FLOOR IDENTIFICATION SIGNS (FID)

The Photoluminescent Floor Identification Signs (FID) are an important part of egress safety due to the critical information that they provide. Ecoglo® FID meet International Code Council (ICC) and National Fire Protection Agency (NFPA) regulations. FID can be installed using a premium polyurethane adhesive and double-sided tape. The double-sided tape is there to provide initial bonding strength while the polyurethane adhesive is curing.

Weight: 2 lbs/sign.

Ecoglo FID Features:

  • Minimum size 18” by 12”
  • Tactile raised letters (ICC A1171.1 compliant)
  • Braille beads
  • 10 year warranty
  • Simple “peel and stick” installation with reliable 3M double sided tape pre-applied to signs
  • Safe to use – non-toxic and non-radioactive
  • Custom made for each location
  • Listed 1994; or ASTM E 2072, except that the charging source shall be 1 foot candle (11 lux) of fluorescent illumination for 60 minutes, and the minimum luminance shall be 30 millicandelas per square meter at 10 minutes and 5 millicandelas per square meter after 90 minutes.
