Your Guide to Glow-in-the-Dark Exit Signs
Looking to make your building more green? Or maybe you’re just tired of paying hefty electricity bills month after month? Whatever the reason, many building owners are looking into glow-in-the-dark exit signs as an alternative to LED exit signs. As a leader in photoluminescent films and strips, Jessup Manufacturing is breaking down the facts on these popular exit signs.
90 Minutes of Uninterrupted Glow
That’s right. Glow-in-the-dark exit signs that are UL 924 listed will provide a minimum of 90 minutes of illumination in low or no light conditions. This meets NFPA and OSHA requirements around exit signs. The longer the photoluminescent exit sign is exposed to natural or artificial light the longer you can expect it to glow in the dark.
No Wires, No Batteries, No Kidding
The U.S. Department of Energy states that photoluminescent exit signs are the most energy efficient exit signs available today. Because the technology works on phosphor within the sign, it requires zero electricity or batteries to operate. Completely self-luminous also means less maintenance because no monthly battery checks are required.
Non-Toxic and Recyclable
Besides lower energy usage, these glow-in-the-dark signs are non-toxic and recyclable. The safest exit sign on the market, this is an excellent option for buildings looking to decrease their carbon footprint. Phosphor is a non-toxic material and the signs are made to be recycled after they extend their 25 year lifespan.
