Fire? Power failure? Weather emergency? When a building or public transit vehicle is plunged into darkness, photoluminescent substrates make critical signage visible. In fact, both the NFPA (National Fire Protection Association) and the ICC (International Code Council) recently added Luminous Egress Path Markings to domestic codes for a multitude of facility types, such as offices, schools, hotels and other public buildings. Ensure your building or vehicle can quickly communicate directions, fire extinguisher locations, exits and other messages that enhance safety.
The photoluminescent message is “turned on” by ambient light (fluorescent, metal halide, mercury vapor, sunlight, incandescent) and becomes visible anytime the ambient light is lower than the photoluminescent message. When exposed to light, the photoluminescent substrate recharges. In fact, look forward to a 25-year luminance life expectancy in typical indoor building environments. Plus, the adhesive-backed, flexible signs work well on flat and curved surfaces, and are durable enough for floor markings. In Chicago, commuters find Gallas photoluminescent signage on Chicago Transit Authority (CTA) trains and buses as well as regional Metra trains.
