Hazardous / Explosion Proof Exit Signs
If there's an emergency in a building, having properly illuminated exit signs is paramount to ensure that everyone can get out safely. However, if those exit signs are unable to handle things like flammable or explosive gases or vapors, that can be a real problem.
Thankfully today many LED lighting manufacturers make exit signs specifically designed to be explosion proof for hazardous locations where chemicals, dust and other harsh substances are present and might be flammable or explosive if a fire breaks out. These signs also use the latest in LED lighting technology, providing highly visible markings of where exits are located to help employees and others make their way out of a building quickly and efficiently.
Additionally, many of these hazardous location and explosion proof LED exit signs will also come with an emergency battery back-up so they stay lit even if the power goes out. And many will hold a number of certifications, such as UL listed for use in wet and hazardous locations or qualifications from NEMA (National Emergency Management Association).
