Featured Products: Simplicity Edge-Lit Exit Sign

With a portfolio that includes managing over 3 million square feet of commercial office, retail, and mixed-use space throughout the DMV area, Polinger Company manages a large volume of commercial real estate properties. They have a reputation for high quality life and work environments for residents and corporate tenants.

The Opportunity

Recognizing a desire to streamline processes, Polinger reached out to Bay Lighting for a better solution to exit signs. As with many companies, exit signs were predetermined based on architectural plans and with large scale buildings it wasn’t an effective use of time to count each sign, determine the mount style, facing, and the direction of the chevrons. Polinger was typically ordering based on their best guess which, at times, was unreliable and caused delay.

Bay Lighting Solution

After talking with Polinger, Bay Lighting recommended an edge-lit exit sign that allowed for field adjustments. These signs could be easily changed to single or double facing, right or left directional arrows, and surface or recessed mounting styles. This one size fits all approach allowed for total flexibility and consistency,and became the standard in exit signs, saving Polinger employees time and needless worry.

The Benefits

By implementing this product, Polinger has saved time and frustration for employees relying on estimating exit sign orders in the past. Project managers have also reduced waste and eliminated any delays due to incorrect materials.
By setting the standard for flexible exit signs, Polinger Company has saved time, money, and frustration at numerous commercial office and multi-family properties. One such property is 601 New Jersey Avenue in Washington, DC, pictured below.

    In April, the Department of Energy finalized two rules requiring manufactures to sell energy-efficient lightbulbs. This means older, inefficient lightbulbs that don’t meet the new standards can no longer be manufactured and sold. The primary purposes for these rules are to drive down electricity use, save consumers money, and decrease greenhouse gas emissions.

    It’s estimated that schools spend billions of dollars annually on energy, and it’s often the second-highest operating expenditure (following personnel costs). Each year, these expenses continue to increase while budgets often decrease, leading educators to look for ways to save money throughout the year. One way is by making some lighting updates that are more energy efficient, therefore saving money on energy bills. LED uses up to 75% less energy than conventional lighting systems, which keeps dollars in your budget for other important things.
