In fact, tritium exit signs are the most reliable type of exit lighting fixture available, as they do not rely on electrical connections or batteries to operate during emergencies.

Completely self-powered, self-luminous exit signs utilize tritium, a type of hydrogen gas that naturally glows green, to produce brilliant and highly visible exit illumination. Tubes of tritium gas are arranged to spell "EXIT" and then enclosed in a vandal-resistant thermoplastic housing. A polycarbonate faceplate protects the sign and enables it to be used outdoors. The emitted light from a radioluminescent exit sign is not perceptible during the day, but at night (or when general lighting is interrupted) the 'EXIT' legend stands out in complete darkness.

Self-luminous exit signs are simple to install, they come with hardware for top and side mounting configurations. Back (surface) mounting a self-luminous exit sign is simple, they flush mount to the wall and only protrude 1"; they are extremely low profile. Self-luminous exit signs allow for a variety of face and frame color combinations. The face color, which is the area of the sign around "EXIT" is a black plastic insert with knockout directional chevrons. The sturdy, flame-retardant frame is offered in both white and black.

Self-luminous exit signs are universally applicable, they can be used for just about any type of exit sign application. Best of all, there are no maintenance or operating costs for the life of the exit sign, which for this model is 10 or 20 years.

Non-Electrical Specifications

Tritium illumination is produced by gaseous tritium, an isotope of hydrogen, which produces visible light. Tritium gas naturally emits electrons and when they combine and interact with a phosphor material light is emitted. This is a process also known as radio-luminescence. Tritium lighting for self luminous exit signs is made using glass tubes with a phosphor layer in them and tritium gas inside the tube. Tritium tubes are constructed from shatterproof borosilicate glass.
