Want to ensure your buildings exceed all relevant fire and building safety system standards for signage without complex, difficult-to-maintain solutions or reliance on primary or backup electrical systems? Good signage is critical to getting the population of a building to a safe place when an emergency strikes, but it can’t guide people if they cannot see it — and they can’t see it if the power has been cut by fires or other disasters.
That’s where photoluminescent signage for your exit path markings comes into play: By leveraging glow-in-the-dark materials in your signage, you can ensure a simple, reliable solution for emergency guidance in any environment.

Glow-in-the-dark photoluminescent signage works by having the parts that need to “glow” made of photoluminescent materials. These are materials that store energy when exposed to light. This stored energy is released in the dark and makes the signs, guidance strips, etc., visible to occupants of your building. This means that when the lights cut out or visibility drops for other reasons, your signs will stay visible and glowing.
Our signs are built to meet or exceed compliance requirements for various fire and building codes and standards, including but not limited to NFPA standards and Underwriters Laboratories standards. To be listed by the Underwriters Laboratories, photoluminescent signage must last for a minimum of 30 minutes; some units will even last as long as 30 hours, and all signs will work in a complete blackout so long as they’ve spent time charging in the presence of a lightbulb or other source of light in advance.
