Luminous Egress in Pennsylvania

The installation of luminous egress path markings became a retroactive requirement in the state of Pennsylvania with the adoption of the 2015 International Building Code [see IFC 1104.25, 1025] as part of the Uniform Construction Code. Effective as of October 1, 2018, all new and existing high-rise commercial buildings in the state of Pennsylvania are now required to install luminous egress signage and path markings in stairwells and landings.

Providing and Safe and Illuminated Egress Path

When everything goes dark, ecoglo® glows bright. Because our photoluminescent egress path markings do not require batteries, wiring or any back up power you can trust them to provide reliable egress lighting when the power fails. After gaining a charge simply from exposure to a natural or artificial light source, ecoglo®’s luminous egress path markings are ready to glow for hours, lighting the way to the exit discharge.

It is critical that stair treads, handrails and any obstructions within the exit path remain visible at all times in order to provide a safe egress. During emergency conditions this is especially important, as visibility can often be negatively affected, which can leave patrons feeling anxious about where to go. As such, providing a reliable source of emergency lighting, within an easy to follow egress pathway is critical for occupant safety and faster egress speeds.

Work with ecoglo® to create a failsafe, fully code compliant, and highly custom luminous egress path marking system in your Pennsylvania facility, at the most cost-effective price point on the market.

Luminous Egress Path Marking Code Compliance in Pennsylvania

The provisions outlined in Section 1025 provide an additional 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 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 may not be familiar with the emergency exit path.
