LED exit sign replacements are more durable, last longer

TORRANCE, CA — August 15, 1997 — What is it that causes your lighted exit signs to go out? If your situation is like most, it’s the continuous operation of the incandescent lamps combined with the shock and vibration they encounter by being located above doorways. Incandescent bulbs, which provide the light for most exit signs, produce light by passing electricity through a filament. When the filament breaks, from shock and old age, the light goes out.

A much more reliable solution is found in exit signs illuminated by light emitting diodes or LEDs. Because LEDs have no filament, they are almost impervious to shock and vibration, and a new generation of ultra-bright LEDs marketed by California manufacturer LEDtronics®, Inc., offers direct replacement for most common bulbs found in exit signs.

Designed on standard bases, the LEDtronics® replacements require no modifications to the socket or to the circuit that supplies power. Each LED cluster provides the same illumination as the incandescent lamp it replaces, but uses a fraction of the energy and -- with an average lifespan of 100,000 hours -- far outlives the typical incandescent.

LEDtronics®’ LED replacements for exit sign lamps are available with Edison intermediate and candelabra screw bases as well as double-contact bayonet mounts. These LED lamps are configured to produce high intensity wide-angle illumination patterns in either red or green.

If you’d like to reduce energy consumption, lower maintenance costs, and keep your exit signs lighted more of the time, look into durable LED replacements from LEDtronics®.
