Decorative Emergency Lighting

When designing public buildings such as retail outlets and office spaces, architects have very specific aesthetics guiding their choices. Exit signs and emergency lighting systems are required by law, but designers want that signage and lighting to fit the look they’re designing. Luckily, there are a variety of decorative emergency signs and lighting systems available. Any designer can find signs and systems that fit their specific vision.

Of course, when shopping for decorative emergency lighting, the designer has to consider more than their appearance. There are codes with which they must comply, and finding decorative lighting systems that meet these requirements is essential. They also must comply with the desires of their clients. Most clients want emergency signage and lighting that is cost effective and energy efficient. It isn’t enough for decorative emergency lighting to look great. It also has to meet the needs of the public in case of an emergency—and it must fit into the client’s specific vision.

Emergency lighting systems and signs come in a variety of styles and colors to meet the needs of architects and designers. Whatever look or feel they’re going for, they’re sure to find signs and systems that comply with all the requirements while meeting their style needs. LED lights are especially popular, providing both an energy efficient, cost effective emergency system that works with a clean, aesthetically pleasing appearance.

When choosing from a variety of colors, safety is still an important consideration. When selecting a flat placard sign, contrasting the color of the lettering with the background color (for instance a black background with white lettering) will make it much easier to see and follow. Decorative exit signs that hang from the ceiling can incorporate the latest in safety technology. Photoluminescent exit signs are often required by city codes, and looking for this feature doesn’t have to diminish the design sense of decorative emergency lighting and signage.

Functionality is another major factor. Look for decorative emergency lighting that meets high lighting standards, has a low toxicity, and will serve evacuees well in cases of emergency. Ultimately, while it’s easy to find signs that look great, it’s most important that they serve their purpose effectively.
