Photoluminescent Floor Identification Signs (FID)

Luminous Emergency Exit Floor Signs

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.

  • NFPA 101-2009 and 170-2009
  • NYC LL 141 of 2013 (Section BC 1024 Luminous Egress Path Markings)

IBC Section 1024

A sign shall be provided at each floor landing in exit enclosures connecting more than three stories designating the floor level, the terminus of the top and bottom of the exit enclosure and the identification of the stair or ramp. The signage shall also state the story of, and the direction to the exit discharge and the availability of roof access from the enclosure for the fire department.

Reliable Floor Exit Signs

Like Ecoglo’s other luminescent egress pathmarking signs, our emergency exit floor signs are manufactured using our patented process. Embedding photoluminescent particles in a clear durable polymer maximizes the efficiency of the photoluminescent particles. Gaining a charge from natural or artificial light, Ecoglo’s photluminescent egress pathmarking systems glow brightly for hours after the power has gone out.

Installing Photoluminescent Emergency Floor Exit Signs

Using a premium polyurethane adhesive and high-grade double sided tape, Ecoglo’s photoluminescent floor level signs can be installed on both textured and smooth surfaces. The tape provides initial bonding strength, while the polyurethane adhesive cures.

The installation is quick, safe and reliable. Your Ecoglo floor level exit signs will safely guide patrons through your building for years to come.
