EXIT Signs for New Builds & Construction
Change over Solution for Existing Buildings

 Does your premises comply with emergency and exit lighting law?

Photoluminescent signs offer a much more reliable,

cost effective exit sign solution for buildings and

can be installed at about the same cost as

your traditional Exit signs.

Exit Signs are a first line of defence for emergency situations. Traditional exit signs operate on batteries recharged by electrical power, which means additional costs for electricity, installation, plus regular maintenance and inspections.

Most facilities continue to utilise the old incandescent lamp technology which is maintenance intensive and prone to failure. Regular inspections are required and necessary to ensure optimal performance in an emergency situation.

Photo luminescent exit signs are a relatively new technology that absorbs ambient light and then illuminates, or glows in the dark, using the stored energy.

These signs are tested to ASTM E2073-10 using NCC2014 E4.8 specification may be used.

For more information refer to Australian Building Codes Board http://www.abcb.gov.au/ 

Between the inspections, parts replacement, electric costs, and other maintenance, exit lights cost more than just the initial unit purchase.

 

Electricity and upkeep costs may not seem like a big deal from year to year, but add all those expenses up  for one light for its 25 years of service, and you start to see some big numbers. All of that money could be put towards a more pressing need.

Photoluminescent exit signs are becoming more popular because of the very unique benefits they have to offer. 

 

Since the signs store energy from the buildings ambient lighting the signs require no connection to power, no battery, and no light bulbs or related maintenance, eliminating the cost of upkeep. 

 

The lifespan of a glow in the dark light in normal conditions is upwards of 25 years and the light will remain visible for up to 9 hours in total darkness once the light is fully “charged.”

These exit signs must still be tested and documented every 180 days for 90 minutes.

The sign must stay visibly illuminated for the duration of the test. A visual inspection must also be done to ensure the sign is clean and not damaged. If the sign is dirty or damaged it should be wiped down with soap and water or replaced.

To meet the qualifications set to use photoluminescent signs and to charge the sign properly, the ambient light of the building must provide 54 lux at the face of the sign.

 

Under 2% of installations cannot provide adequate light and must be illuminated. We utilise a small wattage LED to keep the light on to charge your exit sign which must also have access to light switches or dimmers restricted.
