OB20025 Photoluminescent Obstruction Strip

The OB20025 Aluminum Base Photoluminescent Obstruction Strips are used to identify and improve visibility of obstructions within an egress pathway under all light conditions. The OB20025 is ideal for areas required by code to have luminous path markings. The non-radioactive, non-toxic photoluminescent strip is visible for many hours after the lights go out, having been charged from sunlight or artificial light.

Environmentally Friendly
  • LEED points qualified
  • Zero energy consumption
  • Non-Radioactive and Non-toxic
  • Recyclable; No disposable cost
OB20025 Photoluminescent Obstruction Strip
Standard Performance
Installed Durability
  • The rigid aluminum base spreads any applied load over a greater area of installation adhesive. Installation with a premium polyurethane adhesive/sealant is extremely durable, moisture resistant, and works very well on both smooth and textured surfaces.
