Experts in the lighting want consumers to know that not all Exit signs are equal. If signs are exposed to rain, snow or sleet, even the best made standard Exit signs can experience electrical failures, which puts the public at risk for injury, and business owners at risk for costly lawsuits or government fines. According to the US governments Office of Compliance, “The answer may seem obvious, but people often do not appreciate the importance of exit signs. When there is an emergency in a building, all occupants and visitors must be informed of the most efficient way to exit the building. Not every person is familiar with a building’s layout.”
In response to the growing need for tougher exit signs, Exit Sign Warehouse is seeking to educate the public about wet weather exit signs. This winter season, they are highlighting The ESW-WL-EX series which has been designed to perform in applications where the climate would be a serious threat to basic signs. The entire internal cavity of the sign is protected from moisture invasion by an extremely resilient gasket. The gasketing is "hot-bonded" to the lens during the manufacturing process. This process greatly reduces the likelihood of gasket dryness and damage. The ESW-WL-EX also can be equipped with an optional thermostatically controlled heater for frigid climates.
While maintenance managers would be wise to inspect their facilities signage on a regular basis, they can rest assured that even in torrential downpours and snow storms their emergency exit signs will live up to performance standards and keep the public safe.
