Luminous Egress in Maryland

Requirements for luminous egress path markings became retroactive to existing high-rise buildings with the implementation of the 2018 International Building Code [see IFC 1104.25, 1025], adopted as part of the Maryland Building Performance Standards, which requires each jurisdiction in Maryland to use the same edition of the same building codes. As such, it is now mandatory for all new and existing high-rise commercial buildings in the state of Maryland to install luminous egress signage and path markings in stairwells and landings.

To bring your Maryland facility up to code, rely on Ecoglo® to bring you industry-leading, cost-effective luminous egress path marking products.

Luminous Egress Path Marking Code Compliance in Maryland

Section 1025 provisions provide an additional level of safety to buildings’ 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. 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.
