Traditional exit lights with fluorescent tubes require a lot of maintenance to ensure they will operate correctly in an emergency.
With the new range of LED exit lights now available it’s usually cheaper to replace a faulty older exit light than it is to repair it.
LED exit lights have many advantages over the older style lights. They require much less maintenance, are cheaper to purchase, have more reliable batteries and chargers and use much less power.
Power consumption is an important consideration as many exit lights are required to run 24 hours a day. There are big savings to be made on running costs alone. The cost savings from lower maintenance requirements are on-going for the life of the fitting, which is considerably longer than for a fluorescent style exit light.
Each new lights come with a range of “running man” style graphics all in the one box. There is no need to purchase a specific left or right arrow diffuser for each location. The one fitting can be adapted to suit all situations.
If your commercial property has exit lights they are required to be checked every six months, with a log book on site to record the testing date and any repairs carried out.
