"The Quality Name in Emergency Lighting"
Since the introduction of our first product in 1978, Emergi-Lite has pioneered and has led engineering specifications in the manufacture of reliable, quality emergency lighting equipment.
Over the years, we have gained worldwide recognition as an innovative industry leader producing the best emergency lighting life safety equipment – a leadership position attained through our continuing strict adherence to the most rigorous control standards known to the industry. Our North American manufacturing facility is unique to the industry since every product is manufactured under one roof and distributed to either our loyal stocking distributors or directly to a new or renovated facility.
The latest technology goes into our "Advanced Diagnostic” (AD) board design and the energy efficient ALINGAP LED lamps utilized in our exit signs. Every Emergi-Lite product – from our small capacity plastic units to our decorative architectural units and large cabinet extra wattage capacity units – is line tested to meet the rigorous standards of emergency lighting performance before shipment to the field. As part of the Thomas & Betts family, our ongoing commitment is to provide products of the highest quality at competitive prices – products like our newly-released NEMA-4X family of products and our decorative indoor and outdoor remote fixtures. Our continued growth, success and high levels of customer satisfaction are proof that we are accomplishing our goals.
In this catalog, we are proud to present the complete range of Emergi-Lite emergency lighting equipment, products we believe are amongst the finest available anywhere in the world.

New York Approved
New York City requires that any exit signs and emergency lights:
- Meets New York City Electrical Code (meets UL certification)
- NFPA & OSHA require initial illumination of 1 foot-candle and a minimum at any point of 0.1 foot-candle. New York City emergency lighting requires TWICE that (an average of 2 foot-candle or 22 lux and a minimum at any point of 0.2 foot-candle or 2.15 lux measured along the path of egress at floor level). This is why The Exit Light Company recommend emergency lights with nine (9) watts on each head. Since even with the requirement for brighter lighting, the minimum standard of 90 minutes of run-time on battery backup power is in effect, NYC Code approved emergency lights are heavy-duty units with larger batteries.
- The letters of exit signs and exit sign/emergency light combos are mandated to be red.
- The height of letters shall be not less than 6 inches (152 mm), except that in Group A (theaters and concert halls) and Group R-1 (Shelters, Fraternity & Sorority Houses) occupancies letters shall be not less than 8 inches (203 mm) high. A change from previous years, now U.S. standard 6" exit signs are acceptable in most locations, but certain locales still require 8" exit signs.
- All signs shall be of metal or other durable materials.
- All high-rise buildings require photoluminescent exit path markings for egress routes.
