Q John • 07/06/2019, 10:19:40 AM Are the LED lamps illuminated only when the power fails? Or are they also illuminated from wall power when power is available. Or are they switchable between these two modes?
A Exit Light Co. The lights will only come on when power is lost. IF there is power to the unit, the lights will remain off.
Q Paul B. • 07/09/2020, 4:44:25 PM Can you suggest an LED emergency light for mounting to the ceiling that is 14 feet high? The instructions for EL-W2 say 8 feet maximum.
A Exit Light Co. Unfortunately we do not stock any emergency lights rated at 14 ft mounting height.
