Product Description


Fluorescent emergency lights are ideal for business owners or building managers who wish to combine their general lighting with emergency lights. T8-ELs are a code-compliant yet cost-effective emergency lighting solution for many businesses.

These lights are essentially normal T8 fluorescent fixtures with a shock-resistant housing and an emergency ballast that will switch over to emergency backup power seconds after a blackout is detected. Like all emergency fixtures, T8s will continue lighting for at least 90 minutes on battery power.


  • Long-lasting T8 fluorescent tubes
  • Designed for commercial and heavy industry application
  • Polycarbonate vandal-proof cover
  • Provides general lighting during normal operation
  • 90-minute emergency run time


The T8-EL series has a three piece snap-together design that requires no tools and can be ceiling or wall-mounted in the following locations:

  • Parking structures
  • Warehouses
  • Breezeways
  • Canopies
  • Food service environments


These fluorescent emergency lights are built with 100% UV stabilized polycarbonate material, sealed with integrated liquid silicone gaskets to protect the bulbs from moisture buildup. The clear polycarbonate lens plate is flame, corrosion and impact resistant.

These units weigh 6.5 lbs and are available in 2ft and 4ft versions. Recessed stainless steel mounting brackets have memory retention, meaning they will naturally bend back to their original state if the light is accidentally bumped.


  • 3-wire solid type 18 wag 12'' leads for quick connection to AC source
  • Solid state charging circuitry
  • Low voltage disconnect, AC lockout and brownout protection
  • Also available in a 347v or 480v AC operation modes

Lamp Specifications

One or two T8 fluorescent tubes provide long lasting, brilliant illumination. Tubes can be used continuously for 10-12,000 hours.

Parabolic high-emission reflectors behind the bulbs have a metallic finish for efficient light distribution, while a CLE diffuser on the polycarbonate lens color-corrects the emitted lighting. 


T8 fluorescent emergency lights take a nickel cadmium (NiCad) battery which will last between 5-7 years and has a max operating temperature of 122° F.


Make sure to specify these optional features and mounting heights when ordering your T8 emergency light.

Pendant Kit - Allows the unit to be mounted from a high ceiling. Standard 1/2 inch conduit piping is included with a canopy attachment.

Chain Hang Kit - Perfect for warehouse and other industrial applications, this chain kit allows you to hang the light rather than hard-mount it.

Tamper Proof - Provides vandalproof material and fasteners that are incredibly difficult to take apart without special tools. Popular for prisons, schools, and hospitals.
