About $87 per sign. Arent exit signs supposed to be about $20 maximum, maybe a bit more than that for explosion-proofing in high dust/high volatile fume areas?

We just replaced some NON-WORKING exit signs with the LED ones. They did not cost $87.00 each. Even with labor to install them and paint to cover up the exposed wall behind since they are smaller than the old ones.

Amazon has them for $20 - $25 with free shipping.

Ridiculous, why do they think it is necessary to replace all their working signs to save a few watts.

I was in the AF for 28 years and was always amused by its “spend dollars to save pennies” approach to just about everything.
