Luminous Egress in California

Requirements for luminous egress path markings became retroactive to existing high-rise buildings with the implementation of the 2018 International Building Code [see IFC 1104.25, 1025], adopted as part of the California Building Code 2019, which went into effect statewide January 1, 2020. As such, it is now mandatory for all new and existing high-rise commercial buildings in the state of California to install luminous egress signage and path markings in stairwells and landings.

Luminous Egress Path Marking Code Compliance in Florida

Section 1025 provisions provide an additional level of safety to buildings’ egress paths by requiring the installation of photoluminescent or self-illuminating marking systems that do not require electrical power and the associated wiring and circuits. This means that even if a building’s power supply fails to operate, photoluminescent egress markings ensures occupants can safely egress a building via exit stairways. This is especially necessary in high-rise buildings, which feature a greater anticipated occupant load and occupants which way not be familiar with the emergency exit path.

Fire and Building Safety

Through the power of training and education, it is the goal of the California State Fire Marshal to create a fire-safe environment for the people of California. As part of creating a fire-safe environment is it imperative for facilities to install a luminous egress path marking system, guiding residents and occupants to safety, no matter the conditions.
