Photoluminescent Signage in Cincinnati

During power outages, fires, and other emergencies, the interior of a commercial building can be dark and hard to navigate. Emergency lighting helps in these situations, providing enough light for building occupants to evacuate safely, but these lights rely on batteries that can fail with age.

As an extra measure of protection for staff and visitors, photoluminescent signage is ideal. It requires no power, and it can easily provide over 30 minutes of light to let anyone in the building find the exits safely.

When you need a reliable way to illuminate evacuation routes and mark emergency exits when the power is out, turn to Alpha Insulation & Waterproofing. We offer custom luminous signage, stickers, and markers that can be installed in critical locations to aid in evacuations or warn of dangerous areas.

How Do Photoluminescent Products Work?

Photoluminescent signs or markers contain inorganic phosphors that can absorb energy from natural or artificial sources of light, then release that energy as visible light after dark or when the light source is removed. The light will gradually dim as the stored energy is used.

UL-listed photoluminescent signage provides at least 30 minutes of illumination, making them compliant with local building and fire codes, and they’re effective even in total blackout conditions.

Some products can provide as much as 30 hours of light, and they recharge anytime there’s a source of light present, such as fluorescent lights, incandescent lights or sunlight.
