Green building is not only a global trend, but an important effort in energy conservation. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency estimates there are more than 100 million hard-wired exit signs in the U.S. today consuming 30–35 billion kilowatt-hours (kWh) of electricity annually. This produces an output of five or six 1,000 MW power plants, costing us $2-3 billion per year. Purchasing an alternative to hard-wired emergency exit signs can help reduce these numbers drastically.
Jessup Manufacturing’s GloBrite product line offers an approved alternative to hard-wired emergency exit signs. These photoluminescent products rely solely on ambient light to then later illuminate during darkness and power outages. The UL 924 photoluminescent exit signs offer building owners a true electricity free option and eco-friendly option in fire safety signage.
The GloBrite emergency exit signs meet local and national requirements. These glow-in-the-dark products are UL 924 listed, meet NFPA Life Safety Code 101, OSHA requirements, and International Building and Fire Code 2009, 2012, 2015, 2018. They do not require any back-up generators or batteries, making them easy to install and maintain.
Photoluminescent emergency exit signs offer a quick and easy way for both new construction and older building renovations alike to become more eco-friendly. Builders are able to earn points toward the Leadership in Energy Environmental Design (LEED) certification by choosing this hard-wired alternative emergency exit sign. Boasting a life span of 25 years and completely recyclable, they are an excellent investment in your building and the Earth’s future.
