Sure-Lites, a division of Cooper Lighting, has relaunched its collection of die-cast, plastic, and steel exit signs. The CX, LPX, and SLX Exit Signs are now available with red and green letters in one universal package. Sure-Lites has also added its EZ Key external battery disconnect technology, which helps reduce installation time and prevents unnecessary battery drainage. The signs feature lower wattage and faster battery recharge time. They also have a die-cast aluminum housing and can be ceiling-, wall-, or end-mounted. Three finishes are available: black housing with brushed aluminum face, white housing with white face, or black housing with black face. surelites-lighting.com
