If you have ever gone to a social, public, hospitality, or business area you may have noticed the glowing sign above the door with “EXIT” written on it. Exit signs such as LED exit signs are important within business and public areas for many reasons to help keep the public safe at all times. These signs are available in numerous colours and designs and may be more important than you think.
Reasons Why LED Exit Signs Are Important
One of the first reasons why exits signs are important in your business is to show customers or visitors which door you need to walk through to exit the building. These can be beneficial for larger businesses with many interconnecting doors and allows customers to go freely from a building in an organized fashion.
Another important reason why exit signs are used are to help visitors to find a way out during an emergency situation. During a fire, smoke may cause low visibility which makes it hard for people to find the exit door. With the use of an LED exit sign it can shine through the smoke clearly allowing panicked individuals to get out before serious injury or a fatality occurs.
Where To Place Exit Signs
Exit signs are generally placed above doors leading out of the building or to staircases that lead to lower levels of a multiple storey building. These signs shouldn’t be placed above windows unless they are leading to a safe way out of the building. Some exit signs are also accompanied by arrow signs which help to indicate the way to the exit when visibility is lowered. These signs are generally placed along hallways and staircases directing people which way to walk.
Overall exit signs are generally marked with clear symbols and wording which is highly recognizable in dark or emergency situations. They are mandatory in all business, public, and hospitality applications and can help to save lives each and every year. If you own a business that doesn’t have an exit sign, why not take the time to consider just how important this one sign is for your business and visitors.

I don’t know how familiar you are with grommets, so I thought I’d take some time today to highlight what is actually a very cool and useful (although oddly-named) category of products.
At some point or another, you’ve probably (at the very least) encountered grommets at work, whether they were built into a desktop or conference table, or installed in a countertop near a POS system. Most often, you’ll see them as black plastic rings that are fitted into the cutouts that allow cables to run through work surfaces – the whole idea being that the grommets will buffer the cutouts’ sharp edges so that cables aren’t accidentally scratched up or cut.
But lest you get the wrong idea, let me be quick to add that grommets aren’t limited to the standard-issue black plastic designs, or even to workplaces. You can find them in schools, theaters, entertainment complexes (think all those arcade games), and more than ever, in homes. And speaking of homes, the grommets just keep getting better to keep up with all of those HGTV-worthy upgrades we’re always after, like granite countertops, home theater setups, and modern furniture. There are grommets available in many different designer metal finishes, wood, and even a rainbow of plastics, so no matter what type of surface you need to run cables through, you can rest assured that even utilitarian grommets won’t drag down your decor.
In addition to different styles, materials and finishes, some grommets also multitask – that is to say, they do even more than just organize and protect cables. Some have built-in USB hubs, some have power outlets and data ports – I’ve even seen grommets that double as desk organizers and have compartments to hold pens and other small items. You never know what you might find.
Over the past few days, I keep seeing mentions of a college guy who decided to ditch the Internet (e-mail, social media, web surfing – you name it) as well as his cell phone for 90 days. During this time, he had infinitely more time to study, learned the value of a handwritten letter, found creative ways to meet up with friends and family, and was even able to win an old girlfriend back. After an extremely unplugged 3 months, he concluded that he’d found out who his true friends are, strengthened relationships with those who matter most, and gained an appreciation for the basic day-to-day social interactions that were facts of life as little as a generation ago, but are practically unknown in our current Facebook and text message addicted age.
To say the least, I was inspired, at least enough to break away from my usual ramblings about chargers and other accessories that pimp out the gadgets that are permanently glued in our hands and to our ears, and keep them ready for use now now now. While each of those things is great in its own respect, there’s also something to be said for things that don’t glow, beep, or have apps, so that’s what we’re sticking with today.
Meet BlueLounge® CableClips™, a line of multi-purpose cord wraps that very recently charmed me with their no-nonsense functionality and minimalistic good looks. They have a basic one-piece design that features two cord channels, and absolutely no components that will pinch cords or snap off. They’re made to keep excess cable length coiled and clipped together, and that’s exactly what they do – just push cords into CableClips through the lengthwise openings in the cable channels, and you’re organized. And like everything from BlueLounge, they’re aesthetically designed to complement, and not overwhelm, their surroundings.
Sometimes simple is just better.
