An exit sign is a device in a public facility (such as a building, airplane or boat) that displays EXIT. BC Fire code requires exit signs be permanently lit. Its purpose is guiding people to the closest exit in case of fire or other emergency.

Since November, 2004 Canada’s Energy Efficiency Regulations require that all internally-lighted exit signs manufactured consume no more than five watts per word (Exit). At present, this means that most qualified signs use LED technology. LED exit signs consume between one and five watts. With notable energy savings and long life, LED exit signs benefit the environment.
