Ecoglo G5001 Luminescent Guidance Strip Dimensions
Engineered for Durability
  • Designed with longevity in mind, Ecoglo’s photoluminescent guidance strips are manufactured using the latest technology, to ensure lifelong durability. Our patented manufacturing process gives you the advantage of having the most durable, and highly efficient photoluminescent guidance markings available.
  • The unique ridge design protects the luminous guidance strips from even the most abrasive wear and tear. Consequently, Ecoglo’s photoluminescent guidance strips provide long-lasting, reliable photoluminescent egress solutions.
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.
For Indoor Use and Outdoor Use
  • Tested to accelerated UV/weathering exposure, and proven to be highly resistant to the effects of UV/weathering.
  • The loss in performance is less than can be detected by the human eye when subjected to 6000 hours of UV exposure, which is similar to 30 years of outdoor exposure.
  • The polymer used in Ecoglo’s patented process is “long chain” which forms a strong UV resistant product when bonding.
Environmentally Friendly
  • Ecoglo is proud to offer the most environmentally friendly photoluminescent guidance strips on the market. Our glow-in-the-dark strips require zero energy to function and qualify for LEED points.
  • Our photoluminescent guidance strips are both non-toxic and non-radioactive. Our products are made completely out of recyclable material, which means you won’t have to pay disposal costs at the end of their lifecycle.
