Photoluminescent Signs & Products in Atlanta, GA

Trying to ensure your building is fully compliant with all relevant codes and standards governing your fire and life safety systems? Interested in making your employees, tenants or guests as safe as possible when an emergency occurs? Whatever your goals or motivations, effective emergency signage such as exit markings play a vital role in getting people from dangerous places to safe ones when something goes wrong.

Traditional signage works fine when your lighting is intact, but when something goes wrong, and even backup lighting becomes unavailable, photoluminescent signage is the only option that will remain effective. With no need for a power source and operation times ranging from 30 minutes to 30 hours, you can rest easy knowing that people will be able to safely find the exits and navigate difficult footing — no matter the situation.

How Photoluminescent Products Work

Photoluminescent products such as exit signs, adhesive strips and placards are typically quite simple in concept. By using photoluminescent materials which store energy when exposed to light and release it when it’s dark, you end up with signage that glows in the dark without any need for an external power source or battery. This trait, combined with their simplicity, makes them an exceptional choice for any safety system.

These products are built to comply with the standards of the National Fire Protection Association and the Underwriters Laboratories, meaning they’ll meet or exceed the standards set by nearly any relevant fire code or building code you might need to meet — and if you need something more specific or advanced, the team at Alpha Insulation and Waterproofing can help you find what you’re looking for and install it to spec.
