As a business owner, you have to be constantly vigilant that you are not overspending on things and that your safety systems are up-to-date. One aspect of your business that falls into both categories is your exit lighting. This vital safety lighting must be working and up-to-code for the people who work in or visit your business to be safe. But these lights also allow you to save money if you opt for LED lights. LED lighting can be installed in virtually any room in your home, and when you trust the experts at TriStar Electric, you know the job will be done professionally and on time. We value experience and knowledge at TriStar, so we train our technicians and electricians constantly so they can share that information with our clients. Read on to learn more.
What is Exit Lighting?
Exit lighting is the signage above doors that says “Exit.” These lights are constantly illuminated, even during power failures, fires, or other emergencies. These signs are designed to signify that a doorway is a route to the outside of the building. These signs must be clear, easy to understand, and precisely what is needed in low-light, low-visibility situations or when someone panics. The legal mandates that control this type of signage include:
- Exit signs must be legible
- Exit signs must be lit
- Exit signs must be at the halfway point between two fire exits
- If the exit is not visible, a secondary exit sign must be in place
At TriStar Electric, we understand how vital emergency exit signage is and know the regulations and codes to ensure that yours is installed safely.
Benefits of LED Exit Lighting
Today, LED lighting is leading the way as the most popular choice for commercial and residential lighting applications. LED lighting is energy efficient, making it a practical financial choice. It is also a “green” choice because LED lighting wastes less energy than other types of lighting, and it does not give off tremendous excess heat. By saving energy, you will also save money on your electric bills. These benefits are even better when you consider all of the stylistic options available for LED lighting – you will not have to make any aesthetic compromises to reap the benefits of switching to LEDs (though there is not much aesthetic choice in emergency exit lighting, generally).
