Luminous Egress in Tennessee

The Building Code 2012 of Tennessee made it mandatory for all new and existing high-rise buildings in the state to install luminous egress signage and path markings in stairwells and landings.

Luminous Egress Path Marking Code Compliance in Tennessee

In Tennessee, requirements for luminous egress path markings became retroactive to existing high-rise buildings with the implementation of the 2012 International Building Code, which was adopted as part of the Building Code 2012 of Tennessee. Under these regulations, it is now mandatory for all new and existing high-rise commercial buildings in the state of Tennessee to install luminous egress signage and path markings in stairwells and landings.

Section 1025 provisions provide an additional level of safety to buildings’ egress paths by requiring the installation of photoluminescent or self-illuminating marking systems that do not require electrical power and the associated wiring and circuits. This means that even if a building’s power supply fails to operate, photoluminescent egress markings ensures occupants

can safely egress a building via exit stairways. This is especially necessary in high-rise buildings, which feature a greater anticipated occupant load and occupants which way not be familiar with the emergency exit path.
