Considering Photoluminescent Exit Signs?
Then Consider these 7 Great Ideas
- Working on a new building project? Instead of LED exit signs or radioactive Tritium exit signs use photoluminescent exit signs for a safer, less expensive and greener installation.
- Many Architects and Engineers don’t know that photoluminescent exit signs can be used in high level applications.
For several years now, photoluminescent exit signs, compliant to NFPA and most building codes, have been installed as high level exit signs in hotels, condos, schools, corporate centers and parking garages.
- Change out radioactive Tritium exit signs to photoluminescent exit signs to minimize building occupant exposure to radioactivity and to address disposal issues now. Remember, the US Government has banned Tritium exit signs in military facilities. Additionally, they are not allowed in many schools and corporate centers.
- Replacing the back-up battery packs and light bulbs in electrically powered exit signs is time consuming and expensive. Not keeping up with this maintenance and code-mandatory testing can marginalize the safety of building occupants. Avoid these problems by installing photoluminescent exit signs in hallways, corridors, offices and parking garages.
- In areas where lighting is controlled by timers or sensors, install photoluminescent exit signs adjacent to lighting that is on emergency lighting circuits – circuits that are energized all the time.
- Most parking garages are illuminated with ample fluorescent lighting. To save installation, operating and maintenance costs, install photoluminescent exit signs instead of LED and radioactive Tritium exit signs.
- Smart architects and engineers specify photoluminescent exit signs with 75 foot viewing distances to save installation costs.
