Product Description


As you browse our extensive catalog of emergency lighting and exit signs, you'll notice a number of all-weather and waterproof models that have optional battery heating units. These thermostatically activated battery warmers encase the nickel cadmium battery within the exit sign fixture, maintaining a nominal operating temperature in conditions as low as -4° fahrenheit.

However, as you go into the Great White North of the United States and Canada, temperatures can regularly drop far lower than -4° during the winter. For these locations, our manufacturers have developed the CWX series of cold weather exit signs.


  • Thermostatic warmer will maintain battery in temperatures as low as -40° F.
  • Efficient LED strips consume only 5 watts of electricity
  • Continuous self-testing eliminates the need for physical battery tests
  • Magnetic test switch for manual testing
  • Vandalproof hardware and tool (included)
  • UL 924 Listed


Cold weather exit signs look almost identical to indoor thermoplastic units, but can be used in a number of harsh environments both indoors and outdoors.

Common locations include:

  • Hosedown areas/car washes
  • Close to high-traffic egress doors that lead to cold weather exteriors
  • Warehouse & cold storage facilities
  • Close proximity to frozen lakes
  • Ski resorts

Exterior Specifications

Cold weather exit signs have a robust polyvinyl chloride body that will not dent, flake, rust or corrode. A clear vandal-resistant polycarbonate lens protects the 'exit' face and is lined with a gasket, completely sealing the exit sign and forming a watertight enclosure around the circuits, battery and LED strip.

Cold weather exit signs are fastened with stainless steel screws that require a tool with a unique bit to loosen. Combined with the shatter-proof polycarbonate visor, these cold weather exit signs are quite tamper proof.

Electrical Specifications

  • Dual 120/277 VAC powers the sign and charges the battery
  • Fully automatic, solid state charger
  • Sealed, maintenance-free nickel cadmium battery provides 90 minutes of emergency illumination


5-year warranty on the exit sign; 5 year pro-rated warranty for the battery.


Housing and Face Colors - choose from a number of color combinations for the exit sign face and body.

Face Styles - before placing your order, select single or double-sided styles.

Canopy Pendant Mount - for overhead installation in overhangs and awnings.

NEMA 4X Rating - the manufacturer will subject the unit to a series of grueling tests to ensure its survivability in sub-freezing temperatures and that it will provide a level of protection against corrosion. 

Alarm Activated Flasher - the unit will detect klaxons and strobe its lettering to increase the exit sign's visibility during an emergency.

3-Year Warranty.
