Q Jim Hallaren • 07/03/2019, 2:55:43 PM Is a white glass with red letters version available to meet City of Chicago Code. Need single faced sign that can be mounted on a 45 degree sloped ceiling. Thanks
A Exit Light Co. This unit would not be City of Chicago approved. Unfortunately we do not carry an Edge Lit City of Chicago approved exit sign.
Q john ciancimino • 09/09/2019, 11:41:10 AM is there a replacement kit for the plexi lettering on the double sided model
A Exit Light Co. If the unit was purchased from us we can supply extra face plates. Please contact us directly with your order number.
Q Carlos Julio Rodriguez • 11/03/2023, 2:28:41 PM to change the battery, need to turn the power off..
A Exit Light Co. Any time you are working with electricity, it is recommended to turn off power. We also suggest using a certified electrician when working with electrical products.
Q Tiana Alderson • 03/26/2024, 11:28:54 AM The SKU I have from a project is NYCELRT-R-A-BB-SC. Did SC change to S?
A Exit Light Co. The default code for "Single Clear" is "S", since the NYC version of this unit is not currently available with any other single sided faceplate options.
