Photoluminescent Signs will illuminate an escape route or important message when there is a power failure or when light sources are obscured by smoke.
Visual communications compete with one another – in any emergency a photoluminescent safety message will stand out from other less important information.
These signs provide 3-4 times the luminance performance when compared to P.S.P.A. Class A materials.
They also comply with the recommendations of the British Standard Document BS5499-Part 4 : 2000.
It recommends the use of the internationally recognised graphical symbol for escape routes, which meet the requirements of the Health & Safety (Safety Signs and Signals) Regulations 1996 (SI No.341). It also recommends the use of upper and lower case lettering – visually impaired people read and understand words with an initial upper case letter more clearly.
Fire Exit Signs can be used as single sided-hanging signs – simply drill two holes in the top border of the chosen sign.
Fire Extinguisher Identification Signs contain graphical symbols from EN3-5: 1996, with instructions on which fires the extinguisher is safe to use and which it is not.
