Photoluminescent Exit Signs

Exit Signs is the commonly used  term for the provision of signs that are intended to make doors that lead to escape routes or are on escape paths distinguishable and easily recognised. Exit signs, in the most limited context, are signs located above the doors and are commonly considered to be part of the provisions of emergency lighting that are required by building regulations.


Photoluminescent Exit Signs provide for a display of directional information along the escape routes that reinforce the confidence of evacuees to move even under power failure conditions.
