Luminous Egress in Indiana

Requirements for luminous egress path markings become retroactive to existing high-rise buildings with the adoption of the 2012 International Building Code [see IFC 1104.25, 1025], which was adopted state wide as part of the Indiana Building Code, which came into effect December 2014. Consequently, it is mandatory for all new and existing high-rise commercial buildings across the state to install luminous egress signage and path markings in stairwells and landings, as per local code guidelines. 

Ecoglo® has perfected the manufacturing process to bring you luminous egress path markings with the best photoluminescent properties on the market.

Providing a Safe and Illuminated Egress Path

If the power in your Indiana facility fails, you can rely on Ecoglo® products to keep the egress pathway brightly lit, and allowing occupants to safely and quickly find their way to the exit discharge. 

The visibility of stair treads, handrails, and other obstructions within an egress pathway is crucial, especially in emergency conditions. People’s vision can often be compromised under such circumstances, especially since they are under duress, so it is crucial for patrons of buildings to be able to easily find their way out to safety.

Luminous and photoluminescent marking systems can save lives, as they glow brightly, even through smoke, when everything else fails, acting as the last line of defense for a building’s occupants. 

Our industry-leading and cost effective luminous egress path markings make it easier than ever to bring your Indiana facility up to code, and help protect lives from the dangers of fire.

Luminous Egress Path Marking Code Compliance in Indiana

The provisions set out in Section 1025, adopted as part of the Indiana Building Code, provide an additional level of safety to any building’s egress path, 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.
