Luminous Egress in Florida

Requirements for luminous egress path markings became retroactive to existing high-rise buildings with the implementation of the 2015 International Building Code [see IFC 1104.25, 1025], adopted as part of the Florida Building Code 2017. As such, it is now mandatory for all new and existing high-rise commercial buildings in the state of Florida to install luminous egress signage and path markings in stairways and landings.

Luminous Egress Path Marking Code Compliance in Florida

The requirements set out in Section 1025 of the International Building code add a level of safety to a building’s egress path through the requirement of photoluminescent, or self-luminous path marking products. To meet code compliance, this product must not require electrical power and the associated wiring circuits. Even if the building’s power goes out, the egress path will stay be brightly lit, thanks to luminous egress path marking products. 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.
