All LED Exit and Emergency Lighting is a Reliably Bright Idea

LED Exit & Emergency e-conolight officeIf the unthinkable happens and seconds count, exit and emergency lighting should be bright, sturdy, and reliable. E-conolight now offers a complete LED line of exit and emergency lighting that meets or exceeds industry standards, offers improved performance, and stands up to customer expectations.

Red or green letters on exit signs are a full six inches tall for exceptional visibility and include removable and replaceable chevrons for directions to the nearest exit. Housings are constructed of injection-molded, 5VA flame retardant thermoplastic or durable aluminum, depending on the model number. All exit signs include a sealed, nickel-free cadmium battery for up to 90 minutes of backup power in case of a power outage.

New LED exit signs are also more energy efficient, using less than four watts on input volts of 120V to 277V.

Emergency lights are now also LED and come ready for installation into standard J-boxes with quick-connect back plates. Recessed models can fit into either drywall or drop ceilings with included bar hangers. All LED emergency lights use three watts or less with universal voltage of 120 to 277.

This new line of LED exit and emergency lights comes equipped with remote head capability as well for increased flexibility, including one model that can support up to 20 remote heads (E-X1ML1006). Remote heads come in either single or double-head configurations, at 1 watt and 2 watts, respectively. Multi-volt chip provides for additional installation options into 3.6-volt, 6-volt, and 9.6-volt systems.

The new line of LED exit and emergency lights starts at just $12.99 at e-conolight.com.

For Chicago customers, e-conolight also offers a complete line of LED exit and emergency lighting that meets specific standards outlined by city ordinance. Chicago is the third-largest city in the country and home to some of the tallest buildings in the nation so city codes spell out requirements for maximum visibility, longevity and clarity.

Exit and Emergency Lights Meet Tough Windy City Standards

Chicago Approved E & EWhen it comes to exit and emergency lighting, the City of Chicago isn’t taking chances. The city’s Code of Ordinances spells out certain requirements in order to provide signage that’s bright, rugged and reliable in case, well, of an emergency.

Every municipality has its own requirements for signage, and it's important to check those codes before ordering products for a project. Because Chicago is the nation's third-largest city with some of the tallest buildings in the country, leaders developed their own ordinances for exit and emergency lighting for maximum visibility, longevity and clarity.

E-conolight offers a line of exit and emergency lighting that meets Chicago’s stringent standards, including steel housing, flexible mounting options and flexible lettering and arrow options. All Chicago-approved signage is UL listed for damp locations and includes a five-year limited warranty on housing and electronics and a five-year pro-rated warranty on batteries.

LED exit/stairs signs are available in steel and recessed or surface edgelit designs. All LED signage comes in either single or double face configurations with multiple arrow options. All lettering is red and six inches tall for greater visibility, and battery back-up is provided by a sealed, maintenance-free nickel cadmium battery that recharges in 24 hours via an internal solid-state, two-rate charger.

Emergency lighting is either recessed or remote capable, but both styles are constructed of durable, neutral white 20-guage steel and include adjustable 12W bi-pin halogen lamp heads. Mounting options differ slightly – wall mount or placed in a T-bar grid ceiling – but both the recessed and remote models include a 6V sealed lead-acid maintenance-free rechargeable battery.

Remote heads are also available in either 6V or 12V 12 watt versions. Customers can choose indoor or outdoor wet location and order items in either grey or white.

E-conolight has taken the guesswork out of ordering the right fixtures for a project in Chicago. Customers can trust the entire line of Chicago-approved exit and emergency lighting can be used for most indoor commercial applications in the city.
