The 10 Best Lighted Exit Signs
This wiki has been updated 15 times since it was first published in February of 2019. Although you hope you never really need them, lighted exit signs are a critical piece of safety equipment for many settings, from businesses to churches. We've selected a range of models, including hardwired and photoluminescent. Code requirements can vary, so you must ensure that those you choose satisfy local regulations, and remember that you'll probably have to carry out regular testing. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

When it comes to lighted exit signs, there are options, so we selected models in the most popular categories: lighted plus emergency lighting, standard lighted, and photoluminescent. For many users, models that include emergency lighting are a fine choice for the extra peace of mind they can give, especially since they are relatively inexpensive; the LFI Lights Combo and Spectsun Emergency LED both tick all the boxes in this category. But standard lighted models, like the Lithonia Lighting Contractor Select M6, are also completely appropriate in some situations, perhaps in areas that simply don't see a lot of use. For those who are unable, for whatever reason, to complete the hardwiring process, options using photoluminescence are acceptable in many cases, which is why we included the Jessup Glo Brite 50-Foot and NightBright USA Photoluminescent.
