Getting out safely
Glo Brite® solutions in New York City after 9/11
When the World Trade Center towers in New York City were attacked and felled on September 11, 2001, well-marked stairwells saved many lives and poorly marked ones were factors in many tragedies. The International Building Code (IBC) and International Fire Code (IFC) were strengthened in subsequent years to assure that a luminous egress path would be visible in darkness and dense smoke.
Jessup developed Glo Brite® photoluminescent egress markings that met the rigorous new standards in New York. Markings are required for all doors, steps, landings, handrails, perimeters, and obstacles in most buildings. Markings are required for hospitals, schools, businesses, hotels, public assemblies and R-1 residential buildings that have occupied floors more than 75 feet above the lowest rung of the fire department’s hook and ladder.
Jessup provides New Yorkers with a full line of floor identification signs, safety signs, exit signs, tapes, treads, strips, and decals to make their buildings safe to exit. This system is the gold standard for other cities and public safety departments worldwide.
