Greentorch offers a comprehensive selection of the most energy efficient, quality assured exit signs in the market today. All of our exit signs help to reduce your energy bill by using the best technology in safety lighting today. Nearly 80% of exit signs in the United States still use outdated incandescent bulbs which burn out often and use unneeded energy. Greentorch promotes new and dependable safety signs that use or non-electrical technology.
Incandescent exit signs generally use 15-20 watts of energy per bulb, compared to exit signs, which use 1-5 watts per sign, or our exit sign, which only uses 1/4th of a watt. Greentorch also offers photoluminescent (glow-in-the-dark) and self-luminous tritium exit signs, which are both completely non-electrical. Over a ten-year period, the bulbs of an incandescent exit sign must be changed out 25-30 times, and the battery must be replaced 2 or 3 times. The ’s in our exit signs last 8-10 years, so you can forget about changing light bulbs. We also use long-lasting batteries that require replacement every 5 to 10 years. Our photoluminescent and self-luminous tritium exit signs do not require any type of electricity and can be simply mounted to most surfaces, with no need to hire an electrician. Our non-electrical line of exit signs are more eco-friendly than incandescent signs because they do not use electricity nor do they emit any heat or contain mercury. Furthermore, Greentorch come in aluminum that can be recycled.

- Tritium is an ideal option for locations where: it is difficult, costly, or impossible to supply electricity to a location, the environment contains materials or particles that can be ignited with electricity, the environment does not have enough light to charge a photoluminescent sign (i.e movie theater), or you do not want to pay for an electrician to install the sign. If you plan on being in a building for a long period of time, the trade-off is effective because non-electrical signs have no ongoing costs and last for 10,15 or 20 years, depending on the model.
