April 25, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 234

The photoluminescent technology has been used in various industries such as entertainment and design for a long time now and within the last decade, the fluorescent-absorbing glow-in-the-dark lighting system has extended its environmental-friendly cost-conducive benefits into the fire safety industry.

Nowadays, the photoluminescent emergency exit lights have garnered the reputation that puts them high on the list as the most practical emergency lighting system solution there is in the market. So how do the photoluminescent exit lights help you save money and the environment?

The exit signs powered by photoluminescent materials do not need power consumption to stay illuminated. All they do to stay lit is by collecting energy from ambient fluorescent lighting available and within a brief exposure, these self-luminous exit lights will glow visibly in total darkness even when visibility is compromised through haze or smoke. You don't need to spend a dime on electrical wiring charges as well as installation fees.

Apart from that, the photoluminescent exit signage has a very high durability, lasting up to 25 years or more minus the usual costs spent on electrical-dependent emergency exit lights where you will have to spend on initial installation cost, operation to routine maintenance. With photoluminescent system, you do not have to fuss around with bulbs or parts replacements. These self-luminous non-electrical exit lights are sufficient as long as there's ambient light and the occasional inspection to detect wear.

The exit signage system powered by photoluminescence is accepted by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), an agency that has authority over the U.S. workplace safety. Favoring photoluminescent products, the Federal Energy Management Program now recommends the use of the technology over incandescent and tritium powered emergency lighting system.

With more focus given on environmentally-friendly products, building owners now have a responsibility to ensure that they invest in lighted exit signs that are recyclable and non-toxic to the ecosystem. And this is one of the reasons why photoluminescent emergency lighting has been pushed to the frontline as being the excellent practical solution.

Before long, zero-energy emergency exit light system that is green with high durability will be the only reasonable and logical choice for today's businesses. In the meantime, as a law-abiding, building owner, ask yourself if you have installed the best emergency lighting system for your business that places the safety of the building's occupants above all else? If not, what are you waiting for?
