Exit Signs

exit signThere are not too many blogs that I’ve found out there providing quality links to construction materials and products of use to the builder and those in the industry. Perhaps the assumption is that these people are too busy to hanging around on the internet blogging all day. These days I’m mostly involving myself with the Civil and heavier infrastructure side of the construction industry, but over the years I’ve learnt a bit about the building industry and relevant codes.

But really, I didn’t know much about the existence of products such as photoluminescent exit signs , but now that I’ve read up on them it seems rather obvious! The thought of getting stuck in a high rise building without knowing which way to go to get out is pretty scary, and that’s why there is legislation in all developed countries regarding the installation of Exit Signs.

With Ecoglo’s visibly brighter photoluminescence, step edges and the path forward are easier to see, making for faster, safer egress.

Ecoglo’s patented technology bonds highly visible photoluminescent polymers and non-slip compound to high-grade aluminum strips to provide superior step edge definition whether in a fully lit, dim or completely dark environment.

Each photoluminescent strip is activated by natural or artificial light and then emits a steady luminous glow guiding people safely up steps and through passages in all conditions.

Ecoglo supplies some of the world’s most popular self luminous exit signs which don’t require an external source of electricity, (meeting the Canadian Standard for Photoluminescent and Self-Luminous Exit Signs ULC/ORD-C924-02). Some experts have stated that, had there been photoluminescent exit signs in use during certain specific emergency evacuations, more people would have made it to safety. When your exit signs rely too heavily on electricity, you’re setting yourself up for serious sign failure. The store is obviously designed for tradespeople to source a variety of quality signs and markers. But if you are in the market for signs, markers and stair strips, check out EcoGlo.
