The Hidden Cost of Exit Sign Vandalism

Unfortunately EXIT Signs can be subject to being repeatedly damaged and purchasing a replacement and hiring an electrician to install makes it an extremely costly affair. Brown University reported Exit signs vandals have cost them over $30,000 a year in replacing damaged Exit signs. They are not alone with many universities reporting similar frustrations having to replace broken signs and deal with the safety hazard of having to ensure all signs are functioning.  Just have a look at how some students proudly demonstrate their abilities on youtube.
Even with sturdy guards in place exit signs can still be damaged, at which point the extra protection may serve to make maintenance more difficult, time consuming, and more costly to replace both the exit sign and protection.
