As the Electrical Contractor in Chicago working on a newly constructed office building, it's your job to source low-profile LED exit signs for installation throughout the offices spaces and hallways. Many of these areas have low-slung plenum ceilings and the fixtures must have battery backup in case of power outage. Sounds like just the job for the City of Chicago Approved Recessed Edge Lit Exit Sign.

The CHI-EDGE-BB-R-R has an unfinished cast aluminum backbox housing & junction box which conceal into the ceiling. The backbox has adjustable hanger bars for securing to joists. Other than the 'EXIT' panel, only a polished aluminum trim will be visible.
The bottom exit panel of the City of Chicago Approved Recessed Edge Lit is made of a high-polish, injection molded acrylic with slightly rounded edges. A red legal sized 'EXIT' stencil is molded into the acrylic, providing even light distribution. Single face and double face signs have a white mylar sheet within the panel, allowing the word EXIT to be seen clearly from up to 100 feet away.
