FIREFLY™ photoluminescent products
EASILY FIND THE EXIT
Ensuring that the exit signs can be easily seen when the power fails is an important consideration. To this end, you may want to choose photoluminescent signs. These signs will have materials in them that are capable of glowing in the dark, which can allow these signs to be seen without the need to install emergency lighting systems.
Photoluminescent exit path markings standards are intended to provide minimum requirements for photoluminescent exit path markings that will aid in evacuation from buildings in the event of failure of both the power and back-up power to the lighting and illuminated exit signs. Photoluminescent material is charged by exposure to light and will emit luminance after the activating light source is unavailable.
EGRESS PATH ELEMENTS IN DARK CONDITIONS
The markings covered by this standard are not designed to provide enough light to illuminate a dark egress path, but rather will provide luminescent signs and outlines of the egress path, stairs, handrails, and obstacles, so that occupants can discern these egress path elements in dark conditions. The markings are generally required to be located at a low location in case of smoke and to be readily seen, such as in a crowd situation.
They are in addition to, and not as a substitute for, any other signage required under the Building Code, such as electrically illuminated exit signs with electrical back-up power required under § 27-383(a).
