Luminous Egress in West Virginia

Requirements for luminous egress path markings become retroactive to existing high-rise buildings with the adoption of the 2015 International Building Code [see IFC 1104.25, 1025], which was adopted state across the State and became effective in July 2016. Consequently, it is now mandatory for all new and existing high-rise commercial buildings in the state of West Virginia to install luminous egress signage and path markings in stairwells and landings, as per local code guidelines.

Ecoglo®’s expertly engineered luminous egress path markings exceed international building, fire and life safety codes, to bring you an emergency lighting product you can rely on!

Providing a Safe and Illuminated Egress Path

When the power in your West Virginia facility has failed, you can rest easy knowing occupants will be able to quickly, and safely find their way back to the exit discharge, thanks to Ecoglo®’s luminous egress path marking products. 

In all conditions the visibility of stair treads, handrails, and other obstructions within an egress path way is crucial. In emergency conditions, the visibility of these aspects cannot be understated. People’s vision can often be compromised under such circumstances, especially since they are under duress, so it is crucial for patrons of buildings to be able to easily find their way out to safety. Luminous and photoluminescent marking systems can save lives, as they glow brightly, even through smoke, when everything else fails. When everything else fails, luminous egress path markings are the last line of defense for a building’s occupants. 

Ecoglo®’s industry-leading products, and cost-effective solutions makes it easier than ever to bring your West Virginia facility up to code.

Luminous Egress Path Marking Code Compliance in Georgia

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.
