NOTE: All Tritium Exit Signs from all Certified Vendors are Back Ordered 4-6 Weeks. If you would like to be First in Line on those Shipments, Please order Today. Otherwise, it will be a longer Lead Time. This is an Industry-wide Notice.
Self-Luminous exit signs are the most reliable exit signs offered today. They require no external energy source no electrical wiring or batteries and are always ready to provide an effective maintenance free exit marking system. Arrows and Mounting Decisions All can be made in the field.Your first cost is your last cost!
CONSTRUCTION The self-luminous exits are designed for easy installation. The use of internally sealed tritium gas as the illumination source reduces general maintenance issues and operational costs. The self-luminous exit does not require electrical power, wiring or batteries. The self-luminous exits are available in single or double face versions. Housings are available constructed from durable corrosion resistant thermoplastic or industrial grade aluminum, please specify when ordering.
DIMENSIONS Length 12.75" Height 9" Width 1"
INTERNAL SPECIFICATIONS SELF-LUMINOUS: standard self-luminous models are internally illuminated by maintenance free sealed tritium tubes. Tritium source illumination provides constant emergency illumination ranging from ten (10) or twenty (20) years.
EXTERNAL SPECIFICATIONS The self-luminous exits housing is constructed from durable, corrosion resistant ABS thermoplastic or optional industrial grade aluminum. The housing is supplied standard with a red on white stencil and white or black frame finish. Wall, ceiling or end mounting configurations are available. Single or double face versions must be specified. Removable field adjustable chevron arrows are standard on each unit.
INSTALLATION The self-luminous exit is suitable for surface ceiling, wall and end mounting. Suitable for wet, cold and hazardous location installations.
EFFICIENT PERFORMANCE The self-luminous exit is a completely self-powered, illuminated exit sign requiring no external power source of any kind. Barring destruction of the unit, the self-luminous sign must be accounted for as being totally reliable during its predicted life. The self-luminous exit sign is always "ON" requiring no wiring or electrical installation, and as a practical and environmental matter, consumes no power of any kind. The self-luminous exits average life expectancy is 10 - 20 years.
LIGHT SPECIFICATIONS The self-luminous exit uses self-luminous tritium as a light source. Although this source emits light, it cannot be considered or measured in the same sense as incandescent (point) sources, where light is emitted evenly from an area rather than a point surface. The conventional unit of measurement is the microlambert. For convenience, the following definitions are provided: Lambert = The unit of brightness equal to 1/candles/cm Foot Lambert = The unit of brightness equal to 1/candles/ft = approximately 1000 microlamberts (the conversion factor is microlamberts = 1076 x foot lamberts, and foot lamberts = microlamberts /1076).
MECHANICAL SPECIFICATIONS The self-luminous exit is manufactured under stringent quality control procedures and meet all requirements of the Atomic Energy Control Board (AECB) and the Federal Nuclear Regulatory Commission. Illumination is achieved by using a permanent internal light source. Tritium emits relatively low energy beta particles that bombard the phosphorus coated glass tubes, this action generates light. Light emitting phosphors are designed and selected according to their color and light production efficiency. The self-luminous exit features several glass envelopes (tubes) that are encased behind plastic housing light diffusers. To reduce chances of breakage, these signs features tritium tube shockproof mountings made of PVC.
