Ecoglo Glow in the Dark Floor Identification Sign

Photoluminescent Floor Identification Signs (FID)

Floor level exit signs provide critical information essential to egress safety. As part of a photoluminescent egress pathmarking system, floor identification signs (FID) enhance both egress speeds and safety.

Ecoglo’s FID identify the stair or ramp, floor level, terminus of the top and bottom of the exit enclosure, availability of roof access from the enclosure and the story and direction to the exit discharge. Our emergency exit floor signs also include a braille floor indicator.

Each floor sign is custom made and meets International Code Council (ICC) and National Fire Protection Agency (NFPA) regulations.
