Hazardous / Explosion Proof Exit Signs
Having dependable and well-lit exit signs in a building are extremely important for the safety of those that either work or shop at a business. If an emergency ever happens, people need illuminated signs to quickly lead them to safety.
Depending on the type of business your safety lighting project runs, certain materials such as gases, vapors and dust can actually cause fire. And some lighting fixtures can actually explode if the temperature around them gets too hot. That is why when selecting an LED exit sign, it's good advice to go with one that is explosion proof and specifically designed for use in hazardous environments.
Many of today's hazardous and explosion proof LED exit signs are made from very durable materials, such as aluminum or polycarbonate, with housings and lightheads that are completely sealed to keep out any dust or water. Most also hold a number of building and lighting industry certifications, such as UL 924 and the Life Safety 101 code of the National Fire Protection Association.
