a dental x-ray.

CONTRIBUTE TOWARD WORLD PEACE
In addition to the normal supply channel from nuclear power generators, tritium has also been extracted from Russian warheads for use in self-luminous exit signs.
