One of the most frustrating issues building owners have had to face for years is the exorbitant energy consumption coming from the approved safety signs used in their buildings. Older model emergency exit signs were not only expensive to install, they were also an incredible energy consumers that were sending energy bills through the roof. Nevertheless, as a building owner, what can you do? You have to have egress signage installed in your building. For the longest time, building owners merely dealt with the horrendous problem, chalking it up as a ‘necessary expense’ in order to promote safety in their building. Luckily, recent technology has changed the way safety signs store and consume energy, and the fact that newly approved safety signs are using zero energy will blow your mind.
Photoluminescent technology is a new method of providing emergency exit signs, where the benefits far outweigh any other type of safety sign technology that has ever been out on the market. Photoluminescent signage are able to store the energy that comes from ambient light, and then uses that energy to maintain a bright glow that is clear and visible as far as the eye can see. Does it sound too good to be true? Fortunately, it is not. As a matter of fact, photoluminescent technology has been tried and tested by regulatory committees to the point that these organizations have begun to make the use of photolumoinescent technology in egress markings mandatory.
To find out more about photoluminescent technology, and how its implementation can not only save you money, but also make your building safer, call GloBrite. GloBrite will thoroughly explain how photoluminescent technology works, and why these kinds of approved safety signs that use zero energy are the best emergency signs to have ever come on the market. GloBrite can help you with the purchasing and installation of these zero energy using safety signs, along with any other safety information you might need.
