How are exit signs similar to emergency lights?

Exit signs that are internally lighted operate in much the same way as emergency lights. Because they stay on all the time, many of them have two sets of bulbs. One set, that is normally on, operates on 110 volt building power. The second set, which comes on only when there is a power failure, are low voltage bulbs that operate on the battery only.

Which is better a flashing light or a beacon?

The takeaway: beacon or flashing lights are useful in low light conditions, but flash in workers’ eyes in good light conditions. LED floor projection lights are better as warning systems. Another added: “Really there should just be lights on the ground on all directions to showcase a forklift is coming around the corner. Not a blinking light.”
