Escape route marking material
A new strontium vinyl material is designed for use in escape route markings. Capable of glowing for more than 20 hours, the company says, the material facilitates an effective system to aid in safe evacuations. The material is available in rolls and sheets and is also suitable for outdoor use. Luminous tapes can be applied to walls and floors to point the way to safety. Luminous pressure-sensitive signs can be used to pinpoint the location of fire extinguishers and other rescue equipment. Also available in pigment form, the product can be molded, mixed, extruded or compounded with thermoplastics.
