Providing a Safe and Illuminated Egress Path

If your Kansas facility faces a power outage, you can confidently rely on ecoglo®’s luminous egress path markings to brightly illuminate the way to the exit discharge, helping occupants to quickly and safely exit the building. 

No matter the conditions, the visibility of stair treads, handrails and any obstructions within an egress pathway is crucial, especially during emergencies. In emergency conditions, a person’s vision can often be compromised, especially because they may be under duress, so providing a clear egress path is crucial to safety. 

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

Luminous Egress Path Marking Code Compliance in Kansas

The egress requirements specified in Section 1025, which has been adopted in various regions throughout the State of Kansas, enhance the safety of the egress pathway within in any building, by requiring the installation of photoluminescent or self-illuminating marking systems, which do not require any electrical power. If a building’s power is to fail, the photoluminescent path markings ensure the egress pathway is still well lit and easy to follow, to help patrons quickly and easily find their way to the exit discharge.

Fire and Building Safety

The Kansas State Fire Marshal works hard to reduce deaths injuries, and property losses caused by the harms of fire. As you may know, one way to protect citizens from the harms of fire is to ensure each building has a clear, easy to follow egress pathway, which can easily be achieved with luminous egress path markings.
