Luminous Egress in Connecticut

The installation of luminous egress path markings and signage in exit stairways is mandatory in all new and existing high-rise commercial buildings in the state of Connecticut, under the 2018 Connecticut State Building Code, which adopts the 2015 International Building Code [see IFC 1104.25, 1025].

For luminous egress solutions in Connecticut, you can rely on ecoglo® to outfit your building with durable, long-lasting products that are not only cost-effective but completely code compliant.

Providing a Safe Illuminated Egress Path

When the power fails, ecoglo® products thrive. Because our photoluminescent egress path markings do not require batteries, wiring or any back up power you can trust them to provide reliable egress lighting when the power fails. After gaining a charge from exposure to a natural or artificial light source, ecoglo®’s luminous egress path markings are ready to glow for hours, lighting the way to the exit discharge.

It is critical that stair treads, handrails and any obstructions within the exit path remain visible at all times in order to provide a safe egress. During emergency conditions this is especially important, as visibility can often be negatively affected, which can leave patrons feeling anxious about where to go. As such, providing a reliable source of emergency lighting, within an easy to follow egress pathway is critical for occupant safety and faster egress speeds.

Work with ecoglo® to create a failsafe, fully code compliant, and highly custom luminous egress path marking system in your Connecticut facility, at the most cost-effective price point on the market.

Luminous Egress Path Marking Code Compliance in Connecticut

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