Ecoglo OB20025 Luminous Obstruction Marking Strip

The OB20025 Aluminum Base Photoluminescent Obstruction Marking Strips is ideal for areas required by code to have luminous path markings.

Ecoglo G250R-OB-C Luminous Obstruction Marking Strip

The G250R-OB & G250R-OB-C Photoluminescent Obstruction Strips are used to identify and improve visibility of obstructions within an egress pathway under all light conditions. 

Ecoglo G300F-OB Luminous Obstruction Makings Tape

Ecoglo®’s G300F-OB Photoluminescent Obstruction Marking Tape creates a safer luminous egress pathway by clearly marking any obstruction within the path. 

These high preforming photoluminescent strips and glow in the dark tapes are installed easily on both smooth and textured surfaces.

Installing the photoluminescent strips with a premium polyurethane adhesive creates an extremely durable, moisture resistant bond.

Ecoglo’s glow in the dark tape is easily installed on clean, dry surfaces. After applying the obstruction marking tape, allow 24 hours for the tape to gain maximum bond strength.

Photoluminescent perimeter markings within interior egress pathways of high rise buildings are required by the following fire and building codes:

Obstacles at or below 6 feet 6 inches (1981 mm) in height and projecting more than 4 inches (102 mm) into the egress path shall be outlined with markings not less than 1 inch (25 mm) in width comprised of a pattern of alternating equal bands, of luminous material and black, with the alternating bands not more than 2 inches (51 mm) thick and angled at 45 degrees (0.79 rad). Obstacles shall include, but are not limited to, standpipes, hose cabinets, wall projections, and restricted height areas.
