Turn-key projects might include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Retrofit – This process includes utilizing existing technology while also upgrading with new energy-efficient solutions. Many customers have worked with us to retrofit their location to reduce energy footprints significantly.

  • Collect lamps in a separate container to avoid breakage. We recommend using the box that your new lamps arrived in and, as a reminder, we do not accept broken lamps

Emergency lights typically have a battery back-up that will operate the light in the event the power goes out, regardless of if there’s a generator for back-up power. Exit signs can and should also have a battery, especially if the building doesn’t have generator. Often during fire department inspections, they check that your emergency lights are operational, both with and without power. Emergency lights must be kept properly maintained to meet all federal and state requirements, so when installing new ones or updating old ones, should you just change the battery or replace the entire fixture?
