Emergency Lighting Options
Along with exit signs, emergency lights are designed to provide adequate lighting in the event of an emergency or power failure. 1000Bulbs.com offers only the highest quality, UL 924 compliant emergency lights in configurations perfect for any building.
- Standard Emergency Lights: The right choice for most applications, these are all hard-wired emergency lights with two heads. The primary difference is the style of the fixture, though you can also choose between tungsten, halogen, incandescent, and LED light sources.
- Tamper Resistant Emergency Lights : For high traffic public areas, these might be a better choice over standard emergency lights. The vandal resistant design also tends to have a stronger or reinforced body for durability against impact along with tamper resistant screws to further ensure the functionality of the fixture.
- Self-Testing Emergency Lights : While standard emergency lights require manual testing, usually pressing or holding down a button, these units monitor themselves and provide a visual indicator if failure occurs. Usually this means a colored indicator light will turn on or change color, but it can vary between devices, so read the spec sheets for the products for information on that particular model. Failure triggers can be a change to the AC power, battery voltage, emergency lamp connection, or charging circuit.
- Wet Location Emergency Lights : A wet location rating is required for all lights and fixtures used for indoor pools. It is also required for locations where the lights will come into contact with water sprays, such as food service applications and open hallways in apartment complexes or motels that are exposed to rain and humidity.
- Remote Capable Emergency Lights: These emergency lights can be paired with remote heads to better spread out the light without needing as many fully integrated fixtures. Remote heads are available with LED or tungsten lights and may not be compatible with all remote capable emergency lights. Check the PDFs on each product page for compatibility or call an account manager for assistance at 1-800-624-4488.
- High Wattage Emergency Lights: While standard emergency lights can use less than 1 Watt per LED head, these high wattage lights are designed for areas where having extra light is crucial for the safety of residents, employees, or customers. High wattage emergency lights are intended for larger buildings and installations. With remote capability of up to 36 Watts, these units have enough power left over to run external lamp heads.
- Heavy Duty Emergency Lights: Common features of heavy duty emergency lighting includes a wet location rating and a higher flame retardant rating. These fixtures are frequently built with reinforced thermoplastic or die-cast steel housings to help them hold up against punishing environments or high traffic public locations.
