Luminous Egress in Michigan

As part of the 2015 Michigan Building Code, the requirement for luminous egress path markings became retroactive to existing high-rise buildings, as per the adoption of the 2015 International Building Code [see IFC 1104.25, 1025]. As such, it is no mandatory for all new and existing high-rise commercial buildings in the state of Michigan to install luminous egress signage and path markings in stairwells and landings.

Providing a Safe and Illuminated Egress Path

If you have installed ecoglo®’s luminous egress path markings in your Michigan facility, you can rest easy knowing when the power fails in your building, the egress pathway will be brightly lit, safely guiding occupants to the exit discharge.

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.
