Luminous Egress in Iowa

The requirement for luminous egress path markings became retroactive in the state of Iowa with the adoption of the 2015 International Building Code [see IFC 1104.25, 1025] as part of the 2015 Building Code of Iowa. Consequently, it is now mandatory for all new and existing high-rise commercial buildings to install luminous egress signage and path markings in stairwells and landings.

Providing a Safe and Illuminated Egress Path

When everything goes wrong, ecoglo® goes right! Our photoluminescent egress markings do not require any batteries, wiring or back up power to provide a reliable emergency light source. After simply gaining exposure to a natural or artificial light source, ecoglo®’s luminous products are ready to glow for hours after a power failure, lighting up a building’s egress pathway.

Stair treads, handrails and any obstructions within the exit path must always remain visible, regardless of the lighting condition. During emergency situations visibility, can often be negatively affected, leaving occupants feeling confused. Accordingly, providing a clearly visible egress path is critical to the safety of all occupants. Without the reliance on electricity, ecoglo® products provide a safe illuminated egress pathway no matter what!

Luminous Egress Path Marking Code Compliance in Iowa

Section 1025 provisions provide an additional level of safety to a building’s 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. 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 way not be familiar with the emergency exit path.
