Product Description


Exit signs are required fixtures both inside and outside of a building to clearly mark egress points in total darkness, typically during a power failure. Indoors, exit signs are made of lightweight plastic, costing less than $20 per unit.

However, in outdoor applications the battery and circuitry in plastic signs will quickly corrode and malfunction due to rain, snow and other inclement weather. Wet location exit signs are built specifically for these tough environments.


  • Weatherproof and wet location rated
  • LED 'exit' lettering uses less than 5 watts
  • Gasket seal repels water and moisture leakage
  • Sealed battery test switch
  • UL924 Listed for the United States
  • 5 year warranty


Wet location exit signs are ideal for building exteriors, hose-down areas and industrial zones. Their water tight construction offers a degree of impact-resistance, making these fixtures tougher than interior thermoplastic exit signs. 

A universal keyhole pattern on the back of the housing allows the exit sign to attach to most any AC conduit. Wall, ceiling or end mounting brackets are available.

External Specifications

The WLX series has a corrosion-proof fiberglass housing that holds the circuitry, battery and LED strip. A clear polycarbonate lens plate covers the exit sign face and is secured by four polycarbonate pressure screws.

Internal Specifications

To prevent water from leaking into the housing, a gasket has been hot-bonded to the lens, forming a watertight seal. This gasket has a 'memory', meaning it always reasserts it's original factory design so they won't leak over time.

Black, white and red conduit cables are included for AC hookup. Use the black and white wires for 120v AC; red and white wires for 277v AC connections.

Dual 120/277v AC dual-voltage powers the sign and charges the battery.
