Luminous Egress in Missouri

The International Building Code has been requiring the installation of luminous egress path markings since 2009, in both new and existing high-rise commercial buildings. Many counties in the state of Missouri have adopted the 2009 IBC, or later editions. Where there is no local code, the 2012 IBC is adopted. Where applicable, high-rise commercial buildings in the state of Missouri must install luminous egress path markings.

For a cost-effective solution that exceeds code compliance, rely on ecoglo® for luminous egress in Missouri!

Luminous Egress Path Marking Code Compliance in Missouri

The egress provisions laid out in the IBC/IFC add an another level of safety to a building’s egress pathways by requiring the installation of photoluminescent or self-luminous marking systems that do not require electrical power and the associated wiring and circuits. Consequently, if a building’s power fails, photoluminescent egress markings ensures occupants are able to safely evacuate the building via the 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.
