Exit path markings play a critical role in your fire and life safety systems, even more so in high-rises and other buildings with complicated floor plans, windowless areas, etc. Effective signs help guide employees, guests, tenants and other occupants of a building to safe and effective evacuation routes in an emergency, but they can only do that if people can see them. When your lighting is working, normal signage works — it’s even effective in most cases with relatively reduced lighting.
But in a complete blackout or other situations which reduce visibility, photoluminescent signs and products can’t be matched for safe guidance. If you want to ensure the full protection of the guests in your buildings and meet or exceed any and all relevant standards and regulations your building’s exit markings could be held against, work with the team at Alpha Insulation & Waterproofing to find and install the right photoluminescent products.
Photoluminescent signs work much the same as any glow-in-the-dark toy or accessory a child might play with. The materials on these signs naturally store energy when exposed to light and release visible energy, which causes them to “light up” when it is dark. By making photoluminescent signage in compliance with building and fire codes standards, you can have a fully compliant set of exit markings and other signage that works no matter what the power situation may be.
These products can be expected to produce light for at least 30 minutes, with some lasting well over 24 hours without recharging — and you can expect them to function for decades with minimal maintenance or attention.
