Choosing the Right FlashlightFlashlight choice depends on intended use. Typically,there is no single light that works well in all situations.
In general, lights with incandescent xenon or halogenbulbs give highest performance and are best for distances. Both xenon and halogen bulbs provide highoutput for their size. Halogen bulbs may have a longer
life than xenon. Both requirereplacement and can fail on extreme impact.
Light Emitting Diode (or LED)bulbs are basically tiny light bulbsthat fit easily into an electrical cir-cuit. Unlike ordinary incandescentbulbs, they dont have a filamentthat will burn out, and they dontget especially hot. Normally, LEDbulbs do not require replacementand are excellent for close-upwork. LED bulbs can last up to100,000 hours in some flashlights.
Most low-wattage LED flashlightsoffer extremely long run times insome cases up to 30 days of continuous use. The run times of high-wattage LED flashlights,which provide increased bright-ness, are usually significantlyshorter than low-wattage LEDflashlights.
Choosing Rechargeable FlashlightsAlthough Flashlights powered by alkaline batteries are still the most commonchoice for many workers, more-and-more businesses are taking a closer lookat Rechargeable Flashlights as a money-saving option that can provide all thesame performance of a traditional flashlight.
Although slightly more expensive to purchase, Rechargeable Flashlightscost much less to use because the batteries can be recharged hundreds oftimes before they need to be replaced
Rechargeable Flashlights are an excellent choicefor work environments where flashlights are usedalmost daily. Simply plug the flashlight into the
charging rack at the end of the work shift andreturn the next day to a flashlight charged
to 100% power. Rechargeable Flashlights are
typically larger and heavier than traditional flashlights, so theyre idealfor heavy-duty use
Rechargeable Flashlights offer goodperformance in low temperatures
Rechargeable batteries are typically made withmade with nickel cadmium (NiCad)
Rechargeable batteries self-discharge quite rapidly, so its important thatthey are not stored for very long or they may not perform as expected when needed
The ThreeMain Styles of Exit Signs Exit Sign This is hard-wired into
the AC current of the building. Ifthere is a power outage, this signwill not stay lit. When not accom-panied by emergency lightingwith rechargeable batteries, this exit sign will not meet the life safety coderequirements.
Emergency Exit Sign This sign is also hard-wired into the AC current ofthe building. If there is a power outage, this sign has a battery backup that will illuminate the sign when itsenses no charge going to the battery. Photoluminescent Exit Sign This is a non-
electrical sign that glows in the dark. This sign is a great idea for new construction or newly designated exit routes, as no wiring is needed.
