by Cooper Clark on Aug 13, 2019

      Every business wants to know what OSHA standards apply to them because those rules give a good idea of what will keep employees and customers safe.

3 Reasons Your Emergency Lights Should Be LED's

Emergency exit lights need to function properly and safely even in situations where all other lights in the building fail. 

This is why most emergency exit lights are connected to a backup battery source that will last at least a few hours after power fails or is cut off in the building. Beyond power source, you should also think carefully about the materials used to build your emergency exit lights and the bulbs that illuminate the signs so that people in dangerous situations can clearly navigate their way to safety.

Emergency Exit Lights Go Beyond Signs

by Cooper Clark on May 09, 2018

Emergency exit signs are in every public building that is up to code, but what many people don't realize is that the best ones offer more than the word "exit."
