Betalux b.v. presents an innovative choice for exit signage: self-luminous signs and markers. The most energy efficient emergency exit signs currently on the market, these versatile, rugged and durable products are redefining the emergency signage sector.
IT’S EASY BEING “GREEN”
Betalight’s self-luminous line of products is powered by a tritium light source (GTLS) that remains continuously illuminated. Betalight takes the waste product from the production of electricity used in homes and communities and turns it into an important life safety device. Maintenance-free and 100% self-luminous, this line contains products with a useful lifespan up to 15 years. At the end of its life, the materials contained within these products can be recycled. Betalight self-luminous
products meet all applicable ﬁre and building codes, and are available in a variety of ﬁnishes that complement any location. Ideally suited for applications where a reliable emergency exit sign is required, the durable construction of Betalight’s self-luminous products ensures constant, dependable operation for years to come.
HOW TO DETERMINE THE LIFE OF TRITIUM SIGNS
Tritium gas H3, like other radioisotopes, decays at a known rate. This rate is usually speciﬁed by the “half-life,” which is the time taken to decay to half the initial energy. For tritium, this is 12.3 years. In addition, the minimum brightness required to meet national and local codes for exit signs is well known. With these two ﬁgures, the exact amount of tritium required to produce light above the minimum brightness speciﬁcation can be calculated. Betalight B.V. offers signs with up to 20 years of guaranteed useful life before replacement is needed.
